Jonathan Isaac played just seven minutes on Monday. And yet, he was trending on Twitter.
That’s what happens when it’s your first time in an NBA game in over seven months and you come out in instant All-Star form.
Isaac had 13 points, seven rebounds and two steals; he shot 5-for-6 from the field, knocking down both three-point attempts, one of which he got fouled on; and teamed with Markelle Fultz to power the Magic on a 22-2 run.
That is a jam-packed seven minutes.
Twitter responded. And as always, the tweets speak for themselves...

Jonathan Isaac doesn't look much like a player who's been sidelined since New Year's Day by a knee injury. He's been the best player on the court since he checked in, including a four-point play.— Kevin Pelton (@kpelton) July 27, 2020
Is there still time for Jonathan Isaac to make that MIP/DPOY case, because uh— Blake Murphy (@BlakeMurphyODC) July 27, 2020

It's good the NBA closed the MVP voting now and the 8 seeding games don't count otherwise Jonathan Isaac was coming for that thing.— Keith Smith (@KeithSmithNBA) July 27, 2020

Jonathan Isaac and Markelle Fultz are the future of the Orlando Magic.— Michelle (@michellebgl_) July 27, 2020
I've been saying it and I'll say it again.
You gotta wonder if Fultz and Isaac will split too many MVP votes next year for one of them to win the award. Oh well, it's a team game.— Kevin Clark (@bykevinclark) July 27, 2020
Hope you still have some of your Jonathan Isaac stock— #RingerNBA (@ringernba) July 27, 2020

jonathan isaac would’ve won defensive player of the year this season if he hadn’t gotten injured.
Jonathan Isaac is a 7 footer that can lock down anyone in the league and score from anywhere. Basketball was literally invented for Isaac.— ™ (@PlayoffMarkelle) July 28, 2020
