THE BAD GUY: Bill Laimbeer
COMPLEX SAYS: The Bad Boys. Really, what else needs to be said? The cleanest thing about this squad was Isiah Thomas' Kool-Aid smile, and even that couldn't hide all the grimey tactics he and his cohorts used. Two of the dirtiest players of all time in Bill Laimbeer and Dennis Rodman, along with Rick Mahorn, made sure anyone trying to enter the paint would have hell to pay. In today's soft modern league half the starting squad would foul out before halftime, but back in the late '80s it led to back-to-back titles and recognition as the only team that beat MJ's Bulls, Magic's Lakers, and Larry Bird's Celtics in the playoffs. Bad boys for real. Take that, take that. (copyright Puff Daddy)
