The father of UCLA's Lonzo Ball stated in an interview with Josh Peter of USA TODAY Sports that:

"Back in my heyday, I would kill Michael Jordan one-on-one."

"I would just back (Jordan) in and lift him off the ground and call a foul every time he fouls me when I do a jump hook to the right or the left. He cannot stop me one-on-one. He better make every shot 'cause he can't go around me. He's not fast enough. And he can only make so many shots outside before I make every bucket under the rim."

This isn't the first time the king of the helicopter parents has hit the headlines, as he has already stated that his eldest son Lonzo is better that two-time and unanimous MVP Steph Curry.

Now, that doesn't quite compare to Jordan being a...
