I touched on this on my Magic vs. Hawks Recap, but now that the full story is out, I figured I would make a full entry about it.
Introducing first, fighting out of the blue corner, this man is a former NBA ref. He stands roughly around 6-feet-2-inches tall, weighing in at 200 pounds. He now owns a custom clothing company. Fighting out of Atlanta, Georgia. 36 year old, Rashan “Black-Eye” Michels!
Now, fighting out of the red corner, this man is a former NBA player and current NBA legend. He stands 6-feet-8-inches tall, weighing in at 250 pounds. He is currently the Atlanta Hawks TV announcer. Fighting out of Atlanta, Georgia, representing the Atlanta Hawks. 51 year old, Dominique ” The Human Highlight Film” Wilkins!!!!!
Let’s Get Ready To Rumble!!!!
Well, that ended quickly….and yes, Dominique Wilkins won the altercation. I know what you’re thinking, what caused the whole event to transpire?
Well, Reported by the AJC, the attacker, Rashan S. Michel, told authorities that he Dominique Wilkins owed him money ($12,500) for suits that were purchased years ago. Michel made his way on to the Atlanta Hawks home floor and “at some point physically assaulted both Mr. Wilkins and the security guard for the Hawks.” .
Rashan Michels was promptly arrested and was taken into custody by the Atlanta Police Department. Thankfully, nothing too tragic happened as Dominique Wilkins is safe an uninjured.
Anyway, this story will likely to continue as TMZ reports that Rashan Michels plans to sue Dominique Wilkins and the Atlanta Hawks organization…
Rashan Michel — a former NBA referee — and he claims he was calmly trying to work out a deal over the money he says ‘Nique owes him for custom suits.
Michel claims Wilkins responded by yelling, “F**k You!” … then security wrestled him to the ground … and that’s when the Hall of Famer slugged him. Michel is adamant that he did NOT hit Wilkins first.
Michel tells us he plans on suing Wilkins and the Hawks organization — as well as subpoenaing thesurveillance footage … which he claims proves his side of the story.
Final Thought: How dumb is this guy? If someone owes you money, you don’t approach him or attack him in the place where he is worshiped the most and where he has countless people backing him up. Talk about homecourt advantage….
Also, don’t mess with Dominique or this will happen to you.
