Derrick Allen “Rick” Mahorn is an 18 season NBA veteran, NBA champion and popular radio analyst for the Detroit Pistons. One of the “Bad Boys” of the Pistons’ popular late-eighties team, Mahorn remains one of the most revered athletes in the city’s history. Dubbed by Pistons announcer George Blaha as the “Baddest Bad Boy of them all,” Mahorn gained a reputation for his physical but effective style of play. He served as a team leader of the Detroit Bad Boys teams of the late 1980s, winning an NBA Championship in 1989 along with Hall of Famers Isiah Thomas,
Joe Dumars and Dennis Rodman.
After leaving the Pistons, Mahorn began his first stint with the Philadelphia 76ers, where he teamed with the one and only Charles Barkley to form the top-rebounding duo nicknamed “Thump N’ Bump.” After two seasons, Mahorn moved to the Italian Serie A for the 1991–92 season. He later returned to his stellar NBA career, playing for the New Jersey Nets and again for the 76ers and Pistons. Later on, Rick teamed up with his Bad Boy partner Bill Laimbeer coaching the WNBA’s Detroit Shock to two world championships in 2006 and 2008.
