In a word, No.

How about the likes of Lew Alcindor or Bill Walton?

So you're penalizing Laettner because he wasn't in Airplane?

I'd take Walton & Alcindor over Laettner, no question...but it doesn't help Laettner's case that his NBA career was pretty underwhelming.

Wow I looked it up, I had no idea how good Kareem's college #'s were.

Pistol Pete has to be on a list of greatest college players ever. Dude averaged like 45 a game over his three year career.

I'd have to go with the NFL playoff weekends myself, which you neglected to mention.

But the tournament isn't far behind.

Here's something for you guys to ponder...is Christian Laettner the greatest college player ever? I know everybody hates the guy, I know I do, that Kentucky shot wasn't his only dagger...not to mention he did this:

But he also didn't miss a shot in that game, amazing.
Yes, it is the greatest two days of sports. It's the only thing I absolutely love even if no team I care about is involved.

My father thinks Laettner is the best ever (he hates Duke, too, mostly thanks to Coach K). I think he's up there, but probably not the best.

Let's go Illini. Make some Hilltoppers bleed tonight. God I hope I'm still coherent at 8:45 so I can actually watch the game.

this is the first time i've ever taken all 4 #1 seeds to the final four. i'm kinda disgusted with myself, but i'm more disgusted with the tournament committee for forcing me to do it.

I agree that the opening round of the NCAA tourney is the best two days in sports. I got to spend it in Vegas a few years back and it was so awesome! It is just perfect because there are games constantly from 9:30 am to 10pm. Perfect for those of us on the left coast!

Awww, but I love the Hilltoppers mascot. It's a big orange blob, what is there not to like?

I've actually got the Hilltoppers in the Sweet. Sorry, Gaffer.

Memphis struggling with CS Northridge has me feeling better about my decision to have them spanked by Mizzou.

Gus is calling the ND State/KU tilt. If the Bison pull off the huge upset, expect the greatest call in sports history.

Also, the tournament has just been elevated a notch with the triumphant return of "THIS IS OURRRR COUNTRY."

This CSNorthridge-Memphis game is kind of exciting.

Ugh. I was hoping we'd heard the last of that.
