It’s time to #DreamAgain for Isaiah Austin.

"On Sunday morning, just days before the Baylor sophomore center was slated to hear his named called in Thursday’s NBA Draft, Isaiah made the announcement that his professional basketball career was over before it ever started.    

Last month at the NBA Combine a routine EKG came back abnormal, prompting Isaiah to get further testing.   A follow-up MRI revealed an enlarged aortic artery and blood work confirmed it was Marfan syndrome, a genetic disorder that affects the body’s connective tissue.  Some Marfan features – for example, aortic enlargement – can be life-threatening.

Going off life-long advice from his mother, Isaiah, who was a 2013 NIT Champion with Baylor and named Big 12 All-Defensive Team in 2014, has vowed to make this his story, not his excuse.  He has turned the heartbreaking news into a positive, releasing his Dream Again limited-edition tee to help support the Marfan Foundation.”
