Christian Laettner Apologizes For ‘The Stomp’ [Video]
Better 23 years late than never?
Christian Laettner has finally apologized for "The Stomp."
During Sunday night's airing of ESPN's latest 30 for 30 documentary, I Hate Christian Laettner, the former Duke University star issued a video apology on Twitter.
And if you watched the documentary, you may have noticed some ex-Michigan Wolverines getting their shots in on Laettner.
In an NCAA tournament game in 1992, Laettner's Duke Blue Devils were in a tough game against the Kentucky Wildcats, and Laettner stomped on the chest of UK's Aminu Timberlake. Wildcat fans were incensed because, though he received a technical foul, Laettner wasn't thrown out of the game. He later made the game-winning buzzer-beating shot.
While the show was still on, Laennter made a video directed at Timberlake, apologizing for the incident.
He said: "Hey Aminu, some say I had the perfect game against you guys, but I made a mistake when I stepped on you. I'm sorry."
The 30 for 30 documentary was highly entertaining and featured this segment about Michigan's Fab Five, remembering perhaps not so fondly their loss to Duke in the 1991 finals.
