Thou Shalt Not Take Laettner’s Name in Vain

The following comment was posted recently in response to my prediction about Lee Melchionni:

“i’m not sure where you are going with these duke comments! the next laettner??? just b/c he’s white? i don’t see the correlation. that’s like saying jamal boyken is the next grant hill or shane battier. or better yet- mike drum is the next jj redick. haha, there ya go. GO DUKE:)”

I didn’t mean to disparage the living Duke legend Christian Laettner in making this comparison. God forbid! My interpretation of my prediction is this: Laettner = best days on a basketball court were in college.

Though both are pretty white. Let’s only hope that Melchionni doesn’t try to grow a beard a la Laettner.

Re JJ Redick: he is the next Brent Barry. Make of that what you will.
