Ex-Detroit Pistons Bill Laimbeer, Dennis Rodman and Rasheed Wallace featured in complex.com’s list of The 50 Dirtiest Players In Sports History

Bill Laimbeer, Dennis Rodman and Rasheed Wallace were featured in complex.com’s list of The 50 Dirtiest Players In Sports History (hat tip: Detroit Free Press).

Each entry in complex.com’s list features an explanation and a video. I’ll relay their explanations, but instead of posting the same video, I’ve selected completely biased alternatives that paint these players, whom I like, in much better lights.

Complex on Bill Laimbeer:

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. Yeah, us neither.
