NBA Draft prospect Isaiah Austin was recently diagnosed with a disease called Marfan’s Syndrome, which ended his ability to continue playing basketball and all hopes of ever playing in the NBA. Tonight at the draft commissioner Adam Silver honored Austin by giving him honorary draft status into the NBA.

Silver had big shoes to fill when David Stern retired, but he’s certainly holding his own.
