Sympathetic Reaction Bodies (Basketball)

I usually don’t care a thing about sports, professional or college. But what caught my eye here in this youtube clip is the sympathetic physical reaction by Kevin Ware’s teammates when his leg busted out from under him in the Louisville Cardinals basketball team game against Duke Sunday in the 2013 NCAA Tournament. The entire team reacts, physically, as an extended single visceral body to the trauma suffered by one of its members.
