So much for the NBA's fake woke b******t.

We are deeply disappointed by Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey's inappropriate speech, he has undoubtedly gravely hurt the feelings of the China fans. Morey has clarified that his speech does not represent the Rockets and NBA's stand. Under the values of the NBA, people may seek a deeper understanding and share their views on matters that interest them. We deeply respect China's history and culture, (and) hope that sports and NBA may act as unifying forces of positive energy, (and) continue to build bridge for the interaction of international culture, to unite people together.


Adam Silver calling Morey's comments "deeply offensive" is a whole other level of insanity.

Especially after he said this not too long ago.

NBA pulling the All Star game from Charlotte while simultaneously sucking off the Communist Chinese Government thats responsible for countless human rights violations is pretty much a summary of woke culture these days. Lol @ Harden "I love China", he trying to build his social credit there? #wokeNBA.

Edit: And thank you Matt Stone and Trey Parker. 2 guys who keep it real and have been for years.

The hype around Zion reminds me of LeBron. They nearly sold out a scrimmage game, with over 10k in attendance. Watching a teenage girl in tears after signing an autograph, it seems like he has this aura about him. Hope he lives up to it. The whole city of NO seems to be behind him.

So someone says he supports democracy and it's horrible. Steve Kerr says he doesn't support democracy and crickets. The values of this country are completely f**ked

Kerr's "I really gotta take the time to study the issue but will have no further comment about this" statement was such a weak copout for a guy who is so outspoken on any number of other topics but suddenly he's pleading ignorance when he simply could have spoken up in support of Morey? Should have just gone with a simple "no comment" if he was going to punk out.



Its not even a left/right issue but a matter of supporting human rights and democracy over authoritarianism which is why politicians on both sides of the aisle have slammed the NBA.












Ill give these guys the benefit of the doubt of not understanding the topic yet. Kerr said hes gonna do some homework in this topic. Okay, fine. But in a month from now, i dont want to hear these coaches and players still supporting nba in china.

He also said that he won't have further comment on it so its not like he'll come back in a few weeks and say "yep, I've studied up and am ready to give my thoughts on the matter." He's just hoping that it all quickly dies down and goes away.



Beyond that he didn't need to understand the topic(which I don't buy for a second considering how frequently he cites stuff from the NY Times and the Washington Post) to simply speak out in support of Morey being allowed to speak his mind without threats or coercion.


This is all about money and doing whatever they can to appease China to keep those sweet yuan flowing.
Oh Steve Kerr the ultimate know it all is a sell-out? Shocked. I bet Klay is happy Steve he didn't get on his usual soap box Anta would be pissed.

Hilarious NBA has no problem when Kerr, Pop, SVG, Lebron, et al. rip Trump or go on anti-gun tirades, and they'll crow about how player/coaches are free and even encouraged to speak out...but then NBA pisses down its leg because a GM offers words of support for HK, where people are protesting because (among other things) they'd prefer China not be able to basically arrest and disappear them.

Trey Parker & Matt Stone apology to China:

"Like the NBA, we welcome the Chinese censors into our homes and into our hearts," the statement reads. "We too love money more than freedom and democracy. Xi doesn't look like Winnie the Pooh at all. Tune into our 300th episode this Wednesday at 10! Long live the great Communist Party of China. May the autumn's sorghum harvest be bountiful. We good now China?"


Sorghum harvest
Lol Steve Kerr is following the same gag order memo that the NBA sent out to all their employees which is Stfu about China

Lets see now. sacrifice Daryl Morey or potentially lose out on the billions from the Chinese market? The business of business is business and certainly nothing even in America is immune to that. What did you guys think was gonna happen?

Morey was either incredibly naive for sending out that tweet or he knew exactly what he was doing. Either way, he is a dumfuk for doing it.
