Now check this out, ever since that Hong Kong tweet, China has been demanding the NBA to sack Morey. The NBA resisted due to domestic political pressure, as a result they’ve been banned from Chinese TV for the past year. Now it’s been a hellish 2020, people are distracted by a lot of shit, the NBA decided this is a good time to sack Morey to get back that China revenue. To avoid political drama in the US, China resumed broadcasting of NBA games first. Then a few days later Morey “stepped down”, and he’ll most likely be out of the league for good. Folks, the fix is in.
Only for this to be disproved when he is rehired
hell just find loopholes to try to prove it still. Conspiracy theorists always do.
"China is fine with it as long as its not with the Rockets, the team they really care about"
Where do you think hed be likely to go?
The NBA insiders are all saying hes taking a break to focus on his family... Sounds like it could be blacklisting to me
Woj said on ESPN â€śthis is his (Morey) decision, the NBA games are already back on Chinese TV....I think this is a chance for Morey to catch his breath, look around the landscape and see what else may interest him out thereâ€ť. The propaganda is already
Yeah that taking a break from basketball and focusing on his family quote really stuck out to me too
I promise you Morey is getting another gig. Just watch.
Nah, the NBA sold him out. This is not just on Ferttita, most if not all owners would have wanted him gone.
The rockets are trending in the wrong direction. Heâ€™s bailing out to save face. Also heâ€™s not supposed to have a great relationship with Frettita
I dont think the NBA made a deal, but i do think the China issue caused Houston to ask him to step down. The Rockets have been huge in China ever since they drafted Yao, and this situation really hurt.
ugh. gtfo with this r/conspiracy trash
As far as conspiracy theories go this isnt all that crazy
Its not really a conspiracy theory. While I imagine Morey not wanting to rot away years of his career with the Westbrook contract he didnt even want played a bigger role, the China thing definitely played a role in his time being up.
Yea OP is going a little extreme but the main point about morey having to step down after the china thing was the most predictable move of this off-season. No way anyone in the world keeps their job after costing their boss that much money.
Absolutely. I heard LeBron was at the negotiation with Silver.
