ATLANTA (AP) – Kevin Ware has a new role.
The Louisville guard, who accompanied his teammates to the Final Four just three days after breaking his leg in gruesome fashion, was scheduled to present the Top 10 List on the “Late Show with David Letterman” on Thursday night. Ware also spoke with the late-night talk show host earlier in the day, doing the interview via satellite from the team hotel.
Ware has become something of a celebrity since his lower right leg snapped during Sunday’s Midwest Regional final against Duke. NBA stars Kobe Bryant and Dwyane Wade sent well-wishes via Twitter, and Ware also heard from Kevin Durant and Charles Barkley. Even First Lady Michelle Obama has reached out to the sophomore guard.
