because he looks like Mike!
Only he, Heckard, is 8 years older and 6 inches shorter.
In the suit, he claimed a great deal of physical and emotional damage has been inflicted upon him in the past 15 years for looking like Mike. His friends and family always make fun of him for that; thus, challenging the popular notion that looking like someone like Michael Jordan is a compliment.
Anyway. He's suing Nike because it made MJ the icon he is, and suing MJ because he became .. well .. MJ. For that, he's seeking $800 million (yes, 6 zeros next to the 800) worth of damages.
He dropped the suit yesterday without stating any reasons. Could MJ have paid him hush-hush money? I mean .. he had a good case, did he not?
Please. Do not misjudge the guy. Take a look for yourself.
Poor Allen. Broke my heart :(
Actually, I think MJ has a good case if he counter-sues and says "you have no right to have my copyrighted face."
