What's the value in replaying an injury as head-turning as Nurkic? You're rewatching what might be the most devastating moment in that person's life, permanently seared in your mind forever. Having that floating in space doesn't enrich anyone's life other than the sad people who enjoy watching others suffer. 

Media already has a bad reputation for exploiting people when they are at their worst. People still watch the injuries that happened to Kevin Ware, Paul George and Gordon Hayward like they are drawn to catastrophe. There is no need to exploit this kind of disgusting event anymore. This content needs to be banned immediately.

It's not that people like to see these kinds of injuries occur. No one wants to see a Nurkic-type injury happen to anyone, but there is something to be said about being informed. If the media is here to share every aspect of life, horrific injuries are unfortunately part of that.

Banning this kind of content robs people of knowing the harsh realities of life. Athletes put their bodies on the line and while these injuries are a grim reminder, they are a warning nonetheless that pro sports come with risks.

People are acting like they're being forced to watch these replays when they can just turn away or click out of a page.This kind of content should not be banned.
