Jonathan Isaac was really excited for the first game of his NBA career. Like, really excited for it. Everybody knows about those first-game jitters young players go through and it was no different for the 20-year-old who was taken with the sixth overall pick in last summer's draft by the Magic. However, while most players nerves show through on the court, Isaac's took place off of it. Following Isaac's pro debut against the Heat, a 116-109 Orlando victory, he spoke with reporters about dealing with his nerves and eventually getting into the normal flow of a real NBA game. He's fortunate he didn't start though, because he would have pulled off his warmup hoodie to reveal no jersey underneath. Isaac was so nervous about his first game that he forgot his jersey in the locker room. "I didn't even put my jersey on. I was on the bench and I completely forgot my jersey. I didn't even put it on," Isaac said.
