80s Fight: Charles Oakley & Rick Mahorn Fight After Hard Foul on Michael Jordan
Check out this fight between two of the baddest (and some would say dirtiest) enforcers in NBA history: Rick Mahorn and Charles Oakley.
The battle between the bruisers is pay-per-view worthy and I’m pretty sure Michael Jordan would gladly pay a lot of money to see his good friend Oakley beat up the Bad Boy who has had his share of hard fouls on his Airness, even when he was a member of the 76ers.
But I don’t want to make Mahorn sound like he was just some goon with 5 fouls to give. The 2nd round pick played 18 years in the league and averaged close to a double-double for 5 of them. The NBA champ also was a member of the All-Defensive 2nd team and went on to win 2 championships as a WNBA coach. He also once got suspended by the WNBA for “using excessive force” to break up a brawl during a Sparks and Shock game.
He’s now back with the (not so Bad Boy) Pistons doing color commentary.
