Bottom line:Shaun Livingston came out of Peoria (Ill.) Central High with the basketball world at his fingertips — a 6-foot-7 point guard picked No. 4 overall in 2004 by the Los Angeles Clippers straight out of high school.
In his third season, Livingston suffered one of the most gruesome injuries in NBA history when he snapped his left leg laterally. Doctors feared they would have to amputate initially but managed to save Livingston’s leg.
He learned to walk again within three months, started playing basketball within 18 months and rebuilt his career as a do-it-all role player.
He won three NBA titles and made over $40 million in his career before retiring in September 2019.
