The Pittsburgh Pythons are the worst team in the NBA.
Most of the players think the reason why they are in the cellar is because
Moses Guthrie who they feel is monopolizing the spotlight. So when they walk out,
the towel boy, Tyronne decides to consult with an astrologist, Mona.
They in turn decide to hold open tryouts and they only select players who are born
under the same zodiac sign as Guthrie, Pisces. And what they get are some weirdos
but they play together, they are phenomenal. When they start winning the owner decides
to rename the team the Pisces.
