Man sues Jordan as look-alike

July 7, 2006 at 2:06 PM   |   Comments

PORTLAND, Ore., July 7 (UPI) -- A Portland, Ore., man is suing Michael Jordan because, he says, he's often mistaken for the basketball superstar and is tired of it.

Allen Heckard is also suing Nike founder Phil Knight for making Jordan one of the most recognized men in the world, KGW-TV, Portland, reports.

He's asking for a combined $832 million -- $416 million each.

"I'm constantly being accused of looking like Michael and it makes it very uncomfortable for me," Heckard said.

KGW says Heckard stands just over six feet tall, about six inches shorter than Jordan, but has a shaved head with an earring in his left ear. He plays a lot of basketball, he says, and wears Air Jordan shoes because they're comfortable.
