Former Baylor center Isaiah Austin has been nothing but courageous and inspirational since learning that he’d no longer be able to continue his basketball career due to a genetic disorder called Marfan Syndrome. But the former NBA hopeful apparently ran into a situation that was a bit tough to handle today. Austin posted the transcript of a conversation that he claims to have had with a random woman, who was obviously unaware of his situation when she told him he was a “waste of height”.
Along with the transcript, Austin posted a bible verse, Matthew 7:1-5, which speaks to the concept of judging others.
It’s a heartbreaking conversation to read, but Austin has thus far done a great job staying positive about his future. Hopefully he won’t lose sight of his new goals.
