Rick Mahorn was the baddest of the Bad Boys. Mahorn was well known for his huge rear-end that he wasn't afraid to plow people over with. He represented the Bad Boys perfectly with his antics both on the court and off with his infamous media handlings. After being picked up by Minnesota in the 1989 Expansion Draft, Pistons GM Jack McCloskey tried in vain to trade to get him back. The Wolves wouldn't have it, and Detroit lost one of its most beloved sports figures.
