Kevin Ware Rumors

Kevin Ware: “After surgery that night, I was knocked out. I didn’t wake up until the middle of the night or the early morning. When I woke in the hospital bed, everything was foggy. I don’t remember anybody else being in the room — I was still out of it. All I remember is opening my eyes and looking over at the table next to my bed and seeing the Final Four trophy. It felt like a dream, but I knew I wasn’t dreaming. Then I just smiled and rolled over and went back to sleep.”
Storyline: Kevin Ware Health
Kevin Ware: “On campus, I was a celebrity in my own right. That didn’t die down. I was getting mobbed by people at the mall and everywhere else. And all anybody wanted to talk about was my leg. It’s like I wasn’t Kevin Ware, the basketball player, anymore. I was Kevin Ware, the guy who broke his leg. After a while, it really started to bother me — all the attention, people wanting to talk to me everywhere I went. I had to start sneaking around campus, taking back ways to classes or the gym. I didn’t realize the impact that my injury had had on other people or on my status on campus. I spent most of my time in my room watching Netflix, avoiding all the fuss.”
Kevin Ware: “I was Kevin Ware, the basketball player. Then I was Kevin Ware, the guy who broke his leg. Now I’m working hard to be Kevin Ware, the professional basketball player. And whether that happens in the NBA or somewhere internationally, I’ll always be proud that I gave everything I had to Louisville, and I gave everything I had to Georgia State. Now, I’m ready to give everything I have to my next team — wherever that may be. That’s the next step for me as I try to give people something else to remember me for besides my injury.”
Other players have suffered serious injuries like Bronson Kessinger or Paul George. When you see something like that, I’m guessing you’re feeling it much more than somebody that hasn’t been through that. Like some kind of connection with that person. Kevin Ware: Definitely. When Paul George suffered his injury, I was one of the first people he reached out to, to ask me about the whole process. That was kind of like ‘Wow, somebody I look up to, one of my favorite players, reached out to me’. That was a dream come true when you think about it. You’re a kid in college and you just have to appreciate it.
