  • Jimmy v the blobfish Cruz and Kimmel trash-talk before shooting hoops

After sparring with words, Senator Ted Cruz challenged Jimmy Kimmel to a basketball game to prove who was the bigger baller, and the late-night host accepted. Ted Cruz in the so-called "Blobfish Basketball Classic" - you could walk away with $160 in profit.

Jimmy a couple weeks back poked fun at Ted for essentially jinxing the Houston Rockets during the National Basketball Association playoffs. Kimmel said Cruz looked like a blobfish and a Munster from the eponymous 1960s television show The Munsters. "I'm not a basketball player and yet I know deep in my heart I know that I must be able to beat Ted Cruz".

Grayson Allen prepped Ted Cruz and confidently predicted the USA senator from Texas would top late-night TV star Jimmy Kimmel in their one-on-one basketball battle.

Kimmel has been making headlines for some time now for his frequent emotional outbursts, many of which find him at odds with the current administration and President Trump's supporters, who accuse him of using his TV show as a platform from which to launch vicious monologues against his personal enemies.

You besmirched my support for the @HoustonRockets So let's settle this man-to-man: one-on-one, hoops (or "ring-ball", if you prefer). "If I lose I'm not going home".
