WATCH: Jonathan Isaac Explains Why He Stood During the National Anthem, Cites His Faith

Moments ago, the Orlando Magic’s Jonathan Isaac explained why he didn’t kneel or wear a BLM shirt.

Isaac is the first to not kneel since the restart of the NBA season.

“Kneeling or wearing a Black Lives matter t-shirt didn’t go hand in hand with supporting Black Lives” Isaac said “I believe that my life has been supported through the Gospel, everyone is made in the image of God”

This was the dramatic moment where Jonathan Isaac was the lone standing NBA player during the national anthem.


Prior to the NBA’s restart, Charles Barkley weighed in on kneeling.

“The thing is, the national anthem means different things to different people,” Barkley said.

“I’m glad these guys are all unified, but if people don’t kneel, they’re not a bad person. I want to make that perfectly clear.”
