If Michael Jordan truly feels he could defeat LaVar Ball in a game of one-on-one with one leg, the head of the Big Baller Brand will try to do him one better.

"C'mon, I didn't even play basketball in the pros and they're talking about me and Michael Jordan. That's what I'm talking about. He tells me he can beat me with one leg. Well, guess what: I can beat him with one hand. Now we're both ... looking like we can't play," Ball said during a recent appearance on "The Really Big Show" on ESPN 850 WKNR in Cleveland.

The BBB Twitter account then tweeted out a challenge to the NBA icon Tuesday afternoon, suggesting he and Ball put their money where their mouths are and play each other on pay-per-view with their respective stipulations:

The fact that people are even mentioning Ball's name in the same breath as Jordan's is a win for the Big Baller Brand, as far as he's concerned.

"Look at everybody, man. Everybody used to say, 'You know, I think Wilt Chamberlain is better than Shaq; I think Oscar Robertson is better than LeBron.' Now the story is LaVar is better than Michael Jordan," Ball added.
