The Daily Wire announced Monday morning that NBA star and outspoken Christian Jonathan Isaac will publish his first book with the media company’s imprint, DW Books. Isaac was the sixth pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, taken by Orlando Magic. In July of 2020, he was one of the only the NBA players to stand for the national anthem as other players kneeled during league-wide demonstrations for the Black Lives Matter movement. The book titled, “Why I Stand,” shares Isaac’s story of how, through a series of divine connections and unwavering faith, he found the courage to stand for his beliefs in the face of unprecedented pressure to follow the crowd.

Grant Hill went 657 days between games for the @Orlando Magic. (Jan 16, 2003 – Nov 3, 2004).
Jonathan Isaac is at 526 days, hasn’t played since Aug. 2, 2020.
Markelle Fultz is at 368 days, hasn’t played since Jan 6, 2021.
It’s a shame what injuries has done to their careers. – 1:20 PM
