The Dirtiest Players in NBA History

1. Bill Laimbeer

Team(s): Cavs, Pistons
Stats: 12.9 PPG, 9.7 RPG, 2.0 APG, 3.4 PFPG
Dirty Highlights

As the only white dude to start on the Pistons' "Bad Boys" squad of the '80s, Laimbeer used a combination of aggressive elbows, dirty play, and Oscar-worthy flops to become one of the league's most hated players. In 1991, his tactics even led Nintendo to develop Bill Laimbeer's Combat Basketball, a science-fiction basketball game staged in the year 2030. All you need to know about the game is that there are no refs, there are no fouls, and the use of weapons is perfectly legal. A public relations dream come true.
