Magic F Jonathan Isaac was so nervous to make NBA debut he forgot to put on jersey
Jonathan Isaac may have had some slight butterflies prior to making his NBA debut on Wednesday against the Miami Heat.
In a video shared to Twitter by Orlando Magic teammate Bismack Biyombo on Friday, the rookie forward sat on the bench for the team’s season opener having forgotten to wear a jersey underneath his warmups. He quickly ran to the locker room to put one on upon realizing his mistake.

The 20-year-old Isaac, who was picked No. 6 overall in this year’s draft, would eventually check in at the 3:10 mark of the first quarter. He finished with a respectable four points, eight rebounds, and two blocks in 17 minutes on the evening as the Magic picked up the 116-109 victory.
We’ve seen some similar mishaps in baseball before, but in any case, at least Isaac now has a heck of a story to tell about his professional debut.
