NBA player Jonathan Isaac tears ACL days after standing for anthem

Jonathan Isaac, a forward from the Orlando Magic, surly did not want to make the news this fashion. The NBA is back in the middle of a global pandemic and many people are looking forward to it. This is a chance for fans to see the Orlando Magic in the playoffs.

Isaac sparked controversy when he stood during the national anthem while the rest of his Magic teammates kneeled in Black Lives Matter T-shirts to show their support for social justice issues. Despite backlash from some quarters and an increase in jersey sales from others, Isaac, a devout Christian, said that he just didn’t believe kneeling was the way to show his support.

A few days later, Isaac made news once again when he went down with a torn ACL during a game against the Sacramento Kings on Sunday. He was wheeled off the court and won’t return for the rest of the season.
