LaVar Ball, who most recently said he could beat Michael Jordan with one hand tied behind his back, lost a shooting contest on Sunday to rapper Ice Cube with the benefit of both hands untied.
For 90 seconds, Ball and Ice Cube shot “4-pointers,” 30 feet from the basket, during an intermission at the rapper’s BIG3 event at Staples Center.
LaVar raised some tension when he told USA TODAY Sports that he would “kill” Jordan in their heyday. Two weeks ago, Jordan responded, saying, “I don’t think he could beat me if I was one-legged.”
Surprisingly it was Ice Cube, not Jordan, who made the the one-on-one challenge happen. LaVar accepted the challenge and on Sunday showed up at the Staples Center.
LaVar missed more than a half dozen attempts from 4-point range and Ice Cube became the winner of the night.
