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.
They have a financial interest in China just like the Owners do. I wonder why no one is concern trolling the owners? Is it because of their position? Or something else?
I agree with you that they should be, but I think part of it is that some of the big-name players have been so outspoken on social issues, so people are upset that theyre quiet on this. specifically guys like lebron or KD. you notice that no one cares wha
It just seems disingenuous...it’s super obvious these big name players have business interests in China as well as the Owners...but only one side is getting flak for an issue that was caused by Team organizations. Now we want players of all people to sa

Thats on NBA Reddit, not world news.
Most americans cant even comment on their own country correctly lol
Keepin it real is easy, until it reaches your pockets
What the hell do you want Black players to do about China? Has Morey ever tweeted out support for issues that effect their communities? Has he ever had their back, or stuck his neck out for them? When have Chinese Americans or Chinese nationals ever sp
Not looking for them to “do” anything besides keep their mouths shut. This is why doing business with people with different moral values is a bad idea.
Thats what theyre doing, but it doesnt seem like enough for some of you guys. The only player who said something is Harden, and the team threw him out there to face the media. Where is the owner and where is Morey? Morey isnt even standing behind his w
Damn, hows he gonna feed his family on $44mil/year and huge US endorsement deals?
Thats the stance for the NBA and they are getting slammed way more than Harden. The question is not if you would do it but why the double standard. Some are saying they are getting a lot of shit for it but not in the main stream media. If you go to [ESPN.
