Too often in sports the story lines of negativity blur out the many positive stories that surround the sports landscape.  Especially those that turn a negative moment into a positive story, like the story of Baylor's Isaiah Austin.

Austin played two seasons at Baylor before declaring for the draft earlier this year. He was expected to be a second-round pick, but that was until he was diagnosed with Marfan syndrome less than a week ago.

Thus ending any idea of ever playing in the NBA.  New Commissioner Adam Silver made a special announcement at last night's NBA draft, that the NBA would draft Isaiah Austin and grant him his wish of being drafted on draft day.
