Marfan's Syndrome is doing all it can to slow former Baylor Forward Isaiah Austin, but it can't halt his pursuit of a career in basketball.

Austin will be at the NBA's Summer League in as Vegas until the 16th of July as an Intern with NBA TV. “It’s been fun," Austin told WFUV, in between signing autographs and taking pictures with fans. "I’m doing a lot of different things. I've been interviewing, been working with Bleacher Report a little bit. I'm really just getting to know TV broadcasting.”

I remember watching Matthew Dellavedova play for St. Mary’s in the NCAA Tournament. He didn’t seem extremely quick or athletic then, and still doesn’t now. That said, Dellavedova knows how to play point guard better than anyone I’ve seen at the Summer League.

With countless favorable impressions made in the first three days the NBA's Summer League in Las Vegas, Doug McDermott's strong start can get lost in the fold.

Through two games in Vegas, McDermott is shooting a cool 50% from three, 45% from the field, and has dropped 41 points. The folks inside the COX Pavilion were treated to a show Sunday night, as 31 of those points came during an exquisite 7/12 (5/9 3 PT) shooting performance.
