I watched it in the Tourney thread... I don't even want to click on it again. I really don't know how any human leg can break like that on a routine jump and landing.

That actually made me nauseous. I've never seen anything that bad before.

Already saw that one and Lattimore's. You could see Ware's bone. It was the worst i've ever seen.

Yeah it is the worst in sports history, mainly because that type of injury should NEVER happen in basketball. Infection is always a risk with compound fractures too.

Heard about it. Didn't see it.

Based on the descriptions, don't want to.

Good news, and I'm guessing if there was something more serious underlying it, they would've already found out and not been as definitive about him playing there again:
http://www.usatoday....urgery/2041241/

University of Louisville basketball player Kevin Ware underwent successful surgery Sunday night to repair the gruesome open fracture of his right tibia he suffered during the Cardinals' 85-63 win over Duke in the Midwest Regional final, and he is expected to remain in Indianapolis until at least Tuesday, U of L announced.
Ware had the bone reset, and a rod was inserted into leg during the operation that lasted about two hours. The wound caused by the bone puncturing through his skin in his lower leg was closed.
U of L's late-night release said no timetable for recovery has been set, but the early prognosis from U of L sports medicine director Fred Hina - given right after the game while Ware was in surgery - was that Ware is bound for a lengthy recovery, but the injury is not likely a career-ending one.
