Laimbeer will - no doubt show these young post players how to elbow-push-bully and intimidate the opposing players in a non stop fashion. That's what I remember about his playing days with the Pistons. There will be no whimps on the team with him around. He was nasty, but like him or not, he was a winner who knew how to get the job done. Go Bill! Go T-Wolves!

And he played a Sleestak on the original Saturday morning show, "Land of the Lost".

I remember Lambeer killing teams with outside shooting. The guy could push and shove, but he could also nail jump shots. His reputation of being a mean guy is exaggerated. Final point: Kevin Love is a much better athlete than Lambeer ever was.

Good luck Lam. Hopefully for us you'll find yourself on the Detroit coaching staff someday.
