12. Christian Laettner

Christian Laettner is one of the most decorated college basketball players of all time, and his success with the Duke Blue Devils led to him being selected to play on the 1992 U.S.A. men’s basketball team… yes, I still can’t believe it to this day. Unfortunately, his mammoth success in college did not carry over into the NBA. That is not to say Laettner was a scrub in the league; he was not. He made an All-Star game, and averaged 12.8 points and 6.7 rebounds over the course of 13 seasons in the league but this amounts to nothing compared to his days in Duke blue and white. Laettner will simply always be remembered for the incredible last-second shot that he hit in the Final Four when he caught a full-court pass from Grant Hill, pivoted, and nailed a buzzer-beating jumper to beat the Kentucky Wildcats. He just won’t be remembered for his 1 All-Star selection during his NBA days, that’s a given.
