Magic’s Jonathan Isaac Jersey Sales Surge After He Stands for National Anthem

After the Magic’s Jonathan Isaac became the first NBA player to stand for the national anthem last week, Top Ball coverage says Isaac’s jersey sales have skyrocketed. Isaac is now number 2 in jersey sales, only behind Lakers star LeBron James.

Isaac explained his decision to not wear a Black Lives Matter shirt or to kneel during the National Anthem to Bleacher Report, saying: “I believes that Black Lives Matter. A lot went into my decision. I thought that kneeling or wearing the Black Lives Matter shirt doesn’t go hand-in-hand with supporting Black lives.”

Why do you think Isaac’s jersey is selling so fast? Who do you think are buying the jerseys?
