    Maybe I should start streaming on Twitch with a giant "fuck China" sign behind me.......

    The hypocrisy I think is what drives people nuts, especially with Kerr.

    hiya Gregolian,

    you'd get banned from Twtich, probably. its owned by Amazon, and they have no issue banning players or streamers who violate their policies.

    Amazon has tried for a looooooong time to make a dent in China, to no avail. they want IN, not OUT.

    That's not the point. The point is the NBA exploits SJW talking points. Then, partners up with China.

    Talks about human rights and other such thing in their different ad campaigns....

    Ignores a country's huge list of human rights violations like human organ harvesting and disappearing people for political speech against the regime.


    I doubt even Vince fucking McMahon would be this brazen about it.

    For me it's more about Silver groveling at the feet of China apologizing for what Morey said that is the issue.

    Trump was the first president with the balls to seriously challenge China. Pretending he's the same as these greedy cucks is just stupid. Instead of talking tough while taking little action like most politicians, Trump does the opposite.

    hiya SammyJar88,

    he is the same as these greedy cucks, as you put it. sorry to bring you the news.

    Mr. Trump's work in China has to do with money. money, money, money.

    the leader of China told our leader, "if ya want to do business with us, the first thing is this; keep your mouth shut regarding Hong Kong", and Mr. Trump complied.

    if we're going to slag on the NBA, then you're going to have to drag President Trump into the mud also.

    Trump has continued taking measures against China. That's a fact. China is losing and it wouldn't be happening without Trump.

    After moving the All Star Game from NC because the NBA apparently thinks a person born with a penis not being able to use a women's bathroom is a rights violation the NBA established itself as political. If the NBA won't stand up for people who want democracy now, it has some seriously messed up priorities.

    hiho SammyJar88,

    and i do not dispute that fact. his measures are to facilitate trade negotiations with China.

    its about $$$.

    Hong Kong has nothing to do with $$$. so the POTUS had no problem with Xi Jinping when told the POTUS to keep his mouth shut regarding Hong Kong.

    likewise, Geng Shuang (China's minister of foreign affairs) had no issue negotiating with Adam Silver and the NBA regarding monetary terms for the right for China to broadcast its games - but they've forbidden Americans (who seek to do business with the Chinese) from being too feisty regarding the 1st amendment when it comes to China.

    Xi is only demanding that the NBA comply. the POTUS did, afterall.
