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.

Dogs suck. They smell, shed, and are the biggest attention whores like their owners. They also eat their own crap and the owners enjoy kissing the same crap on the lips. Odd people they are. Oh ya, they piss everywhere!

no coyote in this one. you wouldn't find the little accessory dog for one....it was dead within a day of being lost. Obviously someone found it..duh!

I bet it got run over by someone..a stranger or her. Or it was locked in a purse with a tiara on it's head. Either one has a high possibility.

I just don't understand the dog lovers here that support poor responsibility. You all should be ashamed of yourselves for promoting this crap

Jamal Crawford could get charged with a tort for the simple fact that because his dog pissed in the mansion that he was renting which is wrong against someone's property. However Crawford has the right to a Procedural due process.

Gross, yes! Damage costing $28000, negative! $5000 tops for everything. Sounds to me like this landlord is trying to milk this guy for as much as possible.

This is yet another example of why the NBA, the NFL and all other sports associations need to offer MANDATORY classes for those newly drafted to their leagues. This guy probably came from nothing and went from living with nothing to living in a rented mansion. As a landlord myself, I've seen this same thing on a smaller scale. It's gotten to where I hate renting to "kids" right out of college. They don't know how to take care of anything. And they believe that since they rent it, they don't need to care for it, just tear it up and walk away afterword. Unfortunately I've had more than one tennant learn the hard way that you can ruin your credit with this type of attitude and loose a lot of deposit money in the meantime. I've been taken to small claims court more times than I can remember and I've NEVER lost a case. Pictures don't lie! I suspect this woman will win as well and he'll not only be out his deposit but all the money his lawyers will gladly take for losing the case for him! If I were the landlord, I'd be preparing a counter suit to get my attorney fees back as well.

don't rent to people with dogs if you don't want to accept the damages that a dog can create. it's really that simple.

Fresno has PLENTY of pretty, available women.    

This guy is a jackass for two reasons.

1. renting a mansion (especially with a $20,000 deposit) is stupid. Real estate in Atlanta is cheap. He overpaid. Just young and dumb.

2. If you're a renter, why would you disrespect someone's home with fecal matter and urine splattered throughout? It's disrespectful.
