China broke business relationships with Houston Rockets after the team’s GM tweeted in support of Hong Kong protesters. The GM apologized and deleted the tweet but the NBA subsequently came out in support of free speech.
China has a glass ego
South Park did it better
This is the time for the NBA to show show balls and side with Western/American values, and say no to communist China. China actually stands to lose a cashcow that generates billions of dollars for them, they have to start to realise that business is a 2 way street, and their backwards value is not compatible with most of the civilised world.
"We believe that any comments that challenge national sovereignty and social stability are not within the scope of freedom of speech," China Central Television (CCTV) said on its social media account.
Then you obviously don't believe it free speech..
Ever seen Crazy Rich Asians? Chinise are obsessed with materialism and western goods and media. China bans enough stuff and they might just end up with a mainland riot lol
