For all the hypocrites crying about AD demanding a trade9:39 pm Fri Feb 1 EDT

Clay Travis This NBA- ong Kong- hina mess is fascinating The NBA is super w ke when it comes to things like made up US transg nder bathroom disputes but bent the knee to hina when D ryl M rey came out in support of democracy amp upset c mmu9:28 pm Sun Oct 6 EDT

How did they bend the knee. They didnt punish Morey 2

Popular coverage of the Daryl Morey and China ordeal is really bad and everyone should be embarrassed by this 7:47 am Mon Oct 7 EDT

Honestly the Hong Kong thing is lightweight, which is why The NBA doesnt care and neither do the players. And I dont think most of the people currently posting on reddit/twitter care either. They just want to stick it to China and the "progressive" nba. -2

The NBA is actively helping China silence American citizens 8:48 am Mon Oct 7 EDT

Why will the whole NBA jump on the bandwagon and hate on Trump but won t say anything about China 12:42 pm Mon Oct 7 EDT

Because Trump is the President of the country they live in and most of them dont know anything about China and Hong Kong relations. 12

Why will the whole NBA jump on the bandwagon and hate on Trump but won t say anything about China 12:42 pm Mon Oct 7 EDT

Easily educating yourself on a situation is pretty hard these days with all the propaganda readily available on the internet. How many people do you really think are informed on the issue that are currently posting on reddit about it? 0

The internet and various govt officials got angrier over the NBA making a poor biz decision than it did about the leader of the free world completely abandoning Democratic ideals while idolizing or accommodating dictators12:47 pm Mon Oct 7 EDT

To be honest, reddit didnt go this hard over Kaepernick getting blackballed from the league. At least the NBA had the decency to not fire Morey 1

Someone should now speak up about Chinas mistreatment of the Uyghurs and force the NBA and people like Joe Tsai to jump through hoops to defend that one1:01 pm Mon Oct 7 EDT

Why doesnt Morey do it? 3

NBA isnt the only organisation screwing up here Nike made a commercial with Kaepernick to show how progressive they are but they are also silencing their sponsored athletes from saying anything about the Hong Kong situation9:28 am Tue Oct 8 EDT

Im sure hes heard of the situation, but there is plenty of misinformation on the current Hong Kong vs China issue. 1

If the NBA is supporting free speech they clearly owe Donald Sterling an apology9:55 am Tue Oct 8 EDT

Eh, the quote was freedom on speech on these issues as in democracy. Not freedom to be a racist. 1

The NBA refusing to take a hard stance against China makes sense9:32 am Tue Oct 8 EDT

Imagine losing billions of dollars because of Morey 2

The NBA refusing to take a hard stance against China makes sense9:32 am Tue Oct 8 EDT

Americans will forget and move on to the next thing to be outraged about. The NBA was banking on China not blowing this up 1

Dallas is Americas Team in the NFL how about Houston being Americas Team in the NBA 10:00 am Tue Oct 8 EDT

Morey deleted that tweet with the swiftness 1

Preseason - China incident10:48 am Tue Oct 8 EDT

Ultimately the goal is for Morey to step down or get fired. Canceling visas would trigger an unnecessary international incident 4

Stay woke - The price Tilman Fertitta paid for the Rockets had their immense popularity in China built in Will Tilman force Morey s hand no matter what Silver does say 10:50 am Tue Oct 8 EDT

Lets be honest, Morey was just tweeting cheeky shit on twitter. Even though he took the right position, he really wasnt thinking the reaction would be this. Nobody forced him to do anything. 4

Kyrie was only a very smart part of Boston s problems last year and he is going to have the best season of his career this year in Brooklyn3:50 pm Tue Oct 8 EDT

Knicks are still the biggest brand in basketball5:52 pm Tue Oct 8 EDT

r NBA down with China and all Chinese companies like TenCent who are censoring the games also r NBA lets spend thousands of dollars on awards for a post of an NBA player making a three and give our money to TenCent who owns a portion of Reddit 11:18 pm Tue Oct 8 EDT

r/nba uses whataboutism to diss the nba but immediately wipes their hands clean when its used on them. Is what it is 1

Why hasnt there been a Daryl Morey yet 8:40 am Wed Oct 9 EDT

Honestly because he was only supporting Hong Kong to be a cheeky bastard on twitter. Obviously he believes in democracy, but he didnt want all this attention. Which is why he shut up about it and went full both sides lol. Also why the Chinese made a mista 1

Does the NBA need China more Or does China need the NBA more 10:53 am Wed Oct 9 EDT

Its sports. Its not a need. That said I think China is overestimating themselves. At some point they communist dam is coming down. Or maybe Im just being optimistic 1

For the people saying how unfair it is to criticize Steve Kerr Gregg Popovich or Lebron James for not commenting on a non-domestic issue2:25 pm Wed Oct 9 EDT

Dude shut up. They dont have to speak about issues they dont want to. Stop using whataboutism to attack people. Surely youre not gonna boycott reddit because its partly owned by Tencent right? 14

Nope, not a right. 1

Off Topic Is China 100 in the wrong or is there really a grey area here we arent full looking into 11:16 am Thu Oct 10 EDT

I think what usually happens in protest and rebellions is there are a few bad actors or even terrorist not really fighting for the same overall goal and thats what governments use to portray the initial protest. So China is like 95% wrong 1

The self righteous attitude about the employees of the NBA are ridiculous 11:03 am Fri Oct 11 EDT

Lets be real, most peoples lives are meaningless. Being self-righteous on the Internet allows us to feel good. 6

I get that people here are upset Kerr is being a hypocrite with his lack of comments on China - but why is there such an outage he has a lack of a comment 11:07 am Fri Oct 11 EDT

Whataboutism. He spoke on one issue so he is now obligated to speak on all of them. 1

Explosiveness agility and speed - prime d rose and Westbrook3:42 am Sat Oct 12 EDT

Its genetics mans. But if you want to improve explosiveness try NFL drills. Those guys play in quick burst. Use lower reps and higher weights in quicker sets. Always work on your core and legs. This generates power for your entire body. Sprinting. Squat 4

Trump tweets Kerr So funny to watch Steve Kerr grovel and pander when asked a simple question about China He chocked and looks weak and pathetic Don t want him at the White House 4:19 am Sat Oct 12 EDT

Its funny cause Trump does the same thing with the Hong Kong issue 3

Why Zion Williamson will be better than Lebron James7:09 pm Sun Oct 13 EDT

A bit of both. Blake didnt have downhill speed like those two do. That said, LeBron can dribble and control possessions. Well see if Zion can when the time comes 2

How often will we see FREE HONG KONG chants at NBA games 5:54 pm Wed Oct 16 EDT

For a few week until people find something else to be outraged about. Honestly it was almost dead until LeBron spoke for no reason 2

What did Lebron James say exactly that was so controversial about China 6:41 pm Wed Oct 16 EDT

Nothing really. But he should have said no comment instead of butting in. 1

So Are there any people willing to admit they are LeBron fans left out there Feels like Im all alone at this point 9:37 pm Wed Oct 16 EDT

I think hes a dumbass for his comments, but I also dont think he made them for money reasons. He was just mad at Morey. 0

This anti circlejerk against people supporting democracy and calling out nba personalities for choosing China is annoying10:14 pm Wed Oct 16 EDT

I think the problem is that so little of peoples lives are genuine on anything these days. All these people suddenly caring about China (or not caring) but very few are willingly to make the sacrifices they want others to make. Its like modern society ha 0

Westbrook with another terrible game 5-13 1-4 from 3 and 8 turnovers - why exactly is there optimism 10:08 pm Wed Oct 16 EDT

I have a question about this whole China thing 12:22 am Thu Oct 17 EDT

The problem is LeBron spoke instead of saying no comment. 7

Why is everyone so mad at lebron 12:57 am Thu Oct 17 EDT

No. 99% would have said no comment. His dumbass was mad at Morey for the entire thing. Which is somewhat understandable but Morey had the correct initial position 0

Kobe Bryant is the biggest star in China and didnt have to answer or speak on the conflict all because he didnt parade him self as the leader of social activism10:31 am Thu Oct 17 EDT

Whats with this idea people arent allowed to be selective about activism? LeBron has directly improved the lives of multiple people. Are these things invalidated because he didnt support HK? I mean you call out LeBron for selective activism, are you real 1

If the NBA could make more money being a Chinese league they wouldnt even think twice before selling out 3:14 pm Thu Oct 17 EDT

This is not true lol. Basketball and Rapping are aspiring goals for many young black men. They wont go overseas unless forced. Its why its usually a last option for many NBA players even if they could get paid more over there. You cant even pay some peopl 3

Why are some people in the media acting like markelle fultz wasn t injured11:25 am Sun Oct 27 EDT

The nervous/lack of confidence stuff was just dumb. That said it was probably a strange combo of mental/physical that weve never really seen for a player. What probably happened is that his body perceived pain with his shooting motion and then when the 1
