    Well, if you knew what Original Communism stood for and what a Planned Economy was.....

    It is a Communist approach with Capitalism at the Front.

    Call it whatever the hell you want, the reaction of the Chinese government is all we need to know.

    Well, the easiest solution would be stop doing business.....exactly what one side is doing now.

    The Government is not understanding that the Rockets and the NBA are separate entities, Morey spoke out as a private person.

    Regrettable. I think I am not the only one being misunderstood at times.

    I think the Chinese government wants Morey to apologize and denounce the HK protests as wrong. Or have the Rockets fire Morey if he doesn’t comply. The NBA obviously cannot force Morey to apologize and the NBA would look really bad if Morey was fired.

    I feel bad for Yao, regardless of how you feel - you can criticise the US for tons of things as well - what he helped to build will seriously be undone to a certain degree.

    China has officially pushed too hard.

    The NBA absolutely cannot capitulate at this point. If China had been even the slightest bit smarter Morey could have been low key fired.

    Instead they went full commie.

    I hope NBA doesn't back down. They can ban the NBA forever.

    China taking away basketball from it's citizens won't end well IMO. They have precious few freedoms already; taking another thing away, I wonder what they will do.

    A lot of people believe that. I'm sorry for your frustration, but you can rest assured that many are misunderstood, especially when it comes to various cultures trying to communicate with one another.

    The tweet is misleading China is stopping all pre season game broadcasts right now. After Silvers press conference thought it very well could be regular season as well

    I'm glad Silver made this latest statement. I'm sorry to see the NBA pulled from CCT; hopefully it's a temporary overreaction. But, given that government's history of ruthless censorship, I won't be surprised if the folks in China can neither see NBA on TV or stream it online for a long time to come.

    China is like a small child throwing an epic tantrum.
