LaVar Ball is at it again, and this time he’s issued a challenge to a Hall of Fame center. But Shaquille O’Neal’s retort shows the Big Diesel isn’t taking the Big Baller too seriously.
Ball recently was asked about the competitive rivalry between his son, LaMelo, and O’Neal’s son, Shareef.
Naturally, Ball boasted that LaMelo (a 5-star Class of 2019 point guard) would handle Shareef (a 4-star Class of 2018 power forward).
Ball decided to take it further and bring the dads into it, claiming the Balls would ”kill” the O’Neals in a game of 2-on-2.

The LSU legend definitely wasn’t going to let this go unanswered.
Needless to say, the four-time NBA champion center went to his bag of silliness to shut down LaVar, going as far as to make a follicle promise.
If lavar ball beats me I'll superglue this wig to my head forever. It's only one BIG BALLER BRAND and that's me THE SHAQ BRAND. Wake up bro. I made more free throws in a game then the Points you averaged mr 2.2 a game. Respect this first balloter #relax #justwatchyoursonplay #shhhhhh #youtoloud #youcanneverbeattheonealboyz
There’s little likelihood this matchup will happen, and even if it does, Shaq would just bully LaVar into the pavement. The thought of Shaq turning into the Big Blondie is a hilarious thought, though.
