Mobilized by crutches and a winning attitude after snapping his leg during a game, Louisville guard Kevin Ware is not taking life lying down. Especially if you bait him with a question, as it seems TMZ just did.
While Kevin told TMZ some things are difficult as he heals from the injury sustained during the Louisville v. Duke game on March 31, a photog asked him if it has interfered with his sex life. He laughs and shakes his head no…
Now, Kevin is leaving Twitter and credits the TMZ fiasco as just one of the reasons he’s leaving.
This is my last tweet. All the support from fans was well appreciated but its a team rule. Losers like tmz is a prime example why I don’t.

Kevin attended the White House Correspondent’s Dinner on Saturday as a guest of CNN. Ware is expected to return to the team next season, WDRB-TV reports.
