Kevin Ware still has at least six months before he can begin playing basketball again, so he could be looking at quite a bit of boredom once he is done watching his Louisville teammates fight for a national championship. What better way to cure the boredom blues than to get yourself a new puppy? On Tuesday, Ware shared a photo of his new dog. As if the No. 5 Ware jersey that the pup is wearing isn’t awesome enough, Ware also informed his followers that he has named the dog “Scar.” “Welcome Scar to the Ware Family!” he wrote. “We named him Scar to represent my struggle, and the “scar” that will be left on my leg after the healing process.” When you suffer an injury like this, you need all the comfort you can get during the recovery process. Ware has received a tremendous amount of support thus far and appears to be off to a great start in his journey back to the court. Hopefully Scar can help keep him company during his long rehab. H/T Game On!
