From the back of the box
In the 1980's and 1990's, there was a legendary rough and tough bad boy of basketball. His name was Bill Laimbeer. Unfortunately, the league didn't like his style of playing, so they forced him to retire.
Now the year is 2030 and Bill Laimbeer has resurfaced as commissioner of the basketball league. He wants to get back at those people who made him retire, and play ball his style.
He's fired all the refs and eliminated all fouls. The players are armored, and the crowd throws weapons and mines on the court.
"This is basketball my way." explains Laimbeer. "No wimps, no wussies! It's not just basketball, it's Combat Basketball!"
