Tough Break Again For Kevin Ware
Kevin Ware’s Leg Break Loses Gruesome Basketball Photo Contest
Louisville’s basketball player Kevin Ware’s broken right leg sent team mates to their knees and spectators writhing. Ware’s broken leg, reminiscent of professional football quarterback Joe Theisman’s severe leg break, will not win the 2013 Gruesome Basketball Photo Award.

“Nope, not even close,” said Darvin Davies of the Great Grotesque Basketball Sports Photo Foundation in Naismith, Indiana. “I’m not saying that Kevin’s broken leg isn’t grotesque in a kind of mild manored way, but it doesn’t compare to the two basketball players at the site of a suicide bombing during a scratch game in Baghdad in February,” said Davies.Davies said the Ware’s break was nearly 5 points beneath the two leading contenders for this year’s $10,000 photo prize.
