Baylor’s Isaiah Austin drafted by the NBA

Isaiah Austin’s dream came true, thanks to a wonderful gesture by the NBA.

The former Arlington Grace Prep star and Baylor Bear was expected to hear his name called Thursday night at the draft in New York. He did, even though his basketball career ended last weekend with the diagnosis that he suffers from Marfan Syndrome, a genetic disorder.

Before the 16th pick, commissioner Adam Silver paused to say that the NBA was drafting Austin.
