    I heard on the news today that Livingstone suffered no arterial or nerve damage (although he did sever three ligaments). I know with McCallum's injury one of the problems they had was restoring proper blood flow to the lower leg due to massive arterial damage. He still has a long rehab, but it sounds like Livingstone should eventually be back on the court.

    I read an interesting article the other day about Livingston, using his situation as an argument for players to come out of college early (like Livingston did)

    What do you guys think?

    Yeah I read the same thing. It's all about money these days, I would rather go to college though. It's a fun experience.
