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.

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.

Shocked and Awed    

JAMAL CRAWFORD IS A LIAR AND a BULLY! Trying to sue and to prey on a Single Mom trying to do the right thing for her kids!
He VIOLATED his home rental agreement from the day he signed the rental papers and agreed to take care of her home, the agreement only allowed for one SMALL DOG, he moved in THREE HUGE DOGS. And now HE is SUING her???? LAMAR CRAWFORD IS A LIAR- HE LIED to her from the very beginning and ONLY found out about him VIOLATING the agreement when the damage had been done and she personally saw the dogs on her property. Now she is faced with THOUSANDS of dollars she does not have to fix his irresponsibility. I think he owes her way much more than the $28,000 in damages he did to her home. You are a CHEAP, irresponsible, LYING, BULLY of a Man that does not honor his commitments.

I KNOW the homeowner personally and can attest to the damages he and his dogs did. I know the property BEFORE AND AFTER, He was so cheap and horrible to her property he was even too cheap to buy his own furniture and used her pool furniture as living room furniture. His dogs destroyed the property and YES It was $28,000 worth of repairs! Basically she has to REPLACE everything they damaged because it can not be salvaged, the list is endless. Carpets, doors, windows, custom made curtains, pool, plumbing....it's endless.

FYI, Did you know that according to his Manager, David Hudson, Jamal Crawford ordered his "Chef" to "move and drive" his dogs in the MIDDLE OF THE HEAT OF SUMMER in the back of an enclosed PENSKE RENTAL TRUCK, and big surprise, he "cooked" his poor dogs, THEY DIED. He needs to be investigated by the ASPCA for animal cruelty.

The Truth Make You Free    

Jamal settle with this landlord which is the noble thing to do; cut your losses. Don't tarnish your name with something so trivial. If this Landlord is lying the Bible says what her end will be and visa-versa. The one that loves and prays for you continually.
