"I'm still glad that we didn't shake their hands. They were whiners and criers. Piss on them."
-"Mr. Sportsmanship" Bill Laimbeer, referring to how he and the other Detroit Pistons starters marched off the court without shaking hands or offering congratulations
after being swept by the Chicago Bulls in the 1991 Eastern Conference Finals. If you're wondering why the Pistons hired Celtics legend Dave Cowens as an assistant coach instead of Laimbeer -- who was named the 2003 WNBA Coach of the Year and led the Detroit Shock to two league titles -- that's probably a good reason why. That and the fact that he's pure, dag nasty evil.Bill Laimbeer: Proud member of the All-Asshole Team
