As if the story of the fight between former NBA official Rashan Michel and NBA great Dominique Wilkins wasn't odd enough, it gets even stranger.
This feud's been going on for quite a while.
Court records from Fulton County State Court indicate that Michel filed a lawsuit against Wilkins for the alleged unpaid clothing on April 23, 2010. According to 11Alive.com, Michel claimed that Wilkins owes him $12,072 for six suits, which he sold to "The Human Highlight Film" between January and May of 2009.
Each suit cost $1,500. Michel added a 20-percent late fee for the overdue balance and socked the NBA Hall of Famer with Fulton County's 9-percent sales tax and a $300 shipping and handling fee as part of the transaction, according to a document posted on the television station's website.
It's kind of shocking that with a lawsuit pending, that Michel would approach Wilkins, more or less allegedly try to cold-cock the former Atlanta Hawks star.
Wilkins got the better of Michel on Wednesday night, landing a couple of blows to the trouble-making tailor's face in a fracas that was caught on video. It remains to be seen who will win in a court of law.
