    Tilman would have fired him a week ago if he was going to do it over this and the fact he is still here tells me he isn't going anywhere.

    FK China! They screw the US every chance they get in trade, in intellectual copyright theft and they treat their people like crap. If they don’t like our way don’t play with us. We shouldn’t have to bow to their will. This is our game. They want to be involved they need to learn to deal with our way of life starting with free speech.

    Just speculative, and conversational.

    I don't want him to resign, but I could honestly see him doing it - as he is a stand up guy.....and it may be that he thinks this is the only way out.

    "Hello, I am Morey, today I have decided to resign for the betterment of the league and for the sake of the players. I, Morey cause this fire and it is only I that can put it out. To all the Chinese fans, I am so sorry that this have escalated into an international scale. It has been hard for me the last few days. I couldn't eat, sleep and drink properly. I am started to vomit everywhere! And I now starting to develop this "fear" of what "if" i go out and would the fans howl at me. My thought of losing the team support from the many fans in China through out the years suddenly struck at the heart and it causes me to curl into a depressive state. I have to do this, there is no way around it. Without the league wide support, I do not think i can move forward. Me out"

    ---Morey

    I thought it was a totally fair post. It's certainly not that outlandish a thought.

    China is controlled by one party - this is a country that takes it's religious minorities and harvests them for organs. This is a country in which the conviction rate in its "courts" is greater than 90%. This is a country where speaking out or criticizing the country or the party is a grave offense.

    People insult America all the time, we don't ban their sport for it.

    Nice signature. When was the last time you were a real Rockets fan?

    Only reason Morey resigns from the Rockets is if he has another deal lined up.
    He'd be working tomorrow if he decided to leave.

    They're estimating a 15% pay cut on all nba players. Oof... those players going to be pissed. They didn't even say anything.

    By religious minorities, do you mean the cult?

    It was not perceived as apology. "I would hope you know it was not my intention to get you upset" is very different from "I an sorry for having made you upset"

    Many have even suggested these tweets are doubling down on the original message. It's fair to say they failed as apology

    Another reason Morey might eventually decide to resign: This is probably not much fun right now, and it could remain not fun for quite a while. Eventually, that's gotta get to you.
