Christian Laettner Apology: Duke Alum Sorry for 1992 Timberlake Stomp

By    |   Monday, 16 Mar 2015 03:14 PM

More than 20 years after Duke’s Christian Laettner stomped on Aminu Timberlake during the 1992 NCAA East Regional Final against Kentucky, the man still known as one of the most disliked college basketball players in history offered an apology.

The former Duke star live tweeted Sunday’s ESPN documentary titled, “I Hate Christian Laettner.”



Laettner peppered Twitter with his commentary, all with the #IHateChristianLaettner hash tag, throughout the night.



ESPN interviewed a handful of people about the famous stomp, and about Laettner’s game in general. Many talked about how Timberlake laughed off the stomp at the time, and noted that if Laettner had stomped any other Kentucky player, it likely would have ended ina brawl.

The show, and possibly Laettner’s tweets, seemed to make people think twice about their attitudes toward the former basketball star. 




Duke ultimately won that 1992 game against Kentucky — and a Final Four berth — after Laettner's last-second jump shot.
