NBA Ceremoniously Drafts Isaiah Austin
Just a few days away from achieving his life-long dream of joining the NBA, Baylor's sophomore Isaiah Austin received the news that he suffered from Marfan Syndrome, a genetic syndrome that would sideline him from the sport forever. But NBA Commissioner Adam Silver fulfilled Austin's dream by ceremoniously drafting him into the NBA.
The touching gesture, captured in the video below shows Austin's reaction. The 20-year-old athlete vows to share his story so that he could "touch people's lives." "I thank God for every moment on this earth," he said.
