Magic’s Jonathan Isaac: Kneeling, wearing BLM T-shirt not "answer" for him

Jonathan Isaac did not kneel during National Anthem

"... Putting that shirt on and kneeling wasn't hand in hand on supporting Black lives or made me support Black lives or not". All lives are supported through the Gospel. We're protesting and doing thing to get something done.

"I feel we got better as the games went on", noted Nets guard Caris LeVert after scoring a team-high 23 points in Monday night's scrimmage finale, a 112-107 loss to the Utah Jazz in Brooklyn's final dress rehearsal before Friday's much-anticipated showdown with the Orlando Magic. For me, Black lives are supported through the Gospel, all lives are supported through the Gospel, . "And sometimes, we get into pointing fingers".

All players have voiced their opinion on BLM and kneeling during the anthem to make a statement. Broadcasting workers in the background stood with their hands over their hearts. Isaac was asked by Bleacher Report's Taylor Rooks why he stood for the anthem instead of kneeling with his teammates.

While health is doubtlessly at the top of his list of priorities, Vaughn also wants his club to focus on the task at hand, avoiding a potential play-in series with the ninth-seeded Washington Wizards and making the most of the days they have leading up to Friday's critical game against eighth-seeded Orlando. "We all can take something from his legacy to make us better people every single day", Isaac said, prompting applause.

"If somebody believes that isn't the way they want to protest, then they don't do it. For whatever reasons I have, I reacted the way I wanted to".

James had the go-ahead basket with 12.8 seconds left in Thursday's second game of the NBA's re-opening doubleheader, moving the Lakers moved closer to clinching the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference playoffs by topping the Los Angeles Clippers, 103-101, on Thursday night in the second game of the NBA's re-opening doubleheader. Players, coaches, reporters, and others linked to the season restart are in a so-called bubble environment in Florida, unable to leave without being quarantined when re-entering Walt Disney World in Orlando. We are proud of the positive impact our players have made and join with them in the belief that sports can bring people together - bridging divides and promoting inclusion, equality, diversity and unity. The NBA has a rule requiring players to stand for the anthem since 1981, but Commissioner Adam Silver said he wouldn't be enforcing it, allowing for peaceful demonstrations.

The league is focusing on promoting racial equality in the United States, according to deputy National Basketball Association commissioner Mark Tatum.

Again at the Lakers-Clippers game, various players had social justice messages on the backs of their uniforms.

"Our platform in Orlando presents a unique opportunity to extend the ongoing fight against systemic racism and police brutality in this country", Michele Roberts, the association's executive director, said in a statement.
