    Ya Dude, we should all speak out for liberty everyday! Now go tell your boss about all the human rights violations at your office.

    Why the F does every American think it is his job to liberate the entire world, even places you can't find on a map that speak languages you don't understand.

    Nah I suspect he did it for his own Brand and not for anyone else (ie Morey). He just didn't want his Brand to get tarnished by the association with Morey/Rockets etc.

    Pretty sure Harden was coached by the NBA front office on how to respond to this question.

    I really doubt this was James expressing his full feelings on the matter.

    I’m disappointed that he took the stance of unconditional apology, but it’s not my millions

    Harden is getting paid at least 400-500mils for the rest of his career. Doubt he cares about $? He has been visiting China a couple times a year perhaps for the last 10 years. Is there a possibility that He is telling from his own experience?

    He might think, I did go there, they treated me well, handed me money, I am an athlete first and not a politician.

    I worry about HK when I get there, hope those b-ball interested ones are not going to mind and quick to forget.

    Not every american only. People from free democratic developed countries. It is the moral duty from one human to another.

    There's one MASSIVE problem with your line of thinking:
    you assume we know all the answers.

    你的汉语怎么样?你都不会汉语,还要解决中国的问题。。。。

    And I don’t think harden knew exactly what was going on
    Someone had to tell him the update and he spoke to cool down the situation

    pretty sure he was thinking of just hoops before all of this has happened

    I would highly suggest you look into the history of the golden spike and the role of 15,000 Chinese workers in the transcontinental railroad. A statement like this might be construed as ignorant and historically inaccurate.

    Seriously?

    Do you go out of the US often? You are saying businesses have an obligation to conduct themselves outside of the US in certain moral principles not required by US Law.

    Identify those moral principles, and I will tell you how many US companies should shut down overseas.

    Nothing better than starting a post with "Every". You have an agenda. Great. Go away. This is not a black and white issue. I will go out on a limb and guess that you don't like uppity people and their political agendas. Great. The white team doesn't want you on it.
