Last man standing: Orlando Magic’s Jonathan Isaac is the only player on either team to stand for the National Anthem

SHARE

The Orlando Magic defeated the Brooklyn Nets 128-118, but the story of the game was a lone player who stood during the National Anthem, Jonathan Isaac.

Isaac, who was supposed to miss the entire season with a knee injury – but was able to return due to the delay, stood out during the Anthem as all other players from the Magic and the Brooklyn Nets knelt.

Isaac also did not wear any Black Lives Matter apparel.

He is the first NBA player to stand for the Anthem since basketball resumed play.

After the game, he was asked by a reporter if he believed that black lives matter. He replied, “absolutely, black lives matter.”

He continued by stating that kneeling or putting on a t-shirt wasn’t the answer for him.
