NBA Star in DOG FIGHT Over Urine Stains

4/6/2011 9:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Atlanta Hawks star Jamal Crawford is pissed at his former landlord -- which is ironic, because the landlord claims Crawford's dogs pissed all over his home -- and now the two are headed for court.


Crawford has filed a lawsuit against the landlord -- claiming she won't return his $20,000 deposit on an Atlanta mansion he rented ... insisting he only caused $1,700 in damage during his stay.

But according to MyFoxAtlanta.com -- the landlord says she's going EASY on the guy -- because his massive doggies -- 2 bull mastiffs and a rottweiler -- relieved themselves all over the home ... we're talking #1s AND #2s.

In fact, the landlord claims the designer blinds are stained with dog pee ... and she has to replace the carpets because the smell is unbearable. She claims the dogs also chewed up several banisters and doors ... and the plumbing needs to be replaced because the sinks were clogged up with dog food.

In total, the landlord claims Crawford caused more than $28k in damages.

FYI -- Crawford pulled in $10.1 million with the Hawks this year ... but he's suing for $60k plus attorney fees.

So far, no court date has been set.

How could he stand to live in that mess. If he was to lazy to train his dog and take it out every hour then maybe he shouldnt have a dog.I knew someone that had a half million dollar house and her dogs would pee everywhere walls, floors. I just dont understand people that get really nices houses and allow their pets to destroy the house. Im not talking about accidents that happen, I know thats just happens sometimes when your training.

Jamal and his Pit bull dogs completely trashed my friends house. The dogs bit up the doors, the hard wood floors and completely trashed the house. This house had to be completely redone before the owner could move back in. The owner was devasted.

I actually believe this story. I lease homes & worthless, no-good tenants don't take care of the homes...and I'm an ANIMAL LOVER, but it's DISGUSTING what tenants let their animals do to a home. Had to replace all brand new carpet in home due to this same scenario as described in this story.

maybe some genius landlords will invent or come up with a 'rent tenant robot' that can be deactivated at will. it won't make noise, unless they want it to, it won't do anything that the landlord doesn't like. now that would be landlord utopia. AND!!! it would pay a truckload of rent. daily. so they can score as much ass, coke or meth and speed as they want.

Truly repulsive! Depending on how much urine is on the floors the actual floor may have to be torn up. There is just no getting rid of that smell! People like this should never be allowed to have a pet.

@Todo Momento
You sound about as smart as the Jamal Crawford. Why blame the landlord when this guy is so obviously a jerk that doesn't look after his pets or property??
