Christian Laettner is sorry. Or so he says.

The legendary Duke basketball player -- and the widespread contempt held for him -- was the subject of ESPN's latest 30 for 30 documentary, aptly titled "I Hate Christian Laettner."

Laettner live-tweeted during the premiere on Sunday evening, including a video apology to Aminu Timberlake:

A brief history lesson: In the same game as "The Shot," his epic buzzer beater to win the 1992 NCAA East Regional Final against Kentucky, Laettner stomped on Timberlake's chest.

Timberlake earlier in the weekend tweeted about his participation in the documentary:

There's been no response from Timberlake following Laettner's apology, however, he did retweet Laettner's social media mea culpa. Perhaps he's on the road to forgiving and forgetting?
