    This saddens me. I dealt with Mahorn some when he was in college and when he was the Wizards. Seemed like a good guy - if he didn't remember me from our previous dealings, he at least acted like he did.

    Doesn't sadden me. He should have paid his taxes. Mahorn had it made and pissed his money away. Insert name of hundreds of former athletes and you have the same story.

    I'm wondering if he lied about the ring>

    I am surprised he only earned $7 million in the NBA, and yes, I realize only should be in quotation marks. But that's not much compared to what players, even scrubs, would make in a 10-year career today. I thought I saw him on NBA TV last night as a studio commentator for the WNBA.

    This has been out for some time now (well around here anyway).

    He was the coach of the WNBA Detroit Shock after Laimbeer stepped down, but obviously lost that gig when they moved to Tulsa.

    Nice pull. Irwin R. Shyster (aka Mike Rotunda) lived near one of my old newspaper offices. Ran a used car lot, one of those buy-here/pay-here joints where you could actually picture him like the photo, collecting from stiffs at the end of every month. But he was very friendly and was always happy to talk wrestling.
