    The Rockets are always on the right side.

    All Rockets fans stand with Morey.

    The OP and this video are ridiculous, if you were convinced by the logic in that video that is scary. It does not matter what a communist country determines is the bottom line, we do not need to succumb to inhumane ideas because it hurts their feelings. Darryl made a comment on American soil and is protected by our laws, we do not need to follow what the CCP says ever. The analogy of using the N word vs. promoting the safety of people is highly insulting as well, I have no idea how these people made this connection or chose this analogy because it literally makes no sense. The analogy of a hypothetical scenario where CA would be annexed, also this is idiotic logic because a large majority of CA is not desperately trying to free themselves from a communist regime, if they were and the US was preventing it, no one here would care what someone in China said about it, they would be supporting freedom. The Chinese people also enslave millions of uyghur's and force them into labor camps, does that mean we can not speak out against it as American's or is that crossing the line as well? If you are doing something disgustingly inhumane, you can not hide behind some cultural wall and claim that anyone speaking against it needs to be punished. I think it is very hard for them to understand this concept because they have never been given these freedoms. Making any sort of apology or backing down would be a massive mistake on the NBA and Darryl's part. You are talking about giving into communist pressure to be just like them, for what? A dollar?

    My guess is that the NBA is looking to expand worldwide, I think it makes sense to expand to countries that are democratic and avoid communist countries. Expand to India, continue efforts in countries in Africa as well. China is not a place where NBA talent will come from, so it is better to expand to areas where they can recruit talent. No single country will replace the revenue of China, but I believe making it an international sport they will easily be able to reach their goals for growth. China did not miraculously become obsessed with the NBA, the NBA invested in China and received returns on that investment. This can be done other places and currently is. I am Ok with losing the China partnership.

    all the more reason to support daryl on that matter, because theres even a minority here growing thinking ccp is right and in our country we should arrest someone for that kind of thing.

    We have freedom of speech these days?
    When China appologizes for killing "their own people/citizens" like that little 15 yr old girl then we can have a civilized discussion. Until then F China's government and their Wuhan testing lab!

    F China

    They either put a plague on the world

    Or decided to withhold info and profit after a plague got loose in their country.

    We dont know because the Cinese wont let anybody in the lab that the virus originated from. Ask yourself why that may be?

    I think I am living under a rock. Who got arrested for saying something?

    What do you think about the WMD fiasco a few years back. I think we killed more than 15 children back then

    Don't you think you wouldn't be in the conversation if US was a small, more insignificant country.

    That's a stalemate between two big rivals, and yes sometimes you can solve things differently, more calmly.

    Working together beats sabotaging each other.

    You think the US playing World police killing off a lot of Iraqis, Iranians is fun too?

    Imma say cool down, every country got its skeletons in the closet.

    Do you see me running around and claim 'F this country, F that country'?

    If you have the virus already spreading, isn't it the first response to contain it rather than have mediocre measures to let it spread, have tons of idiots partying on beaches due to spring break?

    The US honchos have been pointing fingers first and then trying to stop the virus spreading.

    For a country with minimum history, people are sure eager to boss the European community around who have more than double the history.

    Dude, stay at home most of the time and do your part.

    It's what everyone cares about right now, and let the governments handle their own shet.

    Nobody is happy about the situation in China as well, I wish things were better and I wish there was no gun violence or systemic hate towards colored people in the States.

    I just do not go around cussing things out, that is not my cup of coffee/tea.

    Let's control what the normal Joe can. Let's enjoy the Draft picks from a distance.

    Invest securely, do smart things, be happy and content. Wish you a good weekend, peace out.

    Basically, If what somebody says refutes says or does not fit my narrative, I don't want to hear about it.
    Awesome!

    1st of all I'm very happy

    2nd of all I didn't cuss.

    3rd of all I dont like people who are apologists and make excuses for others bad behavior.

    BTW, I dont trust our govt either. They're really to blame, they shouldn't have gotten in bed with the Chinese to begin with. We can thank Kissinger and the globalists for some of this, but this really falls squarely on the Chinese. People should be able to recognize evil when they see it and call out evil for what it is.

    To return to the topic at hand.

    I have no ties to Morey or any government on this planet. And I am glad to be just a private person.

    I haven't been a fan of his when he was here but I have never publicly spoken against him and his Moreyball as well.

    I do not care about him and his Sixers nor do I feel anything when the Rockets beat his ass.

    Then you have a problem with me, I am a diplomatic moderate, a guy who is level headed and middle of the spectrum.

    If you want to point fingers, go ahead, I am not the right person then.

    I see Trump as an evil person yet some of your country men made him president.

    I think many people with a gun aren't evil but they do stupid things that end in evil.

    Evil is just a lazy term because you can't come up with a better term - cunning, conniving, immoral, hypocratic,selfish would be better.

    As a guy of Asian descent and some little knowledge about it, I think there is a rift, a discrepancy between those 2 countries for sure.

    On a political level I have never seen a country dissing socialism so hard than the US.

    In the European Union where I am residing now, socialist parties are a part of the political spectrum.

    It's a very basic concept of turning and helping the little blue collar worker, giving out money to them.

    There's no refuting the two points I made.

    Those are facts.

    So inventing a false claim to invade Iraq killing innocent people including our own is not bad behavior?
    I was replying to your comment that your only interested on your own truth.
    It sounded like you were being closed minded and do not care for the other side of the coin
