Louisville Cardinals bench warmer Kevin Ware medically cleared

I am not saying whether you should or you shouldn’t care. I’m just saying it isn’t really important. However, America’s favorite bench warmer, Kevin Ware, will be cleared to go all-out in practice by the end of the month according to Rick Pitino.

Ware, who famously injured himself during Louisville’s title run last season, has become a darling among casual college basketball fans. This is mostly because of the gruesome injury Ware suffered and has to do a little with, well, I am not entirely sure.

Before being injured, Ware saw minimal action for the Cardinals. In fact, he averaged less than 17 minutes per game last year and does not project to be a vital member of the team’s rotation this season. But because America loves itself some comeback stories, Ware is an endearing player who the country will cheer on despite his limitations as a player.

If everything goes according to plan, Pitino claims that Ware will be able to fully participate in practices by the end of the month and will certainly be ready to play at the start of the season. Whether or not Pitino will actually want to play him will be another question for another day, however.

Sorry, America. He’s just not that good.
