Let this post be a lesson to anyone who may jump to conclusions. Former Baylor Bears center Isaiah Austin was poised to make the jump to the NBA this year. That is until doctors informed him that his life would be drastically changing. Instead of preparing for his first NBA season, Austin is left watching from the sidelines with a disorder known as Marfan Syndrome – a genetic disorder of the connective tissue. He’ll never be able to play basketball again.
Austin posted the following Instagram on Monday of a conversation he engaged in with a woman. It’s quite sad knowing that Austin didn’t waste anything, but rather was never given the opportunity to take his talents to the professional level. He shared “Matthew 7:1-5” with the image of his conversation.
