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.

Some owners may have to hold off on that third yacht and fourth vacation home in the Hamptons. Millionaire athletes might have to earn a couple million less on their next $50 million contract. Such are the horrors of modern living.

The problem the NBA ran into is that when you actively promote yourself as an organization that supports free speech and activism and encourages your players, coaches and executives to speak out on issues that are important to them, you can't go all full Stasi because China gets sand in their vaginas over a GM showing support for protesters in Hong Kong trying to hold on to whatever semblance of democracy they may still have left.

Now the NBA is in no-man's land where both left and right in the U.S. are unloading both barrels into them and China has already gone on a drama queen power trip, canceling TV contracts and trying to throw their weight around. In the end, the NBA still offers a product that China simply cannot replicate. Nobody cares about their basketball leagues so the NBA can ride out the storm while still supporting their actual employees and not being hypocritcal douchenuggets.

I love it

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.

They live in the US so obviously they will care more about what happens in our country. Kerr doesnt need to be at the front of every single international issue. Him taking a stand against the orange moron doesnt mean he needs to go after every single country that has a terrible leadership.

US constitution talks about freedom of speech and US has promoted themselves as advocates for democracy - yet they bend every which way to the Saudis - regardless of who is the President.

So, let's not just pile on NBA for hypocrisy when our entire system is built upon sucking dictators dicks when it favors us.

Oh please, Kerr swims in praise from the woke circle-jerk when he screeches about orange man bad and advocating for infringing upon the 2A rights of American citizens.

But then this intelligent, educated, well-read, SJW deep-thinker who has a brother-in-law that is a professor of Chinese history, and who also is a stream of CNN, NYT, and WaPo fare, suddenly he's befuddled by HK/China, it's "bizarre" and "doesn't know what to make of it"...Mao, Great Leap Forward, tens of millions murdered/starved, Tianamen Square little guy standing in front of a tank, brutal oppression, actual concentration camps, yeah I'm sure it's just so unknown and confusing to this paragon of virtue, he needs to read a dissertation and attend a couple of lectures before he can comment.

You see the storm of s**t Daryl Morey is in? Yeah, Kerr should jump right in there with him. The fault is on the NBA FO for not backing up their own because they're too afraid to lose out on the Chinese market. Kerr would have been an idiot to speak out for or against when the asocciation itself has no idea how to proceed, first condemning Morey and then taking a half-step back on their initial reaction.

What Kerr said was a tactical decision, because it could mean lots of lost revenue for the NBA in China. NBA is gonna make money in the US regardless who is in office and the opinion they have on the current POTUS.
