The Bad Boys—a collection of incredible basketball talent revered in Detroit and despised throughout the rest of the National Basketball Association. They were back-to-back NBA champions and the monkey (or 600-pound gorilla) that Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls had to get off their backs before they could assume the NBA’s throne. In Rick Mahorn’s Tales from the Detroit Pistons, the former Bad Boy shares stories that cover all the key characters, including Isiah Thomas, Bill Laimbeer, Joe Dumars, John Salley, Vinny Johnson, Dennis Rodman, and coach Chuck Daly. Mahorn discusses the wars with the Bulls, Celtics, Knicks, and championship battles with the Lakers and Blazers. The book also examines the sorry state of the franchise before the two titles, their attempts to recapture their NBA magic with Grant Hill and Jerry Stackhouse, and the recent run of success that Dumars is having as the team’s general manager. Mahorn’s role as color analyst for Pistons’ radio broadcasts has kept him in the loop as Dumars has added players like Rip Hamilton, Rasheed Wallace, and Darko Milicic, along with coach Larry Brown, over the past few seasons. Sharing stories from his playing and announcing days is a part of what makes Rick Mahorn’s Tales from the Detroit Pistons special.

About the Author:

Rick Mahorn, after a successful 18-year NBA career, now serves as the color analyst for Pistons’ radio broadcasts. He was selected in the second round of the 1980 NBA draft by the Washington Bullets (now Wizards) and later played for Detroit, Philadelphia, and New Jersey. The 6’10" power forward’s ultimate success as a player came during his four years with Detroit, culminating in the Pistons’ first NBA championship in 1988-89. He also earned All-NBA second team defensive honors that season. A four-year letterman at Hampton Institute in Virginia, Mahorn was a three-time NCAA Division II and NAIA All-American and owned 18 school records. Before joining the broadcast booth, he was an assistant coach in the NBA and a head coach in the CBA.

Perry A. Farrell has been at the Detroit Free Press for 15 years and during that time has covered the NBA, NFL, Major League Baseball, and nine Final Fours. His other professional stops include the Louisville Courier-Journal and the Milwaukee Journal, where he covered the University of Wisconsin for four years. Farrell has been covering the Pistons full-time for seven years and he has seen many coaches—Chuck Daly, Ron Rothstein, Doug Collins, Alvin Gentry, George Irvine, and Rick Carlisle—come and go.
