The 50 Dirtiest Athletes in Sports History

11. Bill Laimbeer

Sport: Basketball
Career: 1980-1993
Dirty Highlights

As the only white dude starting on the Pistons' "Bad Boys" squad of the 1980s, Laimbeer used a combination of aggressive elbows, dirty play, and Oscar-worthy flopping to become one of the league's most hated players. In 1991, his aggressive tactics even led Nintendo to develop Bill Laimbeer's Combat Basketball, a science-fiction basketball game staged in the year 2030. It's ironic that Bill has become a successful WNBA coach.
