Then, in an instant OF Madden NFL 18 Coins

    Then, in an instant, it all came crashing down. I watched the video of Shaun Livingston's knee injury in 2007. I haven't watched it since, have no desire to watch it again, and have no desire to show it to you. But, to Madden NFL 18 Coins summarize, he jumped up for an uncontested layup, and when he came down, everything went wrong.
