Coaching one of the most badass teams in NBA history can easily turn into a nightmare. However, for Chuck Daly, it became a dream come true. The Bad Boys Pistons of the '80s had a roster of villains like Bill Laimbeer and Dennis Rodman, and sneakier dirty guys like Isiah Thomas. Instead of self-destructing and turning on one another, Daly's players let out their frustrations on opponents. Many loathed those teams but there was no denying that they were damn good. Soundtrack, please!
