TEAMS: Detroit Pistons
Photo/AP editing Detroit Pistons billionaire owner Tom Gores was harassed at his house Sunday night … when two unidentified men showed up at his doorstep, demanding over a MILLION bucks for the Mormon Church.It’s a bizarre tale — we’re told Tom was specifically targeted by the duo, which tracked him down at his home in L.A.’s exclusive Mulholland Estates, the same gated community where Charlie Sheen lives.

Words were exchanged, but eventually the weirdos took off — leaving behind a package full of papers, one of which demanded more than a million bucks for the Mormon Church.
