His legacy is tainted (and justifiably so) by his status as the baddest of the Detroit Pistons Bad Boys, but cheap shots aside, Bill Laimbeer was one of the best players in the NBA during the '80s. A nimble big man whose sweet jumper belied his decidedly unsweet post game, Laimbeer averaged a double-double playing every single game of the 1982-83 through 1987-88 seasons. He averaged close to a double-double (12 and 9.7) in 113 career playoff games. And, needless to say, he was adept at the dirty work.
