2K Sports is a Class Act, Adds Isaiah Austin As Playable Free Agent in NBA 2K15

In a year filled with a lot of negative gaming news, 2K Sports has decided to do something incredible. Former college basketball star Isaiah Austin, who was once considered to be a lottery pick in the 2014 draft, had his career cut short due to a medical condition. 2K Sports has decided to feature him as a playable free agent for all platforms of NBA 2K15.

Austin was revealed just prior to the NBA Draft that he was diagnosed with Marfan Syndrome, and would not be eligible to continue his basketball career. Its always sad to see someone fall short of their life long dream, and including Isaiah Austin into the biggest basketball game out there is a classy gesture by 2K Sports.
