ESPN Radio host Dan Le Batard has apologized for a Twitter poll asking if the knee injury suffered Sunday by Christian NBA player Jonathan Isaac, who cited the Gospel last week for his unwillingness to kneel or wear a Black Lives Matter shirt, was “funny”. 

Isaac, a forward for the Orlando Magic, was the only player not to kneel for the national anthem during a game last week. On Friday, he referenced his faith and personal beliefs to answer criticism for not kneeling during the anthem.
