The Tim Tebow of Basketball


Imagine if Tim Tebow was actually great in football. Jonathan Issac in his third year in the league has showed he is one of the future stars of the NBA, and been nicknamed “The Minister of Defense” for his dominance on defense . The 6’10 small forward has drawn comparisons to Kevin Durant, Paul George, and Giannis Antetokounmpo. He is a Pastor and coincidentally, he plays for the Orlando Magic and is also a Florida native. He is a devout Christian and has a strong religious message similar to Tim Tebow. The “Minister of Defense” didn’t have a decorated college career such as Tebow but is reminiscent of Anthony Davis in college who wasn’t aggressive offensively but has a better jump shot. He lacks aggression on offense but it is often because he is the last option on the court for the team and if the Orlando Magic front office is smart they will start building their team around him opposed to their fake veterans.
