Bowl games are great, but it's time for a major year end sporting event: Papa v. Papa 2017.

This gripping mano a mano showdown will be conducted in the following categories:

- Oral debate

- Courtside harangue

- 1 on 1 in the paint

- H-O-R-S-E-S A-S-S

- Opinionation & Judgmentality

- Freestyle Insufferability

- Tangential referentiality

- Knowledge of UCLA history and legacy

- "No, I'm not leaving your son out of this"

- Grateful Dead trivia

- Baltic states McDonald's drive thru skills

Our two combatants will be LaVar Ball and Bill Walton.

Freestyle Insufferability

I love this. Also, I think this is where LaVar distances himself.

But Bill makes up ground in the Grateful Dead trivia category, assuming the acid doesn't kick in at just the right time, leading him to meander off into a 6 hour diatribe on the virtues of kind veggie burritos.
