    Yet just a couple of sentences earlier they say that Silver is a fighter for free speech, which “has crossed the bottom line of the Chinese people,” and is apparently unforgivable.

    The irony of the guy saying Silver is trying to paint the Chinese government as unforgiving when they clearly cant forgive him.

    Stupid Silver clearly wasn't educated on the issue.

    Silver handled that interview extremely well in my opinion. I especially liked his final remark about whats next, "The season, it starts on Tuesday, back to basketball"...

    To those who say cut all ties with China, should the rest of the world cut ties with the US over the way it does business, handles it’s foreign affairs, does not comply with international humanitarian standards and uses its acquired power to bully, perpetuate imperialism etc?

    Absolutely.

    If the US behaves the way China does, the US will suffer similar repercussions.

    No it won’t and that’s the problem. The US has gotten away with more human rights violations, land grabbing, genocide, war crimes and slave labour probably than any nation as they currently exist so not talking kingdoms, tribes, etc.

    If China doesn't want to be painted as unforgiving then they could simply forgive the Rockets and the NBA and move on.

    It's really up to them ultimately, the NBA would love to ignore that any of this ever happened.

    Well, if Trump ever forces American TV stations to stop broadcasting the Premier League because some Premier League player/executive said something bad about America, then yes, then I believe the Premier League should pull out of the US.

    Until then, let's not use false equivalencies as whatever misgivings you have about American government or people, it's not nearly to the extent that China has done either domestically or internationally.

    It’s actually the other way around. America basically controls the world media and business networks. America dominates not just by power (1000+ military bases everywhere), but by soft-power: pseudo-ideologies, news narratives, news fabrication, and a lot of these through academics and entertainment also.

    Also, American involvement in most countries were never by choice to begin with, they were mostly by force and unwelcomed.

    So America will never need to publicly “force” any sanction. America simply sanctions, without a blip. In fact, it happens everyday. The media platform is unilaterally reserved for the agenda. Dissidents almost never get any exposure.
