Magic’s Isaac says gospel reason for not kneeling

Orlando Magic forward Jonathan Isaac became the first to not take a knee nor wear a Black Lives Matter movement t-shirt during the national anthem ahead of his side’s NBA encounter against the Brooklyn Nets.

After the match, which the Magic won 128-118 with Isaac recording six rebounds and 16 points, the 22-year-old said he did not condone racism and he did believe that black lives matter, but added that kneeling or wearing a t-shirt did not go ‘hand-in-hand’ with the gospel and his strong religious beliefs.

The Magic sit seventh in the Eastern Conference and take to the court for their second game since the season was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic in March against the Sacramento Kings on Sunday (August 2).

All matches are being played at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in the Walt Disney World Resort near Orlando, where the NBA plans to finish its season with 22 teams inside a bio-secure bubble.
