Daily Blog #42: LaVar v. The World (MJ), Will It Ever End?

While baseball is great and the Cubs are finally not consistently fucking trash, I’m so fucking done with summer sports. Training camp is hot as fuck and doesn’t prove anything as players are sleeping in college dorms, dancing, and  going maybe 50% in practice. What good is that? We already know the Pats are going to be in the Super Bowl for the AFC, and there’s only a handful that ever win the NFC, so why are people getting so worked up over nothing?!

Anyways, you know I really have nothing to write about when I’m in double digits with BBB/LaVar/Ball Fam blogs. All the same, the saga is never ending, and I’ve gotta support my boy.

Mike’s Response

"You got to understand the source. I think he played college, maybe?... He averaged 2.2 points a game. Really?... It doesn't deserve a response, but I'm [going to] give it to you because you asked the question. I don't think he could beat me if I was one-legged."

I don’t even think trying to debate this is worth my time. Reason 1: I’m a Bulls fan, so hating on MJ the GOAT is Chicago sacrilege. Reason 2: Mike’s right, Var averaged 2.2 a game in college while he was leading the Bulls to three peats and 72-10 win seasons. The only flaw to this whole thing, is how did he know exactly how many points LaVar averaged in his time at Washington State when he stated earlier he wasn’t even sure if the BBB frontman even played in college? Hmm… interesting Michael, seems like you’ve been doing a little more research and care a bit more than you put off. It’s not like his 2.2 points/game average is hidden or a widely unknown fact, but if he knew, why the fuck would he act like he wasn’t even sure he played? Also hey Mike, you’re about 6 month too late with this one. The basketball world has moved on as nobody actually thinks he can beat you.

LaVar Strikes Back

ESPN 850 WKNR, CLEVELAND: "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... 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 both look like we out there like we can't play." 

I truly expected better from you LaVar. You’re a media mogul who’s been covered almost daily in today’s ultra-competitive era for the last 8 months, you really should know how the media works. ESPN, Bleacher Report, and all the other main media outlets realize nobody gives a shit about baseball, training camp, and random sports 24/7, so they cover anything and everything you say. You v. MJ is not even close to Wilt v. Shaq or Oscar v. LBJ, and that’s a fact, so while I’m on your side, you need to learn to respect the game and your elders. Your comeback is also basically the same one you probably used in the 4th grade whenever anyone threw shade at you, so please, ask your sons for some comebacks, cause that dept. of your game needs work.

Round 1 went to Var as MJ, as he should, didn’t care enough to grace the public with a respond, but with Round 2, I’m torn, but I think it’s gotta go to LaVar for a variety of reasons.

  1. I’m disappointed Mike even took the time to do research and diss LaVar’s wildly inaccurate accusations.
  2. 99.99% of the population knows he could beat that dude in a wheelchair with a broken wheel and nubs for hands.
  3. His response came in front of a bunch of 10 year olds doesn’t make this any better.
  4. He’s spending his time dissing guys who’ve never even played in the league and would be nothing without his sons instead of focusing on making the playoffs in maybe the weakest conference in basketball history.

If the two played would MJ win? Abso-fucking-loutly, like I said I’m not debating that. But the point remains it’s pathetic he even acknowledged his existence.

#GoVarGo I just want to use this GIF as much as I possibly can cause it’s probably the only usable one from post-Skip First Take.

Until tomorrow.
