ESPN radio host Dan Le Batard apologizes for social media poll about Jonathan Isaac’s knee injury

ESPN’s Dan Le Batard apologized for a tasteless poll question regarding Orlando Magic forward Jonathan Isaac, who tore the ACL in his left knee two days after standing for the national anthem while his teammates kneeled.

The Le Batard radio show Twitter account posted this question: “#poll Is it funny the guy who refused to kneel immediately blew out his knee?”

Even if you disagree with Isaac’s decision and his reasoning, it’s crass to relish in a player’s season-ending injury. Le Batard recognized the error in judgment.
