The NBA’s Johnathan Isaac of the Orlando Magic is going viral for perhaps one of the best responses to the coronavirus vaccine ever.
Isaac is no stranger to rejecting left-wing narratives often pushed by his teammates and has no problem giving them a piece of his mind.
In July of 2020, Isaac was the only player or coach who respectfully stood for the national anthem before his team’s game against the Brooklyn Nets while everyone else kneeled in the restarted season.
While many Americans have become familiar with the ignorant political and scientific rants from players like superstar LeBron James, Isaac’s comments are seemingly well-thought and informed.
“I’m not anti-vax,” Isaac said. ‘I’m not anti-medicine. I’m not anti-science.”
“I didn’t come to my current vaccination status by studying black history or watching Donald Trump press conferences,” he continued.
“I have nothing but the utmost respect for every health care worker in Orlando and all across the world that have worked tirelessly to keep us safe. My mom has worked in health care for a very long time.”
“I thank God I live in a society where vaccines are possible and we can protect ourselves and have the means to protect ourselves in the first place.”
