MLive: Bad Boys against the ’04 team; seven-game series; who wins? Rick Mahorn: We win 4-2. We’d give them one because they’d have the home-court advantage. (Laughs) MLive: What about the other one? Mahorn: Other one somebody might have got hurt.
Rick Mahorn Rumors
The leader of the group – the massive, wide-bodied Mahorn – was in Sleep Train Arena, calling the game for Pistons radio, and he thought Robinson went over the edge. “That was dirty,” Mahorn said Thursday when reached on his cellphone. “We all have mental lapses, but you don’t take your frustration out in a way that will hurt somebody. I didn’t have the physical gifts or the flight of a Dominique Wilkins. I used my body and my width to position. I would use my big (butt) to clear some room. “But we never tried to bust somebody in the mouth. You don’t hit somebody in the face. You don’t want to be that guy, because now everything he does is going to be looked at. The referees remember.”
