Rick Mahorn wasted no time laying down the law at Highland Park Community High School today.
“How old are you?” the former Detroit Pistons power forward asked a student — and fan — who greeted him by his first name.
“18,” the student responded.
“I’m 52. And you’re going to call me Rick Mahorn? I’m Mr. Mahorn,” he said.
Mahorn stepped into the role of principal at the high school today, sitting in on classes, talking one-on-one with students, even helping out with teachers in their instruction.
There are a number of reasons this corner has always had an authentic appreciation for the Detroit Pistons of Chuck Daly.
Kudos to Mr. Mahorn.
