It seemed like a simple play, Kevin Ware jumped to contest a shot. But after landing with the full weight of his body on his leg, the leg snapped. The first initial replays showed the bones poking through the skin of Ware, with him writhing in agony. After two replays, CBS decided not to show it anymore, and rightfully so. It was too hurtful towards his family to do so.
In comparison, the injury to Shaun Livingston a few years ago was tough to watch, but this injury was almost impossible to fathom even happening. How the Louisville players continued playing when even jumping seemed like a fearful act is a testament to their grit, and one of the reasons why they are now on their way to the Final Four in Atlanta. Fittingly, Ware is from Atlanta, and will be there to greet his teammates. But hopefully, we never see an injury like this ever again.
