Christian Laettner might want to make a play for another piece of Spectrum history. Comcast-Spectacor, which owns the 76ers and the Flyers, is putting up for auction panels of the court where Laettner hit his famous shot. Laettner's basket at the buzzer in the 1992 NCAA tournament helped Duke beat Kentucky 104-103 and sent the Blue Devils into the Final Four.

The three-panel top of the free-throw line where Laettner launched his historic buzzer beater is available by calling 215-952-5656. A portion of the proceeds benefit the Comcast-Spectacor Foundation.

Fans can register at RememberTheSpectrum.com for a chance to purchase pieces of the rest of the court. The Spectrum is set for demolition at the end of this year.
