Michael Jordan
doesn't need Maury Povich to tell him he's not the daddy, he says he knows it already ... and filed documents today requesting the paternity case filed against him be dismissed.

As TMZ first reported, Pamela Smith filed docs in Fulton County, GA in an attempt to establish the NBA legend as father of her son, Grant Pierce Jay Jordan Reynolds, aka Taj.

Jordan's lawyer filed to have the case dismissed today, saying paternity of the teen had already been established ... and #23 was not the father.

MJ's rep released a statement saying, "Public records show that the paternity of the child was established in a prior case in this same court many years ago and that Michael Jordan is not the father."

The statement continued, "It is unfortunate that well-known figures are the target of these kind of claims. Michael Jordan will vigorously defend himself and his reputation."

Taj posted a video on YouTube declaring MJ is his father. So far ... no update to that clip.

And the kid does favor him in some way. His head shape, the structure of his face. Not his features, but the structure of his face is exactly like MJs. Even that smirk he's making looks like if he were to go into a fulls mile he'd probably look like MJ.

You don't always look exactly like your father. Some genes from your grandparents and great grandparents on both sides can pop up sometimes.

For example, one of my nephews looks nothing like his father, but he does look like his mother's grandfather on her father side as a child.


But that is definitely his son man.

If he would have kept his pee-pee in his pants, no one could accuse this negroid of being their baby's daddy!

Love between their parents. Mother just looking for a money and thinking because she laid up and pregnant on purpose thinking she belongs in his world. And the MJs of this world stop screwing every women who's going to try live a life she can't afford without laying on her back. At least get with someone who has just as much to lose as you.
