Magic’s Jonathan Isaac explains why he did not kneel with teammates for anthem

Larry Brown Sports

Jonathan Isaac was the lone player to stand for the national anthem during Friday’s Orlando Magic-Brooklyn Nets game, and now he is explaining why.

The Magic big man remained standing for the playing of the anthem before the game while the rest of his teammates took a knee around him. Isaac was also not wearing the “Black Lives Matter” T-shirt that the other players were wearing, instead going with his regular Magic game jersey.

After the game, the 22-year-old explained his decision not to take a knee.
