When you were watching NBA TV’s “The Dream Team,” you might have found yourself wondering the same thing I was — did Christian Laettner ever even get in a game? I certainly didn’t remember him playing from my childhood, and the film only showed him on the sidelines and/or kicking water gleefully. But the Dream Team also won every game by 40ish points, so it could go either way.
As it turns out, he did play in some Olympic games and he even registered some legitimate highlights. Sure, they only last 25 seconds out of 14 40-minute games (including the qualifying Tournament of the Americas), but still.
