Isaiah Austin has been in the Philippines for a week now and continues to acclimate himself with the people and with his teammates.
Isaiah Austin has been highly talked about after the news about his arrival to the Philippines has surfaced. The former Baylor College basketball player and a once NBA top 10 draft prospect is going to play for the Philippines in the upcoming FIBA Asia Champions Cup.
Austin at 23 had gone through a lot of adversity in life and considered the chance to play with Gilas Pilipinas a second life in basketball.
Now with the Philippine team, Austin has become a great inspiration and a model to strive and never surrender through hardships.
During tune-up games with local teams, Isaiah Austin displays athleticism but his scoring leadership is still unable to show.
