It is strange that he made it all the way into adulthood without realizing he had a disorder

His pediatrician should have suspected this at around 13/14yrs.

I thought my nephew had it when i saw how tall he looked among his friends, has long arms and is very lanky. I asked my SIL to have him tested, turns out he doesnt have Marfan's but has scoliosis

There was speculation that Michael Phelps has Marfan's as well, given his long arms and fingers thus giving him an advantage as a swimmer, but i think he tested negative. I think Abraham Lincoln had it too

I don't want to be the one but...I think they knew he probably had it but avoided officially testing for it because he wouldn't have been able to play basketball. His talent showed early and economically it probably made sense to take a chance on it, especially because he wasn't too impacted by it.

And hopefully he'll get his $1 million payout from his NCAA insurance policy so he'll be alright.
