Rick Mahorn was born September 21, 1958 in Hartford, Connecticut and is a former NBA basketball player who, at 6'10, played power forward and center, most notably for the Detroit Pistons. Mahorn played college basketball at Hampton University.
As dubbed by Piston announcer George Blaha, Mahorn was the "Baddest Bad Boy of them all." Mahorn gained a reputation for physical play, which he used to compensate for his relatively limited leaping ability. He served as one of the team leaders of the Detroit Bad Boys teams of the late 1980s.
In 1989, Mahorn won his only NBA championship with the Pistons. Though he was a beloved member of the team, he was left unprotected in the 1989 expansion draft, as teams could protect only eight of their twelve players. After he was selected by the new Minnesota Timberwolves, Pistons general manager Jack McCloskey tried in vain to trade to get him back. However, Mahorn never played for Minnesota, being traded instead to the Philadelphia 76ers, where he teamed with superstar Charles Barkley to form the top-rebounding duo of "Thump N' Bump." After two seasons, Mahorn moved to the Italian Serie A league for the 1991-92 season.
Mahorn later played for the New Jersey Nets for four seasons, before returning to the Pistons in 1996-97. He retired after the 1999 season, after a second stint with the 76ers. Mahorn then served as a color commentator for Pistons radio broadcasts, and as an assistant coach under former teammate Bill Laimbeer with the WNBA's Detroit Shock. Together with wife Donyale, he has six children.
On July 22, 2008, at a Sparks-Shock game, Mahorn attempted to break up a brawl. When attempting to restrain Lisa Leslie, he put his left hand out and Leslie fell to the ground. He was described as being a "peacemaker" but who escalated the situation when he pushed Leslie. Mahorn was suspended for two games.
On June 15, 2009 he became the head coach of the Shock, a position he held until the franchise moved to Tulsa after the season.
