Uh-oh. Looks like Chuck wants to settle things right where it should be done.

When LaVar Ball said in the interview that there's no chance that Michael Jordan can beat him one-on-one, the public expressed their displeasure on various social media sites to back the best basketball player to ever play the sport. "His Airness" did not even answer the remarks belittling his legacy in the world.

Charles Barkley, however, did not find it amusing. The outspoken former NBA all-star issued a challenge to Ball and put his basketball mastery to test.

In the interview made by ESPN, Barkley, an 11-time NBA All Star, issued a challenge to the 49-year old Ball to a one-on-one match and see how would the guy fare against him if he can really beat Michael Jordan on-on-one.

"He says I didn't win a championship. I said to myself, 'I need to go back and Google this guy, because maybe I missed the Ball era, when he was dominating and winning championships everywhere else," Barkley stated. "I'm too old and fat to play basketball, but I'll challenge Mr. Ball to a one-on-one. How about that?," he added.

He strongly believes that they are about of the same age but he's confident that the he cannot be just beaten by somebody who just averaged 2 points a game at one-on-one. The 6-foot-6 Barkley, according to ClutchPoints, added more fuel to the fire when he explained how to average 2 points in basketball, saying that for somebody to average 2-points a game, that person needs to be an awful player.

The former Olympian also said that the media shouldn't be interviewing guys who averaged 2 points in college but with the media airing all his catchy stuff, he's gaining the attention that his sons should have been getting.

But LaVar Ball simply cannot be stopped.

On the same article published by ClutchPoints, Ball reiterated that Barkley was the one who wanted to get attention from the press. Ball added that Barkley never really wanted to play him "because he's too big and Chuck should stick with his current job as an analyst for TNT along with Shaquille O'Neal, and and eat donut.

Chuck had Ball's Achilles heel by highlighting his 2.point average in college while Ball can easily hit Barkley via his failure to win the title.
