It was an interesting film. Christian Laettner was right before my time so I never formed an opinion of him.

I thought it was pretty interesting. I like him and respect him. Love is a bit of a stretch though.

I didn't mind him too much.

The team I really hated was UNLV, and they beat them, so...

In retrospect, the shot he hit versus Kentucky was really cool.

Big fan of his growing up. I'll never forget the Kentucky game as long as I live or get Alzheimer's.

I missed that 30 for 30. Any ideas where I can catch it?

I wasn't a fan of Laettner, but I hated Duke way more than I hated Christian. They should have made this doc about Duke hate, not Laettner hate.

That show just gave more evidence of why people around the world hate Christians. I think Laettner is the reason.

Back when he was playing at Duke, I hated Christian Laettner. I had no idea why, because I didn't particularly hate Duke. At the time, it just seemed like, if you weren't a Duke fan, you were required to hate Laettner. After he left Duke, I was pretty indifferent about him. After watching that documentary, I respect him.

They will replay it quite a bit. Search it on your dvr and record it. Nice trip down memory lane.

It was fun listening to all the whipper snappers that didn't really understand who or what he was fully last night on Twitter.

As a CBB fan he had a helluva career. As a Carolina fan I think he's a jackass.

The show seem to intimate that he bullied his teammates and was arrogant...

To listen to him now he seems to be merely petulant.........but with a dashing slice of arrogance added in

Just watched the 30 For 30 and really enjoyed it. Growing up in LA I was a huge Duke fan because of Laettner. I played ball with predominantly black kids and learned how to trash talk and not take shit from playing with them. That's why I always respected Laettner. He didn't back down from anyone or any challenge. He's my favorite college player of all time.

The only thing worse than Christian Laettner was Bobby Hurley.

No offense Douggie. I have my personal Michigan - Duke rivalry reasons. Damn Wolverine killer.

Laettner is one of the greatest college players that ever lived. He is thee best in my mind. Hurley was a product of Laettner just like most of them were besides Grant Hill.
