Bankruptcy and Mahorn.
Rick Mahorn stayed loyal to Detroit after his retirement by accepting a role as a Pistons radio analyst. Perhaps he was a bit too loyal when he decided to invest and finance in several properties in the Detroit metro area.
His investments failed when the Motor City’s economy tanked in the late 2000s leading him in facing financial crisis. Mahorn declared bankruptcy in 2010 by listing over $500,000 in liabilities. He and his wife claimed only $1,101 to their name which was shocking to know. He even had to sell his championship ring to help cover costs which shows the financial struggles he faced.
Also, to add insult to injury, documents showed Mahorn also owed $55 in late fees to a local library.
