Bill Laimbeer – The Most Hated NBA Player Of All Time


Former NBA big man Bill Laimbeer has had a pretty successful NBA career. He is mostly know for his 11-year tenure with the Detroit Pistons, having been one of the infamous ‘Bad Boys’ who won back-to-back NBA championships in 1989 and 1990.

Then, after eliminating the Bulls from the playoffs for three straight years (1988, 1989, and 1990), the Bulls got the upper hand in the 1991 Eastern Conference Finals. Thanks to it being featured on ‘The Last Dance’, a 10-part documentary about Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls, the world also was reminded of Laimbeer, Isiah Thomas and their teammates leaving the court before time expired, without a handshake or any congratulating gesture.

But Laimbeer was one of the dirtiest players to play the game in general, who often took things too far. It seemed as he was intentionally trying to hurt his opponents at times. This style of play has led to him becoming the most hated player of all time. Check it out.
