Between the joy of Magic and the majesty of Michael was the dark and frightening rise of the Bad Boys. Outside the state of Michigan, you wanted these guys in handcuffs. Never has an NBA team been so easy to detest, what with Rick Mahorn throwing forearms, Dennis Rodman elbows and Bill Laimbeer fits. Worst thing about them? They were a great, championship-winning basketball team.
