NBA drafts Baylor center Isaiah Austin


Isaiah Austin was supposed to be a first round draft pick but a week before the NBA draft it was discovered that he had Marfan syndrome.  This diagnosis meant he would never be able to play competitive basketball again.

Instead of being drafted, Isaiah was offered a coaching job at Baylor & Adam Silver (Commissioner of the NBA) offered him a job when he graduates.
