I believe in the message, but I personally believe that not that a knee or a t-shirt is the answer.
the Orlando Magics Jonathan Isaac selected unlike all the other players to be standing on its flat envelopes, when his team having to face the Brooklyn Nets on the night of Saturday, local time.
While all other players went on their knees to stand behind the Black Lives Matter movement, which the Utah Jazz and New Orleans Pelicans players had also done in sæsonpremieren the evening before, refused Isaac.
We had a meeting before the match, and I said to them that they know who I am as a person. They know what I believe in, and they respected me for my decision, he said to the press after the match.
A battle Magic, incidentally, won 128-118.
- For me is black lives helped and supported through the gospel. All life is based on the way. We do all have some things wrong, and sometimes it comes to the point where we point fingers and discuss what is ’wrong’, that is the worst.
- In my opinion tells the Bible us that we all come short before the glory of god. It brings us closer together and is greater than the color of the people. It is bigger than everything that can be seen on the surface and not really reach into the hearts of men and women, he said.

There was otherwise broad support for the movement. Thus was the players ' names on the jerseys switched out with messages like ’Say Their Names’ and ’Equality’.
Pre-match bar all the players jerseys with ’Black Lives Matter’ labeled. Jonathan Isaac carried his own kamptrøje.
There are people who disagree with his decision. But there is certainly also support for his conscious action.
People are protesting in different ways. If someone does not believe that it is the right thing to do, so they don't do it. But now I have no problem with his choice, says Brooklyn's Garrett Temple.
It would show later in the evening, to the San Antonio Spurs’ head coach Gregg Popovich and his assistant, Becky Hammon, also chose to remain standing under the nationalmelodien.
NBA-writer Dane Moore could not really find out what he had to say about the scene.
- I'm right curious here. And I'm waiting patiently for his explanation, he wrote on Twitter.
- To stand up under nationalmelodien is one thing...but apparently he deliberately fails to carry a Black Lives Matter shirt...did not know it.
