  Rockets GM Daryl Morey in hot water after Hong Kong tweet Houston Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta on Friday scolded general manager Daryl Morey for a tweet Morey posted in support of protesters in Hong Kong. © Richard Shotwell/Invision/AP Daryl Morey, general manager of the Houston Rockets, right, and Ellen Morey arrive at the NBA Awards on Monday, June 24, 2019, at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Calif. “Listen…@darylmorey does NOT speak for the @HoustonRockets. Our presence in Tokyo is all about the promotion of the @NBA internationally and we are NOT a political organization. @ESPN,” Fertitta tweeted.

Silver revealed earlier in the week that China had asked the NBA to fire Daryl Morey .

Morey did throw the a lot of "peoples finanaces" into a state of unknown. Hell, Anta has said they won't extend any contracts with current players after deals are Lebron is absolutely wrong for calling Morey uneducated(even though Morey said himself he "misunderstood" in his response) but I don't have any

The NBA’s ongoing issues with the Chinese government in the wake of Daryl Morey’s Hong Kong tweet aren’t going to go away any time soon. Silver this week offered a somewhat more full-throated support for Morey’s right to free expression, confirming Morey won’t face any discipline.

That declaration came along with public acknowledgement that the Chinese government had, in one way or another, wanted Morey fired. Silver’s newest comments apparently touched another nerve, as the South China Morning Post, reported Saturday that state media issued an editorial promising further retribution for Silver and the NBA.

Did NBA share two different statements about Daryl Morey's comments in appeal to China?

  Did NBA share two different statements about Daryl Morey's comments in appeal to China? Morey’s original tweet was sent on Friday night and contained a graphic saying he supported those protesting in Hong Kong. Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta immediately distanced the team from Morey’s tweet. After a report said Morey’s job status was being discussed, the Rockets GM shared the following statement:“I did not intend my tweet to cause any offense to Rockets fans and friends of mine in China. I was merely voicing one thought, based on one interpretation, of one complicated event. I have had a lot of opportunity since that tweet to hear and consider other perspectives.

WSJ: Morey was getting 2 notifications per second following his tweet, researchers believe the response was potentially orchestrated by Chinese State . Update (Tuesday 9:30 a.m. ET): Deadspin spoke to another source with extensive knowledge of Tencent and Woj in the House.

“Silver has spared no effort to portray himself as a fighter for free speech and used freedom of speech as an excuse to cover for Morey, who voiced his support for the violent actors in Hong Kong,” [CCTV] said. “This has crossed the bottom line of the Chinese people.”

Silver’s handling of the controversy had proved his “double standards”, the broadcaster said, adding that he had “defamed” China on the international stage.

“To please some American politicians, Silver has fabricated lies out of nothing and has sought to paint China as unforgiving,” it said.

The way in which the NBA boss had defended Morey showed he had “problems in his character”, the report said, adding that he “will receive retribution sooner or later”.

So that sounds pretty much exactly like an ominous CCTV editorial is expected to sound. Obviously the NBA is going to continue to feel the impact of whatever China decides to do for the near future, though clearly Silver knew this was a probable outcome when he made his most recent comments on the topic this week.

Chinese state TV suspends 2 NBA preseason game broadcasts

  Chinese state TV suspends 2 NBA preseason game broadcasts BEIJING (AP) — Chinese state broadcaster CCTV announced Tuesday it will no longer air two NBA preseason games set to be played in the country. In a statement, CCTV indicated the decision was prompted by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver's remarks in Japan following a tweet by Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey last week that supported anti-government demonstrations in Hong Kong. The broadcaster is also reviewing all its cooperation and exchanges involving the NBA, said the statement posted to CCTV Sports' official social media account."We're strongly dissatisfied and oppose Adam Silver's claim to support Morey's right to freedom of expression," CCTV said.

It’s hard to describe just how much happened this offseason, from the league-shaking player movement in the summer right up through now, when we have a foreign power threatening the league commissioner just a few days before the regular season is set to begin. It’ll be nice to have the games back, of course, but unlike free agency and the draft, this story isn’t constrained by the league calendar.
