The NBA statement originally made in English had a different twist when it came out in Chinese.

The NBA's Chinese social media account posted a statement Monday saying the league was "extremely disappointed" by Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey's "inappropriate" tweet that showed support for Hong Kong anti-government protesters, adding that Morey's view "severely hurt the feelings of Chinese fans."

Thing is, the league never actually said those words.

It's great, we've watched the NFL find their way outta fans, now it's the NBA's turn, encore edition

I'm tired of funding arms for other countries. Let them solve their own problems and we wish them Godspeed! But we've got a war right here in 'The Homeland' to worry about!

patience grasshopper, patience

:dduck:

mostly it's a war we've not been invited to, we just gotta act normal, don't let anyone notice that we're acting like nothings wrong, they'll get the idea thinking everythings all right, they'll keep thinking the POTUS is going to get impeached and they can still buy a tank of gas for their car...they'll never know, once it's over, it'll be like nothing happened at all

just wait, you'll see

;)

Hong Kong is part of Greater China. It's their business. If the USA wants to give extra visas that's another thing. We could use more conservative Asians here.

nba pulled the all-star game out of north carolina because of bathroom bill legislation that globohomo didnt like

but a g.m. supporting freedom for hk is an outrage?

Idk if people realize this. But corporations and therefore the government kiss chinas ass.

Ever wonder why the USA is so relaxed to China spying, hacking and stealing our tech? Well, they have huge markets and can make or break corporations here so not much is done about it.

China is one of the biggest threat to the USA. Not necessarily a military threat, but they threaten our sovereignty.

I have to admit to a bit of ignorance on this subject and it was the South Park episode that made me aware of the depth of this activity

Unknbeknown to US, lots of 'our' stuff has been tweaked so it fit's markets around the world:
anyone remember when Truth Justice and The American Way was dropped from a superman movie?

here's another one:
"“I intend to speak before the United Nations tomorrow and inform them that I am renouncing my U.S. citizenship,” a frustrated Man of Steel tells the American official. "

All Hail China!

There were some really great white basketball players in the old NBA but now the sport has been renamed as African Handball. 10 black guys running 1 on 1s up the floor the whole game. More like school yard games than professionals. No decent human being actually follows the sport.

at this point, it's not a matter of caring...

Watching all the Train Wrecks is fascinating, just by itself
