Adam Silver And The NBA Draft Isaiah Austin

Comments:  | Leave A Comment

Last Sunday, Isaiah Austin found out he wouldn’t be able to start a career in the NBA. The Baylor center was diagnosed with Marfan syndrome, and continuing to play competitive basketball would jeopardize his life. Tonight, he was still at the draft, and in the middle of the first round, Adam Silver and the NBA took Austin with a ceremonial pick.

Austin will apparently have a couple of opportunities to start a non-competitive career in basketball.
