Orlando Magic forward Jonathan Isaac is, so far, the only NBA player with the stones to reject kneeling.
“Kneeling or wearing a Black Lives Matter t-shirt doesn’t go hand in hand with supporting black lives. I believe that my life has been supported through the Gospel, everyone is made in the image of God.”
“I feel like we all make mistakes but that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is that there’s grace for us and that Jesus came and died for our sins and that if we all come to an understanding of that and understand that God must have a relationship with us that we can get past skin color and we can get past all the things in our world that is messed up and jacked up. I think if you look around, racism isn’t the only thing that plagues our society, that plagues our nation, that plagues our world. And I feel coming together on that message that we want to get past not only racism but everything that plagues us as a society, I feel like the answer to it is the gospel.”
