Former NBA player Derrick Allen “Rick” Mahorn will be making a return to basketball as coach of the BIG3’s new Enemies team beginning June 22nd.

A Brief History

The 6-foot-10 and outstandingly physical Mahorn is an NBA champion of 18 seasons. He’s also known as the “Baddest Bad Boy of them all” according to Detroit Pistons announcer George Blaha, playing as a leader of teams of the Detroit Bad Boys in the late 1980s

After winning an NBA Championship in 1989 with the Pistons, Mahorn joined the Philadelphia 76ers. During the 1991-92 season, he participated in the Italian Serie A, then made a comeback to the NBA – playing for the New Jersey Nets, and again for Philadelphia and Detroit.

The following season, Mahorn’s team wasn’t so fortunate… but this year, the 60-year old “Bad Boy” coach will be leading the Enemies expansion team where he’ll be joined by co-captain Lamar Odom, Gilbert Arenas, Perry Jones III, Craig Smith, Royce White and Frank Robinson.

We can’t wait to see former NBA players and legends like Rick Mahorn, as well as some of the top 50 NBA players of all time make another return to basketball in BIG3’s third and biggest season yet. Kicking off on Saturday, June 22nd, the games will be featuring an extended lineup of stars with 4 new teams and 6 new cities.
