    Let's imagine if we were Rocket fans in the 40s after discovering about the concentration camps, and German Nationals for some reason were massive fans of the Rockets and the Rockets gm criticized the Nazi regime and people were upset over it.

    That is what this is equivalent of. There is no valid point here. If you want to leave Rockets fandom because our gm criticized a nation that is currently forcing 2 million humans in rededucation camps forcing them to convert out of their religion then you are in the wrong. Not just in the wrong, but also morally repugnant.

    There is no valid point here.

    Okay only thing im making a stand on is those saying real fans need to be local Houston fans.

    NBA is a global game and as an Australian who fell in love with basketball through Hakeem in the early 90s. Celebrated the 'ships. And was devastated we never saw Olajuwon vs Jordan in the finals.

    Got excited then pessimistic for the Francis era. Believed in the Yao / Tmac era. And now rolling through the ups and downs of the Harden era.

    But unfortunately has only been to 1 game. (In Golden State when both teams sucked (early 10s)

    Kind of annoying to see my fandom disparaged

    Goodbye. However, if you ever change your mind, you’re welcome to come back. We have this thing called “freedom of speech.” It’s imperfect. You sometimes run into people who use that freedom in order to abuse others, but that doesn’t describe Daryl Morey. I think we’re lucky to have the guy as our GM, and I hope he remains with the Rockets for many, many years.

    I guess he’s trying to earn points with the CCP. It is his atonement. What a sad, sad fellow. I hope he doesn’t end up in a forced labor camp. Maybe his “farewell” post will save him.

    (Whoops - double post!)

    To abandon a team over something like, supporting democracy as an american, we should not be ok with. It's a terrible reason to do anything and it goes against our very core. Democracy is our gift to the world. Respect that.

    Buh-Bye.

    Uncle Les is gone. Thankfully, the Chinese govt. has less and less influence on the HOUSTON Rockets each year. Please drum up as much support to boycott the Rockets in China as possible. It's time for the team to focus on the fans at home for a while.

    I think most of you are already on the Warriors bandwagon anyway.

    I think they actually believe and feel this stuff. It isnt some kind of theater. PRC has succeeded in imprinting their priorities on the population.

    You keep on talking about two mil people were held in concentration campscamps. I studied and lived years in China and western societies. I get to read different sources. I cannot say the same about you. Do you even understand the Chinese language? Have you ever set foot in China?
    Perhaps you have been brainwashed.

    The only other thing I want to comment regarding the retirement of OP from CF is :

    I really hope you actually used a Huawei but not an Apple cellphone to type this farewell message.
