    Honestly.

    Words fail me.

    "What made Heckard decide to file suit against Jordan and Knight for $416 million each?

    "Well, you figure with my age and you multiply that times seven and then I turn around and I figure that's what it all boils down to."

    Hilarious.

    This man deserves to die of gonorrhea and rot in Hell. I can't emphasize that strongly enough.

    That's absolutely hilarious.

    You do realize that this will not see one day in court, right? It will be thrown out and the man will probably have to pay fines equalling Knight's and Jordan's lawyer fees as well as court costs.

    Ok, I hate to take this tangent, but...
    Why, oh, why, oh, why do lunatics like this get any coverage at all?

    This is all soccer's fault. All of it.

    Not true.

    This is clearly the media's fault.

    Meanwhile, a guy in Chicago who looks like Sam Bowie is suing him.

    Meanwhile, he looks more like Lou Gossett Jr. than MJ.

    And I don't see any horns.

    So, he's tired of being "accused" of being MJ? I'd think that was a compliment, not something to cause emotional suffering. What a dumbass.

    Just for deterrent effect, Jordan should file a massive countersuit.

    I'd also sic a squadron of PI's on this guy, find out if ever once in his life did he go along willingly with being confused with Jordan, and sue his ass to kingdom come as a result.

    Of course, Jordan would be absolutely demolished in the media as a gorilla squashing a mosquito, but you know what? Sometimes gorillas have to squash mosquitos.

    This guy needs to turn this into a promising career. He could get free drinks, sleep with lots of hot (but dumb) women, etc.
    Instead, he says things like this:
    "Even when I go to the gym I'm being accused of playing ball like him (Jordan)," Heckard said.
