Orlando Magic forward Jonathan Isaac became the first NBA player to stand for the National Anthem as the league resumed play after a 20-week hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The television broadcast showed Isaac, who is Black, standing as players and coaches from both teams, as well as referees, took a knee during the playing of the National Anthem. The 22-year-old forward was also the only player seen not wearing a "Black Lives Matter" shirt.

Brass stones. Theyre going to be going after him.
A committed Christian. The man preaches the gospel....when necessary he uses words
In a time of universal deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act.
Refs were kneeling. The refs. NBA got it bad.
Courageous and principled, indeed. He just shortened his playing career by 2-3 years, my guess. His lifetime income also will commensurately drop by 25-50%. No way the Woke NBA won’t penalize him in a multitude of ways on and off the court. Just for standing during our national anthem and not wearing a virtue signaling T-shirt. Even worse, he invoked his Christian faith as justification. High crimes in the Wokauniverse.
Anyone who does not walk out or who does not turn them off on their tv is condoning this disrespect of our flag. They are disputable. Why do they not move to a different country. Did they never pledge allegiance to the flag?
Protests are protected speech. Even against the flag. Protests against protests are protected as well. Dont be that jack booted guy who would deny a protest.
Oh bullshit. BLM are commie scum. They’d go full khmer rouge on those who disagree with them if they could.
“The man preaches the gospel....when necessary he uses words.”
In other eras, these brainwashed pro athlete sheeple would all throw a Nazi salute, or moon their fans, or dance the hokie-pokie: whatever the group-think mandated.
It takes no courage to go along with the group-think herd.
It takes courage to stand against it.
Looks like I have a new favorite player
Bravo and thank you!
He’s a Liberaltarian - it’s everyone’s Gaia-given right to despise their country.
I can’t do whatever I feel like at work.
Not allowing things at work doesn’t make one jack booted.
Call your boss a c*** on Monday, then claim it’s your right.
Let me know how that goes.
Comparing the NBA player to that man is ridiculous.
