Orlando Magic's Jonathan Isaac explains why he didn't take knee or wear Black Lives Matter shirt Friday

"We had an incredible opening weekend of games name a star level player that player delivered at least once if not twice over the first three or four nights of the NBA's restart here in Orlando, we had crazy comeback wins. By the Houston Rockets, we had a dominant performance by. Jaanus over some little pesky pip squeak team from New England I forget who they might be. We got Marcus smart got fined for trying to work the officials. We've got storylines upon story lines. The clippers bounce back from their loss to the Lakers. Looking excellent and just throttling the New Orleans Pelicans. There's so many different directions that we can go Michael that I decided. Here's what we're GONNA do opening weekend heaters we're GONNA have just open ended questions are we're going to ping pong back and forth you give me your answers I'm going to give you my answers to these questions and try to cover as much ground as possible before we get there though I do want to double back quickly on the national anthem demonstrations that we touched on last episode, we got so many thoughtful emails from various members of the open floor globe on this subject, but I think there was a major development after we spoke on Friday. and. That involve Jonathan Isaac Meyers. Leonard Gregg Popovich Becky Hammon and one of the NBA referees all deciding to not kneel to not really participate in what had been in unified demonstration on Thursday. All of those people who chose to stand were obviously doing it on principle and they were doing it knowing there was going to be a lot of attention their direction. Now, if you look at Popovich amend the referee essentially, they were trying to just say, Hey, I support the the Social Justice Movement it's it's a private or personal decision for the referee said look I it's important to me to stand Meyers Leonard made a similar comment. Essentially. Saying that his brothers military service in the in the military service of close people in his life led him to WanNa stand to salute the flag. But within Isaac was a slightly different case and he actually used this entire demonstration opportunity to almost have a one man demonstration of his own. In his belief, the idea of the black lives matters movement quote unquote doesn't go hand in hand with supporting black lives. He also said that you know we shouldn't be necessarily judging things solely based on skin color that we should be trying to live a life basically you know in God's mold and try to live up to his standard, and that Jesus Christ was his personal savior and and that he wanted everyone to focus on that. Aspect of of living rather than the particular issue that was being brought forward with the black lives matter movement by the players he didn't really get any major pushback. Within the NBA Community people respected his right to make a stand. He actually not only did he stand during the national anthem? He didn't wear a black lives matter t shirt which many people notice because he was essentially the only player not to do that his whole personal story Michael took a crazy twist over the weekend and sad twist when he wound up tearing his ACL injury that's going to end his time here in Orlando obviously but also could cost him all of next season. So now talk about a whirlwind seventy, two hours for player who generated millions of us with his comments about the protests. I'm curious. Let's start with Jonathan Isaac. What did you make of his decision? After we've seen things settle in the last couple of days You know maybe it doesn't seem quite as Eye Opening as it did at that moment, but I'll admit I was I was surprised to see given the buy in from everybody on opening night. Right, I mean I just WanNa Start and say that it it really really is a bummer to see anyone get injured but particularly is ICK who was already on restriction he was already playing with a humongous brace on his leg from a previous injury that cost him a majority of this regular season before it was suspended. So I just I feel for him greatly. I I think generally speaking. The coverage of who stands in who sits I mean we talked about this heading in anticipated it I. Think I think the coverage is generally besides the point and it doesn't really get the point I feel like people are using. This as an opportunity to shame those who are standing in a little bit I mean Meyers Leonard. said, he couldn't sleep before he made the decision to stand and that's just like not. The whole focus or the point here right like. You can obviously Support Black lives and also stand for the national anthem. It is a symbolic gesture that is what it is in the case of Isaac. I really had a difficult time understanding even what his message was until you interpreted it the way that you did I mean I watched the clip of Him Multiple Times survey there I'm GonNa just GonNa read what he said I and then we can use that as a jumping off point because I don't WanNa torture what he said earlier and I might have done that. So sorry for that. He says quote absolutely I believe that black lives matter kneeling while wearing a black lives matter t shirt doesn't go hand in hand with supporting black lives. I. Don't think kneeling or putting on a T. shirt for me personally is the answer i. Feel like for me, black lives are supported through the Gospel. All lives are supported through the Gospel. We all have things that we do wrong. Sometimes, it gets into a place of pointing fingers. We all fall short of God's glory whoever will humble themselves and seek God and repent of their sins. We can see our mistakes and people's mistakes and evil in a different light. Racism isn't the only thing that flags our society, our nation and our world, and he basically said he wanted this conversation to get out of the realm of skin color because the answer to all of our problems in everything that goes on in our world is Jesus. So. when I watched the clip. I'll I'll be honest. I was a little confused where he was going to after typing it all out trying to marinate on what he was saying I think he essentially wanted to have a demonstration on behalf of his religious beliefs and that this was an opportunity for him to say look you know focusing only on one particular group I. Guess in his view, the black lives matter group and you know everybody wearing a t-shirt doesn't necessarily achieve the wider goal which would be presumably healthy living. You know honest living you know Living which to him as a higher priority I think that's where he was going with his statements.

"Guess there's not too. There's three Clemson dynasty. Right. You can be a dynasty. If you if you just appear in these championship games. Right. Clemson and Alabama the dynasties going in college football. They're the most consistent once they're always going to be favors in college football dynasties. Yes, there's two there's two I would say Clemson is a part of it if absolutely if you want they just want. Yeah. Yeah. So what Dan is two championships? Three years. Is it two out of three? This is what I was gonna say. So I it's kind of like, we think Alabama. Patriots right now Clemson have sneak their way back into that conversation because they've won two titles in the last three years, but it is funny because in two th this year, Alabama lost the national championship game. The patriots won the Super Bowl in two thousand seventeen Alabama won the national championship game. And the patriots lost the Super Bowl two thousand sixteen. Alabama lost the national championship game. And the patriots won the Super Bowl two thousand fifteen Alabama won the national championship game. And the patriots lost the Super Bowl two thousand fourteen Alabama lost. The patriots won the Super Bowl and in two thousand twelve Alabama won the national championship game. And the patriots lost the Super Bowl. They can't get it really. Can't do it in synchronized if they both do it in the same year. Then God help by goodness knows what's going to be something that would come on this earth and explode us all maybe the kind of clues baby that's the year like the sun just like goes away. And we all just that's it with Alabama New England can't win the same year. It's kind of funny. I just looked at that. Sweet. There was interesting. All right. Maybe it's because the devil can only deliver unlike one bargain per year, the devil. Clearly, they've made they both made packs, right, but like the devil can't double book, you know, two thousand eighteen or twenty nine thousand nine for the crimson tide and the page. You know? It's funny. It's funny. You say the devil. I don't know why I'm thinking, you know, that you were talking. We were talking about the show yesterday about the show we talking after the show about commercials that we both in the Super Bowl, and I was talking and I said at the very end we brought up a couple and you brought up the best one after the show. The reason why I thought of this devil. Hell the elevator going down the hell. Get the hell fairly. So Jason Bateman was in that fantastic. Funny commercial about all of these things. You don't want it. This was the best commercial tonight. I thought about all of the elevator going down. Okay out. Here is something that you don't want to do like vegan dinner. And there you go down the least desirable. The and then they finally get to car buying and then at the very bond, which is the very bottom. And and they're like, well, no, we can buy our our Hyundai. I think. We can buy our Hyundai on on on the on his apple whatever that was a that. To me was the best commercial the night. Jason Jason Bateman was the best. I thought that that was and he was the perfect actor. Oh. Great. Magic johnson. And the Los Angeles Lakers are trying to plan to get Anthony Davis and apparently talks are heating up. Thursday is the trade deadline, three o'clock eastern. Okay. Now, here's the interesting thing. I believe that Magic Johnson is under a tremendous amount of pressure to get this deal done. And a lot of pressure on a couple of levels. First of all he missed out on Paul George last year. He did Paul George didn't make the moves to get the trade done. And so they took a risk Paul George ends up. Stay gets traded to Oklahoma City. Oklahoma City gets the that gets the trade with Indiana, not the Los Angeles Lakers and magic like, okay. Well, all I'm hearing for all this time. Is that Paul George wants to be a Laker? So you go and B rental go to Oklahoma City. You waste your your draft. Picks your Victor Oladipo you send all that stuff away. 'cause we're getting Paul George not you Oklahoma City at giant for year. That's what Magic Johnson said last year. I guess what Paul George signed an extension with Oklahoma City. So he lost out on Paul, George. Kawhi Leonard does all this, by the way. All this is about getting a co superstar for LeBron James. We have one superstar now looking for Costa for stars. So all right. Leonard this off season, then trade for Koi Leonard Gregg Popovich, San Antonio Spurs, rightfully I think are a little reluctant to train them within the Western Conference says all right. You know, what co- I wondered that's fine. I can handle you go to the raptors. That's fine. Yeah. We're gonna deport you. How about he literally said that out of the country? Gregg Popovich, come on. He definitely did that a little bit out of spite. Right co I Leonard, oh, you're not gonna play the last fifty games or whatever it was fine. Go to sunny, gorgeous, beautiful, Los Angeles. Can I interest you in Toronto cannon? Oh my God. It's those three months out of the year. A funny. All right. So the Lakers still Magic Johnson at that point is like all right? Well, we could still get Kawai. Right. But then there's reports coming out the Kawai doesn't even want to play with the Lakers Kawai maybe wants to go to the Los Angeles Clippers Modakeke, oh, by the way, former clippers video guy and now MBA analyst he's coming up next. I'm gonna ask him all these questions. So now the Lakers are faced with Anthony Davis who is going to be this co superstar for LeBron James, this is why Magic Johnson was brought in Magic Johnson was brought in because it was thought from Jeanie Buss that he could really relate to players. He's a former player, he's a former great. So he's going to naturally bring integrates and now I have a great possibly the greatest of all time. That's not for this topic right now. Lebron James I have LeBron James. It's going to be easy. I think Magic Johnson bought that. This was going to be easy. I have LeBron James. I have all these assets. It's going to be easy to get a superstar. So now the latest rumor here and again, it's all rumors right now. Is it the pelicans seeking four draft picks? Anthony Davis trade. Rumors four draft picks this one from Matthew Merano of Lakers nation. The rumor is the pelicans now seeking four draft picks and overwhelming offer for the Los Angeles Lakers who have offered re apparently they've increased their offer to Lonzo ball. Michael Beasley Brandon Ingram. Kyle Kuzma on Rondo, Lance Stevenson and multiple draft picks. This is the godfather offer. There's nothing else. The Lakers can do but there's gonna be a ton of blame this off season. And I don't know how right. It is. I'm just telling you the pressure that Magic Johnson is under this is why he's going to get all the if the Lakers never end up getting a superstar. And I don't think that's going to happen. But if they don't end up getting a superstar for LeBron James and LeBron James finished his career and doesn't get another championship. K? Have you want tennis career with the Lakers? And he doesn't get another championship. The blame will go. Oh, magic it will. You're not going to blame abroad because LeBron has tremendous his ability is still there. We could see we're just waiting for the other superstar, and that's the job of management. So I I'm just telling you what the narrative will be. If it doesn't happen. This to me is an offer that I would think about it from the pelicans specifically because this.

"That exactly russell westbrook will do just that we continue with go the spurs lost one oh nine ninety three in houston last night to drop to ten ten in the western conference the last time that san antonio was outside the top ten this or out to the top eight rather this late in the season ninety six ninety seven which by the way was the last time the spurs missed the playoffs spurs coach gregg popovich says he'll speak to enter today when the team returns home and isn't that really what this is all about chris whether or not they're gonna get anything out of to sort of get them back into the playoffs and maybe have a push in the postseason no that's exactly what it's all about because they're not gonna go very far without kawhi leonard i think they're targeting that thursday game against the new orleans pelicans as a potential date where he could come back but they haven't played well without kawhi in the lineup of late eleven of lost eleven of their last fourteen games now the thing is they've got ten of their final fifteen games at home so maybe some home cooking is exactly what gregg popovich spurs t needs they need something that helps them a little bit dan because what ten of their last fifteen or home because of that rodeo trip that they had to get rid of but do you think it's enough should quiet let come back and they might be able to find their way back into the postseason you tenth your close yeah i mean look the nba star driven i mean the nba of all the leagues are star driven like we all say hey this guy's the greatest coach ever right popovich is still the coach and they don't have the same players and they're not i their tenth so quiet leonard coming back would be huge home games with leonard coming back would be huge but it feels like i don't know how you guys feel but it feels like to me that the spurs have been discombobulated the entire year and the whole choir leonard thing kinda is the face of that it just doesn't seem right it doesn't seem spur like to me this whole year no and they.
