Another popular answer to the dirtiest team in the NBA might be the 90s Knicks, who were kind of like the Bad Boys Pistons except for all the winning. You could probably make a case for at least 10 different Knicks on a list like this, but a guy who earned the nickname Dirty Kurt definitely makes the list. Kurt Thomas was what hockey teams call an enforcer. He had six fouls to his name and he knew how to use them, averaging 3.2 fouls per game for his career.
And like many hockey enforcers, Thomas made an entire career out of it, playing until his jersey number, 40. Thomas threw down in the post and made opponents pay for coming into his lane. And with those Crazy Eyes he had, not many opponents were willing to challenge him.
