Former NBA player Christian Laettner Trolls Kentucky Fan Base with Tweet

Former NBA player Christian Laettner revels in being the villian.

As many know, Laettner starred for Duke in the late ’80’s/early ’90’s. His brashness — coupled with his immense ability on the court — often made him a target with opposing fans. While some players would denounce the hate, Laettner welcomed it.

He’s most known for his unbelievable last-minute shot in the regional final versus Kentucky. Hauling in a baseball pass from teammate Grant Hill, Laettner nailed a turnaround jumper with no time remaining to beat the Wildcats in overtime by a score of 104-103.

It was 25 years ago this week that Laettner hit the shot — which has gone down as one of the best moments in college basketball history up to this point.

This past weekend, another No. 32 — North Carolina forward Luke Maye — nailed a last-second shot (also in the regional final) to beat Kentucky. Taking to Twitter, Laettner offered his congratulations…as well as a parting shot to Big Blue Nation:

While no vitriol was intended with the Tweet, the slight dig certainly won’t sit well with any Kentucky supporters — particularly since it came from Laettner.
