This is just horrible, and there’s no other way to put it. Isaac has blown up over the past few days because of his national anthem stance.
He seemingly became one of the most popular players in the NBA over the past few days. Now, he’s done for the year after a gruesome knee injury.
Orlando Magic player Jonathan Isaac stood alone for the national anthem.
This is what courage looks like. When the rest of the NBA took a knee, Isaac stood with pride for America.

Hopefully, Isaac is able to bounce back better than ever after surgery. He’s only 22, which means his body should be just fine to make a recovery.
He has a bright future ahead of him, and you never want to see guy like that get hurt.
