NBA Legend Hates Being Washed Up, Sues

5/19/2009 7:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Eigin BaylorElgin Baylor, one of the greatest players in the history of the NBA, is literally dripping with anger -- and rain -- because the guy claims there's a serious problem with the roof of his Beverly Hills mansion.

It all started in February 2008 -- when a "violent rainstorm" pounded Baylor's home, and leaked water damaging several rooms. Baylor claims his insurance company cut him a check, but a few months later they wanted to do testing on his roof -- that's when Elgin claims things went from bad to worse.

In the lawsuit, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, Baylor claims the company "failed to repair damages from the testing, leaving holes and openings in the structure." By February 2009 -- Baylor claims the holes still hadn't been repaired -- and a new rainstorm messed the house up even worse.

Now, he's suing his insurance company and the builder for unspecified damages.

Wow    

He paid his insurance, the builder was paid, and they did a crappy job. This is a legitimate complaint.

Something doesn't add up. The insurance comp. paid for the repairs, then came back to test, leaving roof holes and the interior to be exposed to the elements? And the homeowner waited till it rained again? What's their side of the story?

Was the roof repaired AFTER the insurance check was issued?
The roof was already damaged, he was given money to fix it, doesn't sound like he spent the money wisely.

I wonder if Elgin will claim that the leaks are due to racism. Remember when he made that claim about Donald Sterling----after working for him for 20+ years?
