Isaiah Austin's Career Over After Marfan Diagnosis... A Team Should Draft Him Anyway

((HT: ESPN))

Isaiah Austin has overcome a lot to be a tremendous college basketball player- losing the sight out of an eye at the age of 8 and having to deal with all the stigma that comes with it. But keeping the loss of sight out of the public discussion until only recently has reinforced the public opinion that the Baylor player really is someone that is to be admired.

After his red-shirt sophomore season, he declared for the NBA Draft. But a diagnosis of Marfan's Syndrome has taken his dream and stopped it four days before the draft.

The HQ hopes that a franchise will draft Austin in the second round and make him an ambassador of the sport for their franchise.

San Antonio would make a great example of it...

Just thinking out loud...
