Why the NBA cowered to its Chinese overlords

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

China, like any successful totalitarian nation, knows that the key to assuring silence and compliance rests in oversized disciplinary action against even the slightest of uprisings. Nothing gets everyone in line like an occasional annihilation.

It certainly appears to be working with the National Basketball Association, which is apologizing and kowtowing to the Chinese government right now after the communist regime took great umbrage with an otherwise tame tweet from an otherwise anonymous general manager.

I am a huge NBA fan and barely can wait till the season starts every year and am also a huge Rockets fan. GM Morey is probably the best GM in the game and it would be ludicrous to fire him but that is what it would take to get China to reverse their decision to unban the NBA being shown on the tube and merchandise to be sold again. Of course everyone is entitled to their opinion in this country but must suffer the consequences of their actions. I hate though how my team is put into this situation and Morey being in the hot seat like this. I say screw China but understand the huge amount of money they bring into the NBA but it is also China loss of monies too.

These guys had a pretty good breakdown on everything this morning. This is a daily morning show only on the Hill and are actually pretty good with their reporting.
