    In October 2019, Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey posted a tweet supporting pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong. In reaction, the Chinese government censored NBA broadcasts in China, and Chinese companies suspended business deals with the world's premiere basketball league. As the controversy spun out of control, NBA commissioner Adam Silver, Houston Rockets star James Harden, and NBA All-Star LeBron James were all asked for their opinion on the growing crisis. In this video, we dive deep into the relevant history that led to this critical moment.
    For decades, the NBA has been pushing a business strategy to attract fans in China, where basketball is more popular than in the United States. At the same time, the government of the United States has been pursuing a trade policy with China intended to generate profit for American businesses while simultaneously exposing Chinese consumers and businesses to ideas of democracy and free speech through the transactional dynamics of globalization. Originally, the hope of US leaders like President Bill Clinton was that this trade would lead to the democratization of China. What China's fight with the NBA shows is that the opposite seems to be occurring.

Hong Kong is good. China (Taiwan) is good too. Macau is cool. Tibet is Holy. East Turkestan is awesome. But the People's Republic of China is not anymore tolerable! Let's go and stand with the Capitalist Chinese States if the PRC has that attitude! I deserve to get replies because I'm radicalized.

Morey was absolutely within his right and its so infuriating that so many people in the US have tried to say he shouldn't have said that. We are supposed to be a free democracy but apparently not when pockets are deep

Americans have mass surveillance, minority oppression, you shuts down your whistle blowers, and from time to time wages war against other countries. Freedom of expression is a joke when the end result is the same. China has its own way of running the show. It's not great but it's not a black and white matter, everything is in the 50 shades of grey.

The Rockets reverted back to red as traditional color after Yao came because it's what the Chinese likes, I heard. Their national color is red.

Great video. But it's not a risk the import of chinase censorship, it is a fact. Google, NBA and many others who play by the rules of money. Whether China values are "right" or "wrong" is one thing, but these companies are selling the values of democracy and free market that got them to exist. Incalidating democracy for profit is a dangerous political statement. One that we will all have to pay for sooner rather than later.

China is a HUGE market. Google tried to go back in there for the $$$. But Google would've had to censor search results, which obviously goes against Google's values. I think they pulled out in the end.
