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 they feel Moses Guthrie (Julius Winfield Erving II) is monopolizing the spotlight. So when they walk out, the towel boy, Tyrone Millman (James Bond III) decides to consult with an astrologist, Mona Mondieu (Stockard Channing). He goes to the owner and suggests they get players who are born under the same zodiac sign as Guthrie, Pisces. So they hold tryouts and they choose some weirdos, but when they play together, they are phenomenal. When they start winning, the owner decides to rename the team the "Pisces".
