Pitino's worst nightmare

Nichols School and Duke legend Christian Laettner taped a commericial Thursday with Rick Pitino for Vitamin Water. Laettner plays Pitino's next door neighbor. Remember it was Laettner who made all 10 of his field goals including the game winning as time expired to lift Duke by Kentucky in the 1992 East Regional.

"My part was very small," Pitino said. "I'm his next-door neighbor.
Imagine waking up in the morning and getting your newspaper and
Christian Laettner is your next-door neighbor. It was fun. It's going to be a great commercial."
