    Guess what geniuses

    If you asked literally every person in the NBA - or actually the entire USA - whether they were in on the side of the pro Democracy protesters in HK or the authoritarians from Beijing - most people who would have an opinion would favor HK. Probably like 80-90%.

    This probably even includes the racist cretin Trump supporters who actually support authoritarian rule in the US

    So go ahead and ban us all CBA.

    I know ill surely miss never noticing your existence.

    The news said : we are really sorry to our fans that our team (Sharks) just lost by 69 points to the Rockets in a forking preseason of preseason game. This number is insulting and we believe Morey planned this and we now have decided until Morey will apologize why he won’t score one more point to let us lose by 70. We will not come back to let our asses get kicked again next year.

    "The general manager of the Houston Rockets, Morey, publicly made inappropriate comments about Hong Kong yesterday. The Chinese Basketball Association strongly oppose to it and will suspend exchanges and cooperation with the Rockets."

    apparently this is saying that Tencent will no longer air any Rockets games or report Rockets news...anyone who knows Chinese on here can confirm since I have no idea what these symbols mean

    Guess they found out there are so many Astros fans in China also and they are busy following the playoff and the rating of the Rockets preseason games is terrible and hence pull the plug.

    Lol.

    Xi and his Commie regime sure are touchy these days. Being willing to potentially intimidate US born or former NBA players from coming to play in the CBA is a huge risk for their league to survive. People in China watch the games because of stars like Marbury and TMac. Their stance here to intimidate the NBA (assuming that’s the translations meaning), will have a cooling effect on potential players for sure.

    If Fertitta placates to China over this and makes Morey do something ridiculous like apologize, ill be done ever eating at one of his sh$tty restaurants ever again.

    Here are excerpts of some of Chinese state media's comments on Morey today:

    CCTV:
    "The general manager of the Houston Rockets, Daryl Morey, published a message yesterday on social media to support Hong Kong independence. It was a slogan screamed by the violent people in Hong Kong in recent months.

    Is Morey unfamiliar with China? No, he is the general manager of the Rockets, a team with many Chinese fans because of Yao Ming. Even after Yao Ming retired, the majority of Chinese fans still root for the Rockets. The Rockets have been benefited by waves after waves of Chinese sponsorship. He has many years of Chinese experience and it is impossible that he didn't understand how it would hurt the feelings of hundreds of millions of Chinese people. He did it on purpose.You hurt our feelings and didn't even apologize?

    Basketball is just basketball. But our motherland must be loved deeply."

    People's Daily:

    "Hong Kong is China's Hong Kong. In the movie "My People, My Country", the scene of the five-star red flag rising on time in Hong Kong on July 1, 1997 at 0:00, made hundreds of millions of people shed tears, and made the Chinese children who have experienced hardships and perseverance become more convinced: The era of being bullied by the Western powers is gone forever! ToAnyone who wants to challenge "one country, two systems" and challenge the soverignty of China: we will never budge! Daryl Morey, challenging Chinese people's bottom line will get you nowhere!"

    No you are out of luck.

    It’s been sold out.

    CBA fans believe the enemy of our enemy is our friend.

    DMo is getting a 10 years new max contract in the CBA and Armstrong is on his way there.

    Damn, when the D&D meets the Rockets forum. Well screw China for not honoring the Hong Kong deal with Britain. Every time you turn around China's trying to finesse someone into doing what they want. **** China, **** Communist, and **** Fake Fans.

    They should ban Lin too.. ex rocket after all. Morey gave him a sweet contract - Lin must be Daryl's spy. Come on CCP and president Xi, think!

    I have to give Morey credit for having balls made of steel. He speaking out like that was extremely gutsy.

    I'm sure that Tilman is lighting into him this morning. I cant imagine how much money he just lost. I'm proud of Daryl, but i fear that Tilman may do something emotional. This whole thing is sad.
