The premise behind “The Z Team” on the Olympic Channel is to turn around a struggling athlete or team in one week through the coaching of an Olympian. This week, it’s Christian Laettner’s turn.
As the only member of the squad not in the Hall of Fame, Laettner is often the forgotten member of the 1992 Dream Team. With that said, the all-time Duke great is an Olympic Gold Medalist anyway you slice it.
In Laettner’s episode of “The Z Team,” which airs Tuesday night, the skilled big man will coach up a high school team out of Charlotte. Outside of the linear broadcast – episodes of “The Z Team” are available on the Olympic Channel’s online platforms
