NBA Players getting a pass on China

Why does it seem that some of the actual players (Harden, Westbrook) are getting a pass on their comments? They came out and basically said we apologize for Daryl. Im with the players sticking up for rights and speaking out but even with them when it gets to their China money, its like woah woah, lets slow down here.
