Isaiah Canaan has come a long way, from going through disaster, to now realizing his dream of being drafted into the NBA. In 2005, Canaan and his family were in the path of Hurricane Katrina. As Katrina swept through Biloxi, Canaan waited out the storm in a church with his grandma. By the time he got back home, he had lost just about everything. "I lost everything but a week, probably three, four days of clothes, a couple of pairs of my shoes, and my Playstation," Canaan said. "That's all I had to my name. For awhile, close to a month, I had no house, I was living out of a church, so I pretty much lost everything. I had to restart and work my way back in." CSN Houston

"It changed me and matured me a lot faster than I would've thought," Canaan said. "It taught me not to value material things as much. I mean, as a 14-year-old, you don't pay attention to a lot of these things that are really important like life and people around you like your family. As a typical 14-year-old, I was just wanted to run around and play and be with my friends. So it really matured me and showed me the value of things that are really important besides things that are material that I probably value, like all my trophies and all my accolades that I had. So it really made me a better person. It made me look at life a lot different and I want to do things the right way and I want to be successful in everything I do because you never know when it can be taken from you in a blink of an eye. So now that I'm here, I know not to just let it go to waste, because you work so hard for it, and I never want to go back to having nothing at all, so I try to get here and stay." CSN Houston
