NBA Career: In 1992, Laettner was drafted third overall in the NBA Draft, and he played for the Minnesota Timberwolves from 1992 to 1996, followed by the Atlanta Hawks (1996–1999), Detroit Pistons (1999–2000), Dallas Mavericks (2000–2001), Washington Wizards (2001–2004), and Miami Heat (2004–2005). While playing in the NBA, he scored more than 11,000 points, and during his first six seasons, he averaged 16.6 points per game. Christian was chosen for the NBA All-Rookie First Team in 1993, and during his time with the Atlanta Hawks, he played in the 1997 All-Star Game.

Opposing fans have reviled Laettner during his career, and in 2013, he was voted the “Most Hated College Basketball Player” in an ESPN.com poll. In 2016, ESPN made the documentary “I Hate Christian Laettner” for the network’s “30 for 30” series. The documentary was narrated by Rob Lowe, and the film’s description states, “He made perhaps the most dramatic shot in the history of the NCAA basketball tournament. He’s the only player to start in four consecutive Final Fours, and was instrumental in Duke winning two national championships. He had looks, smarts and game. So why has Christian Laettner been disliked so intensely by so many for so long? Maybe it was the time he stomped on the chest of a downed player, or the battles he had with his teammates, or a perceived sense of entitlement. But sometimes, perception isn’t reality.”

Financial Issues: Despite having earned over $60 million in his playing career and having some moderate success as an entrepreneur, in 2012, Laettner and Davis were reportedly $30 million in debt to various creditors.

Personal Life: Christian married Lisa Thibault on September 28, 1996, and they have three children, daughters Summer and Sophie and son Tor. Lisa filed for divorce in 2015.
