Same People Livid Over Kevin Durant Injury, Celebrate Athletes Playing Hurt

The Most Legendary Moments in Sports History Were When Athletes Played Hurt

Listen to Colin Cowherd explain why the people who are offended by Kevin Durant returning to the court need to STOP, and why Durant’s attempt to save his Golden State Warriors from the brink of elimination was the type of heroic moment that make sports legendary.

Whether it’s Willis Reed returning to play in Game 7 of the 1970 NBA Finals, Kurt Gibson’s home run in the 1989 World Series, Tiger Woods 2003 US Open win with a torn ACL, or the Curt Schilling ‘Bloody Sock’ game in the 2004 ALCS, Colin says the same fans who always talk about how those were their favorite sports moments ever, are the ones now ‘outraged’ that the Warriors didn’t force Kevin Durant to sit out the rest of the Finals.

Check out the audio above as Colin says we can’t have them both ways, especially when we also go out of our way to criticize guys like Jay Cutler who DON’T play hurt.
