Former NBA prospect Isaiah Austin talked to an audience about his new book, “Dream Again”, and signed copies of it at the NBA Store on June 23 at 5:00pm this week. Austin was a contender to be selected at the draft until he found out at the had an illness that would prevent him from pursuing that kind of career in basketball, so he wrote about about how he will not help to inspire other future athletes. The book signing went very well and many people who are touched by Austin’s story came to show support of what he is doing and to encourage him to keep moving forward. In addition to that, the former college ball player managed to get his word across to many people who came to see him.
Austin played basketball for two years at Baylor University from 2012 to 2014, and during those couple of seasons he made a great name for himself. He was the McDonald’s All-American award winner of 2012 and a part of the Big 12 All-Defensive Team in 2014. In June of 2014, Austin was crushed to learn that he has Marfan Syndrome which is a condition that affects the body’s connective tissue and that he would no longer be able to play the sport competitively. Despite learning this he has decided to move forward by being involved with other aspects of the sport.
The former Baylor player showed up at the NBA store to sign autographs on his new book “Dream Again” which he hopes to use to motivate other people who would like to play a sport professionally.
