Isaac, in his first game since January because of a knee injury, played well.

Not only did Isaac stand for the anthem, but he declined to wear a Black Lives Matter warmup t-shirt as all the other players did during the pre-game demonstration.

Instead, he wore his Magic jersey and warmup trousers during the anthem. Following Thursday's game, LeBron James said he hopes National Basketball Association players made former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick proud.

The world is talking about Jonathan Isaac now and awaits his reasons for not kneeling during the national anthem.

The same goes for anyone who wishes to stand - no one is saying the players HAVE to kneel, either.

"I believe that Black lives matter", Isaac said. "A lot went into my decision, and part of it is that, first off, it's my thought that kneeling while wearing a Black Lives Matter T-shirt don't go hand in hand with supporting Black lives", he said, according to The Athletic's Clevis Murray.

Large "Black Lives Matter" slogans have been written on each National Basketball Association court, while players are allowed to wear jerseys adorned with messages ranging from "I Can't Breathe" to "Justice Now" and "Education Reform".

Once the attackers got those credentials, they were able to use Twitter's account support tools to gain access to user accounts. The criminal complaints says the Twitter attack consisted of a combination of technical breaches and social engineering.

He's an ordained minister who said he believes his life has been supported by the gospel and that religion is the way "to get past skin color".

Jonathan Isaac scored 16 points and logged six rebounds in Orlando's win over Brooklyn in the NBA's season restart.

The relaunch is also getting under way after nationwide soul-searching about racism and police brutality in the United States following the death of unarmed black man George Floyd during his arrest by police on May 25 in Minneapolis.

Isaac has been open about his Christian faith and even became an ordained minister during the National Basketball Association shutdown.

The team said it was proud of its players, and stressed that the protests are not about the military, but about "bigotry, racial injustice and the unwarranted use of violence by police". Day, the Orlando Magic chose Jonathan Isaac to say a few words to fans before tipoff of a game at Amway Center. Isaac followed that rule.

The players and coaches on the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers also knelt prior to Thursday night's later game at The Arena on the Wide World of Sports campus.
