Seems logical to me

Local man sues Jordan, Nike for resemblance

A Portland man is suing Michael Jordan and Nike for a combined $832 million. Mr. Allen Heckard says he’s been mistaken as Michael Jordan nearly every day over the past 15 years and he’s tired of it.



Heckard is suing Jordan for defamation and permanent injury and emotional pain and suffering. He’s suing Knight for defamation and permanent injury for promoting Jordan and making him one of the most recognized men in the world.

Yes, being confused with one of the most famous people in the world must really suck.

Dressed in blue Air Jordan tennis shoes, Heckard might seem to be actually trying to look like Jordan but Heckard doesn’t see it that way.

He says he has the right to buy any type of shoe he wants and Jordan's are comfortable. However, we might point out that this could be a flaw in his case that he is tired of being confused for Jordan. Perhaps wearing his shoes when there are, oh I don't know, like 200 other types of tennis shoes to choose from, could be a problem with the judge.

Some might wonder how he decided to sue Knight and Jordan for $416-million each. "Well, you figure with my age and you multiply that times seven and ah, then I turn around and ah I figure that's what it all boils down to."

Bravo. We couldn't be more supportive of the man. And if he wins, we are suing Brad Pitt and all the producers of his movies, because, dammit, we are tired of the harrassment as well.
