Leave it up to Christian Laettner to pour salt on the wounds of Kentucky fans following the Wildcats’ painful last-second loss to North Carolina on Sunday.

The morning after UNC sophomore Luke Maye broke Kentucky’s heart by draining a game-winning jumper to send the Tar Heels to the Final Four, the former Duke star posted a funny tweet that reminded everyone why he remains one of college basketball’s all-time villains.

Of course Laettner handed Kentucky the same fate 25 years ago when he swished the most iconic shot in the history of college hoops — a game-winner in overtime to earn Duke a berth in the Final Four — while wearing the No. 32.

It’s even better that Laettner was able to temporarily put the Duke-North Carolina rivalry aside and celebrate a UNC player all for the sake of taking a shot (no pun intended) at the Wildcats’ fan base.

The responses to Laettner’s tweet will certainly be entertaining, because as we all know — everyone hates Christian Laettner.
