    If that is their reaction it only means it was coming down the road sooner or later. Imagine Trump baning NBA games in USA for LeBron talking **** about him. That is what China is doing and they can go **** themselfs with their money because life is not only about it

    Man, If you thought the NBA wasn't messing with the Rockets before, Now they really aren't messing with the Rockets. I can only imagine the conversations Silver and Morey had in private. If Morey is still the Rockets GM, the trade deadline going to be bleak as f-ck.

    You'll have to explain that one to me …. He potentially cost the league billions of dollars.

    There are no first amendment rights at play here.


    I think Morey's one of the best GM's in professional sports but …. He'll be lucky to survive this.

    I thought Morey was on the way out the door before this happened but now he basically has more incentive to stay.

    WIN WIN WIN

    The Rockets are no longer China's team. We are now America's team.

    Inspirational Quotes By Martin Luther King Jr. About Speaking Up When It Matters


    1. "The hottest place in Hell is reserved for those who remain neutral in times of great moral conflict."
    2. "Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness."
    3. "Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity."
    4. "If a man has not discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live."
    5. "A nation or civilization that continues to produce soft-minded men purchases its own spiritual death on the installment plan."
    6. "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."
    7. "Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'"
    8. "The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."
    9. "The first question which the priest and the Levite asked was: 'If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?' But... the good Samaritan reversed the question: 'If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?'"
    10. "An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity."
    11. "He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it."
    12. "In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends."
    13. "Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will."
    14. "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."
    15. "The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people."
    16. "There comes a time when silence is betrayal."
    17. "We may have all come on different ships, but we're in the same boat now."

    Morey makes a few anti-Trump tweets that few people see and like and nobody gives a crap. Morey makes one tweet, but China being snowflakes decides to make it an international crisis. Bravo China you just played yourselves.

    Oh well, Tump did call for boycott NFL after players kneeling during National anthem.

    That tweet from Morey to Chinese government and a lot Chinese people is like a tweet with racial slur to US black people. Different culture, different perspective and different reaction by different people. No surprise here.

    What really surprised me is as one of the smartest GMs in NBA Morey was so stupid to not consider the consequence before he tweeted.

    I mean if you really think about it, he and Rockets may have lost support of China but they gained support from everyone else globally. He is like the only person to get the Republicans and Democrats to agree on something. We can thank China for throwing a hissy fit.

    Any distractions from Lakers or pelicans is a positive for Houston.

    "they gained support from everyone else globally" ? LOL. Who else cares about this except NBA, NBA fans, Chinese people and Chinese government?
    I see a lot people losing money, nobody gains.

    Nah, it would be equivalent if Trump decided to use his presidential power to ban the NFL completely because of a slight.

    Morey may have chosen a controversial position, but the Chinese government completely escalated this mess themselves because of one man's opinion that here in the US no one cared about until now. And now both sides are amped up. All because of one man's now deleted tweet.

    Trump would if he could.

    It's not entirely on China. Think about this: After Donald Sterling's unauthorized private conversation was posted, he gets banned from NBA for life.

    There are red lines you can't touch without consequences, some in US, some in China, some in other countries. Sterling touch the red line of US, Morey touched the red line of China.

    The red line has been there for a long time, whoever touches it without thinking twice is the real cause of the controversy.
