I Hate Christian Laettner review

The latest ESPN 30 for 30 film/episode is I Hate Christian Laettner. Christian was a forward at Duke in the 1990s, including the back to back championship teams. Duke rose to basketball prominence in the 1980s but rose to greater successes during Laettner’s time there. Christian was a great college player and, according to some people, a borderline dirty player.

It is an interesting episode but not of the best of the series. I found it pretty interesting even as a casual college basketball fan.  Narration by Rob Lowe is good.  I am not sure what keeps this episode from being great.

I would have liked a bit more detail about his pro career .  As great of a college player as he was, Laettner bounced around a lot. Also a bit more about his experience on the Dream Team would have been nice.
