Bill Laimbeer to Replace Michael Curry

Bill Laimbeer could possibly be the next in line to replace Michael Curry.

Laimbeer, the former Pistons player who rose to prominence in the organization during the Bad Boys era, resigned as coach of the WNBA's Detroit Shock on June 16. Laimbeer has for years expressed a desire to be an NBA coach.

When he was contacted by The Detroit News on Tuesday and asked about Curry's firing, Laimbeer said, "It's the first I've heard of it. Really, they fired him?"

Laimbeer was asked if he had been contacted by the Pistons about the head coaching position."I've been out pursuing different things," he said. As for his reaction to Curry's firing, Laimbeer said, "I don't have any feelings about it."

As pictured above, Bill Laimbeer has a certain "physical" aspect to his style of basketball.

We may get the "bad boys" Detroit team back again.
