Isaiah Austin "The Comeback Kid"

December 1, 2016

Isaiah Austin was considered a first-round draft pick despite being legally blind in his right eye. Four days before the draft after a  routine physical, Isaiah's  dream of becoming a NBA player came to a crushing end. Austin was diagnosed with Marfan syndrome(MFS), which is a genetic disorder of the connective tissue. People with Marfan tend to be tall, and thin with long arms, legs, fingers and toes. Austin was invited to attend the draft and had his name called by commissioner Adam Silver. On Wednesday in a interview with Cassy Athena, Austin revealed that he has been medically cleared to return to playing basketball. 2 1/2 years since the draft Austin has been checked by his doctor David Liang at Stanford. When Dr. Liang give him the news, Austin started crying when he heard the news. Now a new chapter begins as Austin looks to continue his passion. Stay tuned for more as the story continues to develop.
