You know a team is dirty if they get three guys on the dirtiest 25 players in history list, and if you told an average NBA fan that was the case and asked them which team it was, they’d all know it was from the 80s Pistons. Rick Mahorn was the baddest Bad Boy of them all. Unlike Laimbeer and Rodman, Mahorn was not much to write home about as an NBA player. He averaged under seven points a game for his career and did little other than defend and rebound.
But he was the enforcer off the bench, the guy that used up his six fouls gleefully, wearing opponents down with his physicality in the post and banging on the boards.
