University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

A picture for the ages

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, it does. FOX Sports just tweeted this picture of Anthony Davis and Christian Laettner reenacting the Laettner/Aminu Timberlake stomp from 1992.

Stop making me like you, Christian Laettner!

    Now I don’t hate him. I just dislike him a lot.

    Wonder who’s idea this was? If it was Anthony’s I love him even more! I loved hearing all about him yesterday on the Olympics and hearing Kentucky every time! Wonderful (and free) recruiting tool.

    KSR needs to get off laettner’s sack. Every time I see the guy on this site I vomit a little in my mouth.

    Kudos to both AD (for giving BBN what they wanted to see) and Laettner (for trying to make amends) but… I still hate you Laettner.

    That’s great, thanks for sharing. I’d bet it was Laettner’s idea but I still don’t like him. Love AD though. It would take a great deal of world-wide philanthropy for me to ever like a former Duke basketball player.

    I am starting to wonder if Laettner does this stuff because he gets more attention from the BBN than he does from the Dukies. I bet he hasn’t had two posts in a row from a Duke website since the internet was invented. And yes, I still hate him.

    8. You are absolutely correct. I’d only think a little better of Laettner if he let Aminu stomp his a$$. Actually, I’d like to see Feldhaus punch him. That’d make me feel a lot better.

    Fabulous. I can’t believe haters still exist after 20 years. I’ve heard of carrying a grudge before but this is ridiculous. He hit the game winner which is exactly what Sean Woods almost did. Get over it.

    I like to imagine the stomp happening in 2010 with Cousins being the stomping victim. The thought of Laettner’s head being ripped off is really entertaining.

    Why should we like this dude? He’s a former Duke player, that should be enough to never be expected to like him. I can’t think of any former/current Duke, Louisville, Indiana, or North Carolina player that I can say I like. I may not loathe some as much as others, but the whole ‘get over it, it was years ago’ thing is pointless, as people just tend to dislike rivals. Wth has this dude done with his life that should make me say “I really like that Laettner dude”

    #23 seriously? It has nothing to do with time and the fact that 20 years has past. It was the moment and how much it hurt at the time. I was watching in the Haggin hall freshman dorm and it was an absolutely brutal moment that I will never recover from. We have had lots of heartbreaking losses and buzzer beaters since(including Indiana this year) but none of them hurt quite like that. I never hated Cristian Watford for a second and that cost us the chance of an undefeated season. It still hurts whenever I think about that game and I will always hate laettner.

    C’mon guys, you know you love him! He also gives discounts to his Basketball Camp to Kentucky residents… lol. But seriously, he is an awesome guy. I have yet to see him at a bar in Durham where he DIDN’T buy a beer for everyone. The stomp was a little dirty, but it’s the edge and chippiness that made him and those ’91 and ’92 Duke teams so good. LOVE IT!

    The only difference would be Anthony would be thrown out of the game! Iam suprised a ref didn’t jump out and issue the tech and throw Anthony out… dukies for ya
    But all that aside, I like christian for joking about it. But I can NEVER really like him!

    No one’s asking anyone to like Laettner, but seriously, the people who “can’t get over it” need to grow up. 20 yrs ago, and we just got number 8. How many does Duke have?

    Anyone else wonder if AD really even knows what he’s reenacting? Depressing thought of the day: the stomp happened before AD was even born! yikes. This had to have been engineered by Laettner. PR genius for sure.

    I agree with others that the 92 game is history – it is in the past. As much as I wanted to see that group of kids succeed, what happened, happened. Hey, I am living in the present, still savoring #8. As far as Laettner, I would like to think that maybe he has matured and changed over the years. He may have been an arrogant prick during that game, but I personally know people that progressed from being total a-holes at one point in their lives to genuinely good people as they grow up and gain wisdom. Then again, there are certain people in this world who will never change! 😀

    catsforever…you are a piece. What does “get over this” mean? You are telling people you will hate who you want…and then turn around and tell them who to hate and that they are Dukies. You are the guy that gives BBN haters ammo.

    Not a closet “dukie”, been a UK fan since I knew what basketball was. I am, however, an adult, and sporting events that happened 20 years ago don’t continue to ruin my life. catsforever – get out and live a little, maybe you won’t have to cry into your bourbon every night like some scorned lover.

    He was a great sport during the legends game. No animosity toward him whatsoever. Guys, he was just a punky kid at Duke.



  62. NKY Catfan
    2:30 pm July 30, 2012 Permalink

    I gotta say, I kind of like the guy. He doesn’t seem to be short on humility. IMO, people shouldn’t hate him because he played a great game in 92. He did what team leaders should do…step up when their team needs them. As for the Aminu fiasco, it was a little dirty, but c’mon, this past season Teague mastered the “nutcracker”. There’s no telling how many people caught some overly-aggressive Boogie elbows a couple years ago. Bottom line, I’m not condoning dirty play, but I do think having a little edge fuels the competitive fire.

    I was at the legends game (got my “I Hate Laettner” T-shirt there). makes no difference if he is an ok guy and a good sport, he probablly is, but its still fun to “Hate” him.

    Who is worse: Laettner or Bobby Knight? I think Robert Montgomery is much more evil. He didn’t hurt us as badly in one game, but he was, and still is, a lying UK hater.

    When Duke gives back that national championship for the illegal advantage they gained from Laettner’s terrible sportsmanship and the absent foul call, then MAYBE I’ll think about trying to like him. But, right now I can’t see it happening.
