Jersey sales for Orlando Magic player Jonathan Isaac have gone through the roof over the past few days.

According to BroBible, Isaac’s jersey was the second best selling in the NBA as of Sunday after he stood alone during the national anthem. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

I checked the NBA store myself Monday morning, and many versions of Isaac’s jersey were unavailable and sold out.

Unfortunately for Isaac, he tore his ACL Sunday against the Kings, and his season is over.

The fact that Isaac’s jersey started flying off the shelf is a pretty good sign that there are still a lot of people in America who support standing for the anthem.

As I said at the time, it took a ton of courage to stand alone during the national anthem. When Isaac did it, he was the only player in the entire NBA to stand.

If that’s not courage, then I don’t know what is.

It’s really too bad that Isaac tore his ACL. It seemed like he was about to be a major NBA storyline, and now it’s all over for the season.

At least his jersey sales are huge. Hopefully, it serves as a reminder that there are millions of people in America who agree with standing for the anthem.
