    He's an American citizen and can say whatever the hell he wants per the 1st amendment.

    Maybe he was thinking about all the people of Hong Kong who are being oppressed. Maybe he's thinking about their children and unborn children and future generations. Morey doesn't serve Stephen A Smith's visions of the world, he serves his own.

    Sometimes SAS should let the dork elvises shake up the world unopposed. Is Stephen A Smith for oppression of Hong Kong citizens? Are those people not worth listening to? This is about an oppressive government and people who want to be heard. Taking a side against Morey really looks like you're encouraging oppression.

    This. I'd argue that standing up for freedom is something one does precisely because you're thinking of others; not dollars.

    Kind of ironic coming from a loud mouth who whines and cries all day... especially when she doesn’t get her way....

    Stephen A Smith is the type of dude that would make sure his ass was living inside masters house 200 years ago. Dude would be telling on his brother and sister to avoid working outside.

    This is the same guy that said that when a man abuses a woman it is on the woman and then double downed on it.

    Not surprised the modern day Don King feels this way... but he is entitled to his opinion just like he has the right to vote for Trump again.

    He starts by saying he has nothing to say and then proceeds to don the persona of Screamin A. Smith. That just kills me.

    "Did anybody take a moment to think about what this may have done to Yao Ming?" That line is meme-worthy. Think of the children!

    Since when speaking from the heart is a crime? SAS talk **** about other people everyday, but calls DM talking **** to China childish? He should be ashamed of himself!

    It's not just SAS, all of ESPN is basically backing China at this point. I wonder why? :rolleyes:

    This was the biggest sports topic the last 24 hours and ESPN has barely aired anything related to it.

    If Morey was standing up for freedom, he'd have that tweet 100 days ago, or 20 years ago, or 100 years ago when HK was a British colony. Also there would be way more standing up stuff than just one single picture, which later was deleted. That's not standing up.

    If Morey was standing up for freedom, he'd have tweeted something he knew, something happening in his own country, right in Texas. His tweeter should be filled with discussions on children in cages and dying immigrants.

    Morey was just in the mood of anti-china and found a cool picture. Thats' it.

    SAS could argue with a refrigerator about the behavior of his dust pan

    You would do well to remember that being pro-Hong Kong does not mean you are anti-China.

    He's right. Morey's childish & I've been saying for YEARS that he talks too much. Does too many interviews & comes across as a guy that thinks he knows everything because his calculator says so. He's a good GM but is not worth this debacle

    I have just copied and pasted your post to a large group of angry Chinese Rockets fans.

    Well said.

    He doesn't want to get on China's bad side, working for ESPN. No integrity.
