  1. Different people in different cultures have different thought processes, how is that fact new to people in the US😂? China’s core ideology has been right leaned nationalism directed by the central government/ imperial court in the older days of previous dynasties. It has been like that since the beginning of time and will be like that until the end of time.

    I’ve gone through most of my education in the US and I’m simply shocked about how the general public in the US is too blind to see that. You can’t use your ways to settle matters with people who are use to completely different ways, it’s called culture clash, nothing new here. Just people seemed to not understand that it applies to economy and politics as well.

  2. Company A do business with Company B, and A make billions of dollars each year  from B.

    One day Employee X from B claims that he has been treated unfairly, and destroys B's office and hurts the security guards of B. 

    At this time, A tweet: Fight for freedom, stand with X.
    B respond: Your speech has hurt our feelings and cooperation. Please explain and apologize.
    And A: This is my freedom of speech. I don't think I have done anything wrong. But you cannot prevent me from making money from you, otherwise you are too narrow-minded and disrespect the freedom of speech.

  3. Funny how many leftists want the US to adopt the same political system. As someone who HAS lived in China I can say that those people are 1,000% misguided.

  4. Politics and Sports don't mix,sometimes you have to shut your mouth,you can't just say anything you want and cry freedom of speech.You don't love Chinese food and at the same time hate Chinese people.

  5. Your LAKERS are in China right now amidst all of the controversy over Morey's tweet.
    LeBron JAMES: Speak up. Say something. Or is it too inconvenient for you because too much money is involved?

  6. Nothing is forcing the NBA to apologize, like every other corporate entity profit is the objective. People are secondary , ALWAYS even here in the U.S

  7. Morey should take the initiative to quit before it escalates into something abysmal. But it seems too late now. It’s a management or PR issue. His tweet lost the business. He should take full responsibility. Not Adam Silver or even the NBA. The Americans could keep saying what they want. The Chinese could believe what they believe. Move on.
    I don’t even know why harden is apologizing he’s done nothing lul this world is fucking crazy.

  8. Silent, you can not understand the so-called freedom is the fact that random rumors, inciting others to do?If someone says that he supported Osama bin Laden you would feel? Support ISIS massacre destroy your city and you would feel?This time you really wrong again, for the Chinese people or China will always double standard, this is the ugly side of you, you continue to use media to brainwash other people, right!Do not take what came to different values ​​excuses, I played basketball for a decade, I love NBA, but today I support my country, today's NBA news does not look, do not ask me why,Different Values😂😂😂

  9. Morey messed up billions. But he also add a voice to the voiceless. Everyone will have to take a pay cut for the voiceless.

  10. But wait, if I’m a investor and a company that i invested on said bad things about me… i think it’s fair that i pull out all my money, right?

  11. "bow down if they run a foul with the authoritarian gov't". That's a lot of garbage. Nobody is asking you to bow down. Nobody said you can't speak your mind. You can speak your mind, but it doesn't mean I am going to continue to like you. F*&k off America. Your country is nothing but a shit hole country filled with naive idiots. China has more money than you. China has more military power than you. Your gov't are the biggest criminals in the world. The US gov't and CIA have instigated many wars around the world and claim "freedom & democracy" as a disguise to invade other peaceful countries.

  12. Freedom of speech is tolerated without causing or intentionally jeopardizing China's interest and security. NBA post is like rubbing salt into wounds. It's also an insult and humilation to Chinese rule and sovereignty. Therefore NBA should be banned and kicks out permanently.

  13. I bet this Morey does not even know what is actually going on in Hongkong. Just made a reckless comment to attract attention or to make himself look ‘cool’.

  14. Donald Sterling chitchatted racism garbage with his gf and received careering-terminating punishment from NBA management. Where the hell was freedom of speech at that time?

  15. Lebron James please step up to the plate and let the communists know that we will stand up to them no matter what

  16. Shame on NBA siding with rioters' violence and blood politics now hurting Hong Kong people just by watching one side news..

  17. Isn't USA using the weapon of SANCTIONS in regard of punishing countries that don't kowtow to USA, its the same thing….

    The old saying are the best……….All is fair in love and war.

  18. Just make money from other countries! Sometimes morals and the right thing are more important than money! Tell China to get over themselves and do better!

  19. He simply Said – – Hong Kong:  Fight for Freedom – – WTH is wrong with that?  Isn't Democracy what we're protecting and encouraging around the world – – despite many shameful efforts to become a Socialist society of our own.  I can't believe people got upset about this.  So what if they did – – are there that many people here that support their billionaire-dominated Chinese Communist Party (CCP) dictatorship?  They're obviously tired of it!!  Go Figure.  I STAND for GM Daryl Morey – – more should stand up too instead of being the silent majority.  Bury your heads long enough and your freedoms will be taken away too!  It's Coming!  Sensitive Bastards!!

  20. These are the kind of rich scum that sell out a country to Islam for a bigger fan base and $$$ while pretending they are doing it to be tolerant.

  21. Free speech or irresponsible comments? How can you pretend not seeing what HK roits are doing in HK? Are they violating the human rights of the innocent HK people?

  22. The best skills in the United States: fake news and the use of "liberal democracy" everywhere to cause war

  23. Free Speech?
    Can anyone say s__t about thw blacks or jews and not get a backlash and censorship?
    How about saying "bomb" anywhere near a plane?
    It's called respect and sensibility respectively

  24. What people need to do is to educate themselves about what's really happening in Hong Kong. Those who've been claiming to fight for HK are actually terrorizing Hong Kong. Expressing support for those thugs, you are in effect supporting their separatist movement. The majority of people in Hong Kong know they are Chinese and Hong Kong is part of China. Those rioters are delusional, brainwashed thugs who deny their own ancestries. They are terrorizing the locals using "scorched-earth" tactics, by burning, vandalizing and assaulting. It's like Texas declaring war on the Federal Government, and starting throwing Molotov cocktail bombs at police stations and Federal Offices. Would you support that? And how would you feel if other people voice support for that? Educate yourselves, America. Do your job, CNN, learn how real Hong Kong people think.

  25. It seems like that people not from China can always know China better than Chinese people and say some irresponsible stuff to something they do not really know about to make em look smart.
    Why?

  26. Fight for freedom! Stand with Taliban! Glory to the 911 attack! Long live the freedom of religion and freedom of speech!

  27. We all support freedom of speech, but the Chinese thought "how can anyone support thugs to destroy Hong Kong", under the vicious reports of western media, you do not know the real situation of Hong Kong. The Chinese are angry about how anyone could support thugs beating up citizens in the streets and destroying public facilities. If you disagree with the mob, they will beat you up and bleed you. This is what happened in Hong Kong today.

  28. It seems now people are willing to defend Adam Silver and Daryl Morey‘s freedom of speech, but not for James Harden's.

    Americanism = Double standard?

  29. let's get this straight. we should stop saying that the ccp [chinese communist party] is "offended" by these comments…because it's similar to a murderer being "offended" that you said that he killed someone. can we think about the people in HK who clearly have spoken about what they want? or taiwan which is "not a country" despite over 20 million people? i'm more offended that we, the us, have not spoken up for them, rather than offending the CCP who is so sensitive that they can't even handle one owner posting a tweet…which can't even be read in mainland…cause twitter is banned..

  30. Communist China has been fighting against human rights with their money bullet since a decade ago. Make Communist China weak again, make American great again.

  31. NBA is an US based business. Overseas businesses are not that big. But bottom line is it is not about freedom of speech, value system, money … it is about respect the differences.

  32. I am Chinese, and I've been living in the U.S for over 10 years. Here are my opinions.

    Both countries have this "politically correct" or "core interest" thing.

    In U.S, politically correct/core intrest is that you can't offend minorities, LGBT, women, or any disadvantaged group. I am sure if a Chinese businessman said bad things about these disadvantage groups, he has to apologize otherwise his company will be negatively affected.

    In China, politically correct is that you can't challenge the country's sovereignty, especially this is also China's core interest.

    Houston Rocket's manager's tweeter supports Hong Kong rioters who challenge China's sovereignty and even advocates Hong Kong independence. This means he is challenging China's "politically correct" and its core interset. Therefore, China wants him to apologize.

    Yes, there's "freedom of speech" but can Americans discriminate against minorities or support KKK in public without having any trouble? The answer is big NO. I bet Adam Silver will apologize immediately if Rocket manger tweets racism. However, when he violates China's core interest and politically correctness, he refuses to apologize and use this "freedom of speech" to defend himself.

    I am so disappointed that the NBA commissioner (Adam Silver) doesn't understand his biggest oversea customer (20% of NBA revenue from China), and didn't notice China's core interest and politically correctness. I think NBA will lose big oversee revenue b/c his ignorance. This case should be added to the Havard business case study — to teach businessman to understand his customer better.

  33. Black players for the NBA should know this will effect them in the long run, due to the decreasing amount of white fans in America, basically NBA rely on China to grow with fans

  34. Funny how so many Americans see those in the NBA as hypocrites, while they wear Chinese made shoes and clothing, hold an IPhone made in China, sit on furniture made in China, buy cheap Chinese made goods from Wal-mart, etc. As a matter of fact the vast majority of the devices used to view and comment on this video have a major portion of their manufacturing completed in China. Trade with China accounts for ~20% of all American trade, so the truth is that we are all complicit. #GetaClue

  35. When hypocrites politicians use NBA spread war and lies, they ruined what Kobe, Yao, Shark, and everybody had built for, love and peace, one that bridged the gap between two nations. For years people shared the same thrill and touch, enjoyed the same sportsmanship and athleticism the game had shown us. But now, dirty political games ruined everything.

  36. China is scared of thare people wanting freedom. Communist china needs to fall b4 thay attack the rest of us. Thay are not the world police And nether is the US.

  37. The hypocrisy! Wasn't America profiting during slavery, where was the cry to place human rights ahead of profit then? Nonsense!

  38. You know, I'm telling a joke, American freedom of speech, Twitter Facebook is full of negative news about the Chinese government. The riots in Hong Kong are also driven by the United States. The U.S. government spends a lot of money on these rioters and even sent the American CIA to help them. When the Chinese want to tell the truth, a lot of accounts are blocked because they are afraid that people will see the truth. My nine accounts are blocked. That's what Americans call "freedom of speech" – based only on their interests.

  39. There are quite a few US citizens supporting the movement in Hong Kong so China government should ban all imports from the USA.

  40. China needs to understand that not only are we in a relationship with them.. they are in a relationship with us to. We can't stop being true to our love of freedom just because money is on the line.

  41. So we have Hollywood, NBA, American universities hosting “Confucius schools”(Chinese propaganda) and the American real estate market as appeasers of China.

    Which American institutions are next to fall over?

  42. Professional athletes have no problem speaking about inequality in America. when it came to China and freedom for HK, they apologized for commenting on China human rights issues. WTF!

  43. I wish corporations would stand up more to the American Values and not BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN CHINESE MONEY… HONGKONG PEOPLE ARE SUFFERING…!!! JUST SHOWS MONEY CAN BUY EVERYTHING INCLUDING THESE GREEDY CORPOATIONS SOULS!!! SOULESS BLOODSUCKING LEECHES!

  44. But didn't Trump say he wants all American companies out of China. So Trump should be glad the NBA can't operate in China any longer.

  45. For your convenience of understanding, it's like someone publicly expressing support for 9/11 terrorists, racists against the black or white supremacy, and saying that is freedom of expression. Do you understand, double standard hypocrites?

  46. Just one question, can anybody tell if what has happened in HK happens in US/UK, what will your government do? And how many people will be arrested or even killed? Thank you.

  47. sports should be sports only. Don’t include politics specially politics of pther countries that is helping your business grow. Chinese politics vs hongkong doesn’t affect you in any way. I am a Filipino and i am not a troll, just want to say that.. we don’t want any countries meddling with our politics. Did our leaders say anything about how you should handle your gun problem? Did you hear any country leader tell you americans that you are handling poorly your gun problem? Of course none, because that is your problem and to show respect as well… our views on guns is way different that how you view ownership of guns. So stop shoving in our throat what you think is right for hongkong and what other matters because we also view your gun problem is way different!!!
