If we’re using superheroes as metaphors for members of the Duke University basketball team in the early 1990’s, Christian Laettner was undoubtedly Batman, and Bobby Hurley was Robin. Hurley was an All-American in 1993, leading to the Sacramento Kings taking him with the 7th overall pick in the 1993 NBA Draft. But early in his rookie year, Hurley was involved in a terrible car accident, and because he wasn’t wearing a seatbelt, he was thrown from the car and suffered life-threatening injuries.
While he recovered, he wasn’t anywhere near the same basketball player again. After retiring, Hurley dabbled in horse racing (he still owns a stable) before turning to coaching. He worked his way up the ranks, and currently is the head coach of basketball at Arizona State University.
