fuck. i had totally forgot it's bracket time!

yes.

and fuck xtian laettner. i was always torn about duke b/c though i'm a michigan fan i felt some kinda way about ppl hating on duke players for being smart. and since i wasn't a street kid and i was always in the smrt kid classes i related to the duke players more than the fab 5. i wanted to see the fab 5 win mostly b/c of my familial connections (born on campus to 2 students). but then the anti-duke trash talk had me defending duke, meanwhile the pro-duke trash talk had me siding w/the fab 5.

then there was xtian - i said 'fuck xtian'...i left off the 'i wanted to...' part. b/c back then i did but i wasn't ready to embrace that yet.

anyway, i was torn back then.

fuck you.

when in fact,Grant Hill was the one that actually fit the mold best.

Laettner made a point of how they all came from blue collar backgrounds
yet Hill was the only one with an actual uppity upbringing, yet he somewhow avoided that tag

>not sure how anyone could hate Grant Hill tho...

I didn't even know that. I knew about Hurley, but not Laettner. That old footage of him was absolutely fascinating to see. You can see him getting shaped into the kid he'd become.

Now I rode for the Fab Five against everyone else but I was Duke fan

It was mostly because of Grant Hill and Thomas Hill

But I swear on everything I couldnt stand Christian Laettner so I get it.

In response to Reply # 14


  

          

In the collective consciousness of America, the Fab 5 left a much more indelible impression than the teams that beat them in the Finals.

obviously 92 Duke >>> 93 UNC

But its true. No one gives a fuck about them and the Fab 5 are still compelling 20+ years later.

I don't know those guys, so I can't say for sure, but I'm 99% sure that they'd rather have the rings. Just a guess.

But we're obviously not going to agree on this, me being a Duke fan and you being a UM fan, so no need to parse through it.

In response to Reply # 38


  

          

I think, when a documentary stirs that pot back up and empowers myriads of stupid people to call him an Uncle Tom all over again, it's hard to blame dude for wanting to respond.

Though I agree that there's no "winning" in responding to some bullshit like that.

(It also didn't help that it became "the hot button topic" on ESPN the days following the documentary. Made it an even bigger "discussion" than a teenager's dumb namecalling twenty years ago justified. Who knows if it even would have been anything without ESPN pumping it into their media cycle every hour for that week?)

That's why we were talking about Grant Hill responding.

This is the second time you've seemed to think I don't know what's being discussed here, lol. That's odd.

and most of the 'hate' they get is largely about Duke in general. most likely they embrace that considering how successful Duke has been. i doubt the 'hate' bothers them much if at all.

fuck you.

You still want love from college basketball fans in general. Especially when you have that type of success in college.

God, he was an asshole. Still is. But he's a special brand of asshole who got exactly the right coach for him and did something that no one is likely to ever do again. You're not going to have anyone beat those Games Played/Points Scored records in the NCAA Tourney.

and even then he wasn't the one who shit his pants :/

I still say no Grant, no titles. But Laettner was a monster.

I feel like if Chris Webber had stayed all 4 yrs, he may have got him on those records, but ain't no way in hell that was happening.

Take the second or third best player off any title team and they probably don't win shit. It doesn't even have to be a guy as good as Hill. Think Cuse would have won without Hakeem Warrick or Gerry McNamara? I don't.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

but cant front, I came to the realization last night that Laettner is
prolly the best college player of the last 30 yrs.. no other player is more accomplished and instrumental to team success than he was.

there were obviously more talented players but none got his total pedigree.

this yr HARVARD is in the tourney. so fuck Duke. and i'm not a Harvard fan (Yale is my Ivy squad) but they're one of the ultimate smart kid schools so i can support them...until they're eliminated. lol

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Like it was pointed out in the doc, u just got tired of seeing them all the time. While Laettner was a great college player, I never thought he would be a great pro, so that Dream Team shyt made the hate stronger.

I hated Hurley before Duke tho, my ex went to the sister school to St. Anthony's and she used to kick it with him and Terry Dehere. I was sick of them and they both ended up at school's that I didn't like; Duke and Seton Hall.

I'll always hate that team because the refs would turn a blind eye to all there shitty fouls. They never got called for charges and they flopped like LeBron in a soccer uniform.


All my hate was rewarded years later tho when Eric Maynor hit them with the dagger

hated the fact that they let him on the 92 Olympic Dream Team that was a joke

but him and hurley seem like some smug ass bastards

i was glad when they got smoked in the 90 championship game by grandmama and em and greg anthony was shaking hurley so bad he had to go into the locker room with stomach problems

they always got that Boston Celtic, cant do no wrong treatment by the media and that made alot of ppl hate them even more

I think the main point of the doc was that a. most of the stuff you hated about him wasn't really true / about him.

and b. you hated him cuz he was KILLING your squad.

at least, those things were true for me. dude was a beast in college, he didn't have a terrible pro career, just not a standout one.

Sprewell is such a random name to throw out.

What is the story behind the Sprewell hate? "How do I take care of my family?"

It cant be choking a coach because 50% of fans want to choke their bosses.

Duke hater....Hated Laettner, Coach K, hated Bobby H., and their snotty ass student body...

Didn't matter if C.L. was really a working class athlete. Dude got away with a lot of bullshit because he was good, white and played for Duke.

Being from the Chi my college teams growing up were Depaul and Illinois. But my ass was doing the Praise Dance when UNLV was putting an ass whipping on Duke...

GOAT of his era......long live Prince.....God is alive....

did Christian Laettner

What a supreme asshole he was

but


I could NEVER front on his career or him as a player

It sounds funny to me that I'm even abt to type this...but it's true w/o question that he had a better college career than the Michael Jordan

This dude is the singularly the reason why most ppl have come to hate Dook.

I still think abt he got away w/stomping that UK player in the chess...and didn't even so much as get a tech for it. (John Thompson was livid after that game because he said had that been Alonzo Mourning he would've been gone for the entire tournament)

But in truth, it's players like Laettner who made the college game what it was in the most competitive era in ncaa history. Nowadays you don't have that anymore because players don't stick around long enough for you to get familiar w/them.
