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!
If you have an awful sense of curiosity, you can see the EXTREMELY GRAPHIC video (above)!
With the NFL season just around the corner, one of the big story lines getting a lot of buzz is whether or not Michael Sam, the first openly gay player in the league, will still be on the St. Louis Rams' roster for week 1!
Well the trailblazing footballer definitely has a lot of people rooting for him to succeed, particularly our favorite English muffin Harry Styles!
