See Former NBA Hopeful Isaiah Austin's Emotional Draft Moment: "I'm Gonna Dream Again"

Isaiah Austin's dream of a career in the NBA was dashed just days ago, when he was diagnosed with Marfan syndrome. The genetic disease — which affects the body's connective tissue, including the heart, eyes, and joints — would make playing professional sports potentially life-threatening for the 20-year-old. Despite the fact that Isaiah will not be able to continue to pursue his promising basketball career, the league's commissioner granted the Baylor University sophomore an honorary first-round pick at last night's draft ceremony. Isaiah earned a standing ovation as he took the stage and shared some inspiring words for other people facing adversity in their lives. Watch the emotional moment unfold here:
