25. Christian Laettner: 1992, Pick #3
Still perhaps the greatest — and most hated — college basketball players in NCAA history, Christian Laettner was something of a “tag along” amongst the group of Hall of Fame NBA players that comprised the original 1992 Dream Team.
After a mostly forgettable 14-year career in the NBA of his own, Laettner partnered with former Duke University teammate Brian Davis to pursue several business ventures, including a failed attempt to buy the Memphis Grizzlies.
In 2015, ESPN’s 30 for 30 documentary series did an episode titled “I Hate Christian Laettner,” documenting how polarizing of a player he was while at Duke University.
