    Geez, i thought America have "freedom of speech." Now Lebron said something they don't like, they start attacking him, how is this different the other side attacking Morey's tweet from China? Nothing difference. C'mon guy, he's using his "FREEDOM OF SPEECH," he has the right to say anything lol.

    I don’t think you understand freedom of speech at all. It’s ok, it’s not your fault.

    u angry Chinese fans bring this nonsense up every time and it’s so stupid

    Is Lebron about to get thrown in jail for his statements? No. His freedom of speech is being exercised, he just fcked up by making the wrong statement.

    No one can ever convince anyone online. We all enjoy venting though.

    Imagine if the manager for Manchester United tweeted "the Iraq War was unjustified" or "impeach the orange child" and then the US federal government forced NBC to drop all Premiere League coverage and force Nike and Adidas to cease selling Premier League gear.

    No you can't imagine that because the United States isn't an autocratic regime. The Chinese government is effectively limiting speech using financial leverage from amoral US corporations. I'm not here to pretend that this isn't a two way street. The only reason China has this much influence with speech in Western democracies is because of amoral corporations that exist in these Western nations.

    Do you think Americans can trust fair news coverage of human rights matters in China from outlets like ABC News who are owned by Disney who own Marvel and Start Wars and want to make an immense amount of money in China with those brands?

    Corporations in the US are effectively turning into spokespeople for the Chinese government and the majority of Americans are employed by these corporations. We need to work. So yes, this effectively limits speech and it's from a foreign autocratic government.

    Nobody get thrown in jail for the using the Godly "freedom of speech" until......he offended people like you. And I am sure as he create more haters like you, there is no doubt they will beat him, mob him on the street if they ever meet.

    “Nike pulled a new line of sports shoes from its stores in China in June because of a backlash against the company on Chinese social media. The cause of the offense? An Instagram post by the brand’s Japanese designer that supported anti-Beijing protesters in Hong Kong.”

    Nike also removed Rockets merchandise from its Chinese stores.

    We already know Adam Silver is hoping and praying that the NBA’s relationship with China can be restored because he’s not trying to lose that revenue stream.

    his decision to go to the lakers (which punted his chance of ever winning another ring), and with these comments today... man, lebron... you never ever really cared about winning... whether it comes to basketball, or just life in general. it's always about brand image with you... chasing money when you already have enough. you were one of my fav players in the league.. but going to the lakers was a first strike - pretty much showing everyone that you're quitting and that you no longer have any desire to compete. and now you've completely sold yourself out to a human rights abusing communist country. mj never spoke out on social issues... but at least he never disgraced himself like this.

    I would resign if I was Morey tomorrow.

    If the players are campaigning against you, you can't do your GM job properly and you will get fired anyway soon.

    But resigning right now will fck them for good, especially the main culprit Lebron.

    Screw the league and screw Lebron.

    I’m not going to ask the nba to cancel the Lakers
    Because LeBron is pandering to China

    I got to see them lose

    And LeBron speaks for himself not the entire league or all of America or all black People

    there’s no Borg like mentality
    That’s what free speech means
    We can think as individuals
