Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell is likely drugged up on opiates right now after undergoing surgery to repair the groin injury he suffered during the AFC playoffs. Instead of popping a Xanax, drinking a beer, and melting into his couch for a movie marathon like the rest of us would, the MVP candidate took to Twitter to eviscerate the increasingly mouthy LaVar Ball.

LaVar Ball, father of NBA lottery pick hopeful Lonzo Ball of UCLA and UCLA commits LiAngelo and LaMelo, has publicly said some batshit crazy things as of late that many believe could hinder where his son is picked in the upcoming NBA Draft.

For example, LaVar said the he and his sons won’t take any less than one billion dollars for a show deal. He also took a shot at LeBron James’ young sons, predicting that they’ll be whack at basketball because LeBron doesn’t have enough time to dedicate to helping them grow as players. Despite all this lunacy, maybe the most idiotic thing LaVar has said is that he would ‘kill’ Michael Jordan one-on-one in both of their primes.

Le’Veon Bell took to Twitter to remind LaVar, who is currently  6-7, 270 pounds, what caliber of player he was at Washington State.

LaVar played basketball at Washington State where he averaged 2 points per game before transferring to Cal State – Los Angeles, a Division II program. He was an All-Conference player there in 1990, according to For The Win.

MJ’s advice to Ball:

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
