    Franz Ferdinand is the appropriate analogy. He was the hapless guy just going through his daily business trying to to work things out for everybody when some angry kid being manipulated by others for their own gain shot him out of nowhere.

    Morey is definately the assassinated symbol on this story, not the assassin.

    Honestly I am surprised people are surprised by or unsure of the reaction from Yao. Basketball is great and all but this is serious stuff man!

    Yes.... let’s completely forget the CCP having a complete emotional breakdown and hissy fit like a toddler over a single tweet by a single GM of a basketball team.

    This is like saying the one being abused provoked the abuser. Stop the nonsense.

    It's the fact that he operates in a shade of grey that makes it hard to navigate. The guy is also very kind, everybody loved him, he gave his heart and soul to basketball. When you juxtapose that against the backdrop of nationalism, greed, and disinformation and him being an agent for that, those two identities are hard to meld together. But that's who he is. He loves his nation to a fault, and will back them accordingly. Always has. Always will. It doesn't detract from the good he's done in my book either.

    I have no idea how much of the professed anger is real, and how much is for show.

    Suddenly I want the Chinese government version of @cyberx.

    no, I meant that people shouldn't expect Yao to take loyalty to the rockets more seriously than loyalty to his country.

    I don't think Yao has any choice but to be extremely hot. What's he supposed to do? Have the Chinese government be mad and he be all "aw, it wasn't anything, let's have drinks"? lol.

    I will not allow people to bash Yao over this.

    The truth is he will never be able to voice his real opinion anyway. I believe he loves Houston and loves China. He's not dumb either, he lived in the US from 22 to 31, he probably has a much less brain washed opinion on these matter than other netizens.

    He would have made a public statement by now condemning Morey if he really felt strongly by it. If anything he's just annoyed he got put in the middle of all of this and want this to be over.

    He's probably disappointed most Rockets fans are Trump supporters.

    Here's Fengdi admonishing Yao's nonchallant stance at the dinner table.

    His parents never trusted the Rockets.

    the thing is whether it's genuine or not is hard to figure out. in those totalitarian countries you have to put on a performance or you might be accused of not being sufficiently loyal. like those north koreans crying at dear leader's funeral.
