    It will be interesting to see what happens.. Will the NBA back his right to free speech/speaking his mind like they said in regards to LeBron/Curry on Trump, or will they burn him because China is a huge money maker?

    Amen.

    People need to pay attention to what is going on and not tolerate it.

    No matter what, Morey you are in big trouble.

    Rockets new season will be ruined by Morey’s stupidity.

    I can't express how important it is for actual Rocket fans, the ones born and raised as Rocket fans to stand behind Morey at this point.

    I love the dichotomy here.

    American nationalism = patriotism

    Chinese nationalism = CCP brain washing

    It's a literal trope of the dumb American with no conception of the outside world.

    Our **** for brains president is going through an impeachment inquiry and is most likely going to be voted out in 2020.

    The Chinese president just eliminated tenr limits and is president for life and has almost 2 million humans including children in camps only because of their ethnicity.

    **** off.

    It will be what Tilman chooses to do.

    China has a recent history of attacking any business or person that is prominent in a business that offers a less than glowing opinion of China.

    The CCP will not stop complaining and protesting. There is a good chance this ends with Morey fired. China will put pressure on the NBA and will not allow things like the Rockets to play the Sharks or market in China. They may even limit Harden and Addidas.

    If Tilman bows to China that really tells you all you need to know about him as a human.. That goes way beyond being a penny pincher.

    This is the literal trope of the brainwashed, thin skinned Chinese that has been exposed to so much propaganda that they set aside reality to protect the CCP.

    I also stand with Morey. Tillman is the biggest idiot alive if he does this. Dude can’t wipe his own butt without Morey. Don’t punish a man for saying what’s right,

    Personally, I think that was pretty brave of Morey. He’s not an idiot. He knows the Rockets unique standing in China.

    But he still did it. I can’t really see how Tillman fires him, at least not immediately, but he’s definitely not happy.

    Every country and culture is susceptible to it. It’s part of our in group preference bias. But don’t make the assumption that criticism of the CCP is a defense of American nationalism. Someone can criticize Trump and not be a modern democrat.

    If Morey is fired he’d have another job before the ink is dry.

    Tilman’s made this issue a freaking front page story for no good reason.

    The last thing an owner of a major professional sports organization should do is throw their GM under the bus. That’s what Tilman did tonight in front of millions.

    He’s lost the remainder of the benefit of the doubt I had for him. If the team loses Morey because of this I will be furious.
