    I bet secretly morey is in his house or car etc laughing at what all has happened.
    This is absolutely insane.
    Some dude went to jail in china over his love of the rockets. This is getting weird too.

    Like none of us thought anything like this when we first took our sip of olajuwater and laced up our etonics. Little did we know it was going to f**ucking mean something someday thats right biotch go rockets

    What about former Rocket Shane Battier, this could affect him somehow... someway? Ok, I'll see myself out.

    yeah nobody wears this crap here, I'm sure it's for their market

    China should ban air and water as well, NBA players use them too

    Imagine being D Wade. Recently retired and just inked a lifetime contract. It’s f’d upped that these players have to the hit, while big business that sells out to China don’t even get a mention. I don’t see the point in gloating about players losing money. The players are not villains.

    I would about to say Who Cares... Anta is a **** brand anyways.

    As are all the other names on there. Stolen and cloned based on American business.

    But the tidbit about Klay Thomson is fantastic!
