    Sabotaging a relationship decades into the making with one of the world's largest market with one tweet is stupid. He could have kept his thoughts to himself. He had nothing to gain.

    I'm sure pretty much everybody in the NBA in essence supports the protestors (or would if they know the situation) but nobody is gonna flush a good business relationship down the toilet over it for no reason.

    Literally exemplifying the mentality I’m referring to. “Nothing to gain”, “business relationship”. He expressed his opinion in a public forum and was ready for criticism, not really about gaining anything, it was a matter of principle and being on the right side of history by criticising a shitty regime.

    Most people would rather be comfy an say they support the protests but when it comes time to prove their support they grab their wallets and look the other way. That’s some weak shit, especially since most of the NBA claims to be progressive, well that shit comes with a price, whether it’s you losing money or everyone lecturing you on the obvious and calling you naive.

    Although I’d be interested to know how much this actually ends up affecting the NBA’s relationship with China, it would be silly on China’s part if anyone’s being stupid, very petty from a business standpoint.

    That's the funniest part of the whole thing. Also the whole US political system who has never taken a stand on China expecting the NBA to be the one to take the league :zaru

    He could have just as easily kept it to himself or said it in the company of friends, he risked alot when he said that for nothing. The Rockets don't care about his political opinions.

    I’m there for anyone disrupting the apple cart in a virtuous way, though I prefer it to be strategic. Still tho, I don’t think what he did was “stupid”.

    My cents

    China being overly salty over a tweet but the US media need to stop trying to always butt into other country's affairs and act high and mighty.

    the NBA isnt gonna lose China, the NBA has an internationally valuable brand that the citizens have gotten a taste of; eventually China is gonna cool down
