During an appearance on the fashion podcast Throwing Fits, show host James Harris asked JJ Redick where he ranked all-time in most hated college basketball players. Although the longtime NBA veteran believes he may have improved his standing since he was a collegian, he still said he ranked “top 3” in that conversation. The podcast’s co-host, Lawrence Schlossman, asked if the other two were Grayson Allen and Christian Laettner. Redick agreed.
Grant Hill: “I had no idea how big it was at the time. I’m 19 years old. I could barely process 20 days, let alone 25 years. I didn’t really appreciate it until I got into the NBA and I’m watching March Madness as a spectator. I’m sitting in my hotel room, and they’re showing Michael Jordan in 1982, the Georgetown-Villanova game in 1985 and Dereck Whittenburg’s shot against Houston and us. And then I was like, ‘Wow.’ This is something that might be playing for years.”

Scottie Pippen and his wife are FURIOUS at Christian Laettner — claiming he still hasn’t paid them back the hundreds of thousands of dollars he owes them … and they want to collect, NOW. Around 2007, Pippen invested a ton of money with Laettner and his partners to buy a stake in the Memphis Grizzlies … but when the deal fizzled, he never got his money back.
