Basketball isn't one of those sports that everyone assumes is super dangerous. It isn't like NASCAR, and it isn't contact-related like football. And still, things like this happen!
Kevin Ware of Louisville suffered one of the most horrific injuries in basketball we've ever seen. He was landing after contesting a shot when he shattered his lower leg, and his shin shot out of his skin and flesh.
We're not even being one ounce dramatic here!
The game was stopped, obvs! Apparently one of the only things Kevin was saying was something about winning the game to his team — now THAT's dedication!
CBS decided to stop showing replays of the injury after showing it twice, and Kevin has since had emergency surgery. We hope he gets better soon!
