Christian Laettner Coaching At Hoops Camp (Video)

Christian Laettner is one of the most accomplished college basketball players of all time. Laettner attended Duke from 1988-1992. During his time in Durham, the Western New York native played in four Final Fours, three NCAA Championship Games and won two national titles (1991, 1992). In 1992, Laettner hit arguably the most famous shot in NCAA history, when his buzzer-beater beat Kentucky, in the East Region Final at Philadelphia.

The summer after his second NCAA championship, Laettner won a gold medal with the original Dream Team, during the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, Spain. Laettner went on to have a solid NBA career, playing 13 seasons with six teams.

Laettner's time in the NBA was not anywhere near as spectacular as his college days. As a result, the now 45-year-old is far more remembered for his time at Duke. With the 2015 NCAA Tournament in full gear, Laettner has been in the news due to this commercial with other star college basketball players, as well as the airing of a new ESPN 30 for 30 documentary titled “ I Hate Christian Laettner.”

This past Saturday, was on hand as Laettner, along with the team that originally drafted him, the Timberwolves, hosted a basketball camp at a middle school in a Minneapolis suburb. Above is original video showing Laettner running drills and teaching young kids basketball fundamentals.

This time of year, Laettner and his shot will always be remembered.
