Sunday it was announced that Isaiah Austin, who entered his name into the 2014 NBA Draft pool after spending two seasons at Baylor, would have to stop playing basketball due to his being diagnosed with Marfan syndrome. Yet even with having to manage the painful reality of his career coming to an end, Austin has done his best to maintain a positive outlook.
Wednesday he was a guest on “Yahoo Sports Dash,” discussing his plans moving forward and his being a guest of NBA commissioner Adam Silver at Thursday’s NBA Draft. With a motto of “dream again,” Austin is now selling T-shirts on his website with the proceeds being used to help fund research of Marfan syndrome.
