Isaiah Todd credits his mother, Marlene, for his drive to succeed, but their journey began long before him. She was arguably the biggest female drug dealer in the Baltimore projects during the 1990s. Now, she’s the rock behind Isaiah’s versatility on and off the court — from the top high school player to a G League trendsetter and NBA draft prospect. Check out CloseUp360’s special documentary “Isaiah & Marlene: From Baltimore Streets to NBA Dreams.”

    Isaiah is going to show the NBA that not only does he belong, but that he can be one of the best that ever did it!

    His mentality is different.. I think he’s gonna be the steal of the draft. Not sure why all the mocks have him so low, but maybe they know something we all don’t.

    Isaiah!! We (The Lanes) had the pleasure of meeting you and my boys played with you at Madison with Coach Derrick. Make sure you keep GOOD people around you and the haters away…b/c people will hate. Always keep a good head on your shoulders, stay humble, and you will go far. Proud of you guy. The sky truly is the limit. Stay blessed!!

    I hope he achieves his dreams but… I’m from east Baltimore (Greenmount) and for any drug dealer to say they didn’t do anyone wrong is 🧢. No, you didn’t force anyone to use your product, but you made it readily available to capitalize off of others weakness. I’m glad she turned her life around, but we gotta stop acting like the drug game hasn’t decimated our community.

    I’ll be watching for Isaiah, wishing him nothing but the best.
