Christian Laettner just couldn’t help himself, trolls Kentucky by embracing Luke Maye

So far today, it seems the national media is really going with this “Luke Maye is the new Christian Laettner” narrative, which is entirely unfair to Maye because he doesn’t seem like a pretentious punk. Sure, both Laettner and Maye hit heartbreaking last-second shots to beat the Cats, and, wow, isn’t a coincidence that both wore the #32 and the shots happened 25 years apart, but other than that, whatever. Laettner further proved my point today when he embraced Maye on Twitter, trolling the #BBN as only he can do:

Hard to believe that a few years ago, I was starting to not hate him so much.

    What will the Dukies say when they learn Laettner is embracing their most hated rival?

    Luke Maye will be the local UNC “legend” selling cars or insurance around Chapel Hill.

      I see what u did there I think unless I’m making things to complicated. I went to NC a few months back and they had Cheerwine, a soft drink, and it says local legends on it, encouraging local businesses, shops, and companies to be recognized. I found it quite humerous, even if you weren’t meaning that.

    Maybe it’d be a good idea to NOT do Christian Laettner the favor of writing about whatever irrelevant thing he tweets out about a game he and Duke had nothing to do with. Every “story” like this just garners him more followers on Twitter. Maybe write about something else?

    Christian Laettner likes Nickelback.

    Duke lost in the second round. And now he is rooting for their rival?! Pathetic.

    Jacka$$ stomps a guy laying on the ground….that makes him a coward in my book.
    Should have taken a kick to the knee.

    Come on, that was funny. You have got to have a sense of humor about this at this point.

      What would be funny is if he took a front-kick to the knee and limped the rest of his life.
      Ha Ha Ha Ha…funny.

    No way that unc vs duke is college basketball’s greatest rivalry. I couldn’t imagine a former card or cat congratulating one another

      You do realize we have a former Louisville player as an assistant coach right? Payne is a former card and he congratulates (and coaches) our guys regularly.

      Payne coaches for uk now…huge difference. If laettner were a unc coach I could understand it

    The refs had a game plan to stop Kentucky’s strength and called it well.

    Dude is such a douche that his middle name is Massengill – nick name Disposable. He may want to focus his attentions on a different 32 – like about $32 million to cover just some of his bad business debt. People is glass houses shouldn’t throw empty douche containers….
