    Wow

    In Tokyo, where the team is playing two exhibition matches this week, Harden distanced himself from the controversy.

    "We apologise. We love China," he said, standing alongside fellow Rockets guard Russell Westbrook.

    "We love playing there. Both of us, we go there once or twice a year. They show us most support so we appreciate them."

    DM DM what have you done, just man up and step down, leave the players alone.

    See...this is what collectivism does. Harden has to bend the knee for effectively what his coworker said. Everyone is jointly responsible for Morey saying he believes in freedom.

    And don’t kid yourself...in collectivist societies, an entire family can be wiped out for what one family member says.

    disappointing

    This is Les fault for making China more important than Houston
    No matter what a hole thing Tilman does he didn’t start this
    I’m fine for other countries rooting for the Rockets but when you bend backwards to a country that has different values than you this is what could happen

    Daryl's move is really a "smart" political tool.

    On the one hand, he was disgusted with us Chinese.
    On the other hand, it also encourages your American people to have a worse and worse impression on China. Even the hardened apology of harden is obviously a very gentlemanly act and has been misled into a cause for deepening the gap between the Chinese and American peoples.
    At last, he thought he did nothing, even flaunting his voice for freedom.

    I think he will be a very good politician in the future.

    I wish Harden and Westbrook would have tweeted their support for Hong Kong to see what the NBA would do.

    CCP would be smart to take this and run with it as the official apology by the NBA and tell the Chinese fans to shut up about it via its state media.

    You've got major issues if you think he was disgusted with the Chinese people.
