    I just wish we had more info about Austin and if he does or doesn’t have marfan syndrome. This is just really confusing. I assume it’s all good, but obviously have safety concerns. Do we know why he is able to pass physicals and is cleared? Is it only a couple of doctors that he found to clear him, or is it a universal thing?

    Also, Miami has to get in on an NBA ASG. The boat show is moving to key biscayne anyway. I dont see why it’s such a deterrant
