After the Louisville Cardinals star Kevin Wareshattered his lower leg during Sunday’s NCAA Midwest Regional final, he's been resting up because, well, there's not much else he can do!
However, considering that this is a very tough time in the college hooper's life, he doesn't want to be alone through his healing process, so he got a CUTEz pup, which he named Scar, to help him get better.
David Letterman is pretty quick to nab hot-in-the-news peeps for his legendary Top 10 lists, and this week he grabbed University of Louisville's point guard, Kevin Ware!
If you remember (you've been having nightmares for the past week about it, don't lie!), Kevin was the one who broke his leg during the Midwest Regional final against Duke, shattering his shin so hard that it burst out of his skin. Now, he's everywhere talking about it, and even got to present David Letterman‘s Top Ten List Thursday, detailing the ten thoughts that ran through his mind when his leg exploded (above)!
It's gross, yeah, but his sense of humor and resiliency is amazeballs! Check it out!
Despite snapping his leg in two at the shin and having a good portion of the bone straight up chilling on the outside of his skin, Kevin says he didn't feel any pain, and couldn't believe his eyes when he saw those six inches of bone saying hello to him in full view!
After the Louisville Cardinal star shattered his lower leg and went into emergency surgery during Sunday’s NCAA Midwest Regional final, everyone and their mom most likely thought that Ware would NEVER step foot on a basketball court again, but according to the co-chief of sports medicine at Mount Sinai Medical Center, Dr. Glashow… he will hoop again, and will even perform at the same level of excellence that he did before the injury!!
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)!
