Isaiah Austin, the Baylor product who recently announced he has a genetic disorder that will prevent him from playing basketball any longer, got his NBA Draft moment after all. Midway through the first round, NBA commissioner Adam Silver "selected" Austin on behalf of the league and brought him onto the stage.
It was a touching move noticed by many.
