Bottom line: Shaun Livingston, who was Illinois Mr. Basketball in 2004, was having a breakout season in 2007 before suffering one of most gruesome injuries in NBA history.
He dislocated his left knee to the point that it was almost amputated and tore every major ligament and tendon.
He returned to the court and played on eight teams in his comeback, capped by three NBA titles with Golden State Warriors.
