Ep. 126 - Jonathan IsaacThe Sunday Special•May 21, 2022
Following the death of George Floyd, politics within the NBA intensified. Players, coaches, and staff throughout the league donned shirts with the words “Black Lives Matter” and kneeled during the game opening national anthem performances as a form of protest.
Our guest today entered the national spotlight when he decided to go against that. Jonathan Isaac joins me to discuss what it was like to stand up for his beliefs while having his contract in the works and his career at stake.
In his new book, Why I Stand, Jonathan has told his story– navigating the NBA’s vaccine requirements, BLM, his injuries, and other challenges. In our episode, Jonathan and I get into the significant choices and risks that have made his journey encouraging for so many others.
