    I remember when we got him I was so excited thinking he was the missing piece but obviously things were not as it appeared

    Morey tried to mentor Lawson and Ty took it the wrong way.

    Uhg!
    First of all... it's really sad when you've got no other option but to go to a strip club in China.
    Gotta be the worst strip club experience ever!
    I would give dollar bills for those dancers to get off me.
    2ND.. F*** China and their Sorghum at this point.

    Fast food chains are global. To the dismay of health officials, cupcakes are turning into full cakes everywhere. He could have said: "I'm having a nice time with this pleasant lady" :p. Instead he generalized all Chinese women with the stereotype of flat behinds. He meant it as a compliment, but it was a backhanded compliment.

    As sexualized repressed as the U.S., China is more. These type of things go on; but you don't have to be from China to know you don't flaunt it, at least not publicly. I don't know if he likes playing ball there or getting a check, if you're famous and don't want that negative attention, why would out yourself like that.

    This is a Danuel House bone head type of move.

    It was crazy how quickly he turned into a bum once he got here.

    Danuel's move was dumber because he is actually good at basketball.

    That was a joke. Morey mentored Lawson in the department of "Offending China" but Lawson did it with the wrong thing.

    With the trade wars going on, everything American seems to be offensive.

    Hope for more peaceful times and relations.

    I still don’t understand the “uproar.” What did he say that was so terrible? I genuinely don’t understand the cake thing. What am I missing?

    He literally did the opposite of that...and that's a white stereotype anyway. The Asian stereotype is more about breasts

    Without the pic you could argue he wrote some anecdotal content about booties.

    These are sensitive times.
    They want clean American ballers.

    They are prolly treating it like the House situation but words speak louder than actions for the CBA representatives.

    They didn't like him sexualizing their women for the world to see.

    But aren’t all women, in one form or another, sexualized? As for the world, aren’t they slightly more than half it’s population? I’m left wondering if I have always misunderstood Marie Antoinette’s remark, “Let them eat cake.”

    I wasn’t going to say it, but (IMO) they didn’t like a black man openly sexualizing their women. I base this on all of the Nasty racist comments made by Chinese citizens In regards to this. Lots of N this, Monkey that....
