Isaiah Austin is now a player in 2K15

2K is a great company and now one that people will really connect with as they’ve done something incredibly awesome. They’ve made former Baylor standout Isaiah Austin a playable character in their newest game — 2K15.

Back in June, mere days before the NBA Draft, it was announced that NBA hopeful Isaiah Austin’s basketball career was over after being diagnosed with Marfan Syndrome. Despite not being able to capture his dreams of being an NBA player, the Association was still able to keep him in the family, as they announced that he has a job waiting for him after he gets his degree.

Alongside having a future NBA gig, the folks at 2K will let gamers play as Isaiah Austin in 2K15. After updating the game, you’ll able to use Austin for your MyTeam or even add him to your favorite NBA team.

While his addition to NBA 2K15 is an amazing Christmas gift for Austin, it continues to mark the fantastic gestures that the NBA and its partners have continued to deliver for the young man.
