CAUTION UNC AND KENTUCKY FANS. If Rick Pitino doesn’t have you on major barf alert, these photos should do the trick.

Before the term “haters” was used to describe those who couldn’t abide the sight of J.J. Redick or Greg Paulus, there were legions of still-uncleverly-named “haters” of Duke’s Christian Laettner. He was disliked in the ACC for a variety of reasons, but his last second shot to beat the Wildcats elevated him to “most wanted” status in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

Laettner was a member of the 1992 Men's Olympic Basketball "Dream Team" which was enshrined into the U.S. Olympic Hall Fame on August 12, 2009 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois.

So much for the whole “gay” thing…
