Bully for you

I didn’t expect the ESPN documentary I Hate Christian Laettner to make me like the guy.

It’s a movie, not a miracle.

But unlike a movie plot, Laettner’s story exhibits no signs of growth or learning over the past two decades. In his interview, he seems as much of an arrogant bully now as he was 20 years ago.

What did surprise me was not only  Coach K’s acceptance of his behavior but also his decision to let Laettner have ‘free reign’ to bully others — not the best message to send.

I guess winning was more important than how they won.

I’m glad we currently have teams in college basketball who can win the right way…and I still hate Christian Laettner.
