    You see. The hkers can’t simply be democratic as they are not educated to be open to criticism, they behave exactly like Chinese who they say they are not. Lol

    LeBron is right. People need to be educated and informed on HK protest. It is not freedom of speech. They have all those though: en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_Hong_Kong_protests Protesters demanded 5 things, IMO, are not reasonable: 1. Full withdrawal of the extradition bill from the legislative process 2. Retraction of the characterisation of the protests as "riots" 3. Release and exoneration of arrested protesters 4. Establishment of an independent commission of inquiry into police behaviour Universal suffrage for Legislative Council and Chief Executive elections 5. Resignation of Carrie Watch: it-my.com/watchvideo/video-dQG7iNIPXAc.html

    The whole thing has been planned for many years. The separatists worked hard to wait for the opportunity to start such campaign. They have brainwashed a bunch of kids since they were young. The young kids grew up and work as teachers, professors, lawyers, medical nurses or doctors, social workers, etc. They are everywhere and help brainwash more Hong Kong people to hate China. When the government tried to implement the extradition law (due to a murder case in Taiwan, long story short), they got a great opportunity to start the anti-China campaign. First with the peace protest, then violent protest, then more, destroying the reputation of the Hong Kong police, etc. More brainless people join and then they become more violent. The HK government is very incapable of handling such chaos and riot. They have no prior experience to handle riots since Hong Kong has been a peaceful city for many years. No one will ever expect Hong Kong to be like that. I just hope that more Hong Kong people will understand the motive behind such campaign. Anyway, the damage is done and Hong Kong will no longer be the same.

    Your guys democracy is your have your say, and other people have no other speak rights. Anyone have different option towards you all, or not agree with you soon they become your enemies, no matter how long you been liked him or her. What amazing world. Double standards, like we are not agree with molly’s saying as he refuse to see the fact in HK the protesters are no longer protesters, they are riots destroying HK bits by bits, and anti-china people all saying we are against Molly with no human rights. So how about James, his son pass though HK and been hold in HK over times, as parents James certainly do have rights to involve and saying comments as what he feel!

    Y’all are taking these comments all the way out of context. He said Morey didn’t know what effects his words would have on other people in the NBA who could lose their jobs. That’s it. But y’all are tryna say he was saying Morey was misinformed about what he tweeted. That ain’t the case. Come on now

    Support the protest, but also curse the rioters. Ad hominen all you want but I cannot say I support it without saying that shame on the violent rioters who witchhunt and hurt other innocnet people. It would absolutely be double standard for me to say its not OK for police beating up people for no reason and say its OK for some protestor to turn their violence to public using lyching and witchhunting. Whoever doesnt differentiate and against those ridiculous "peaceful" behaviors, you are the role model of hypocrites.

    LeBron s real thoughts on Morey...for real.. "Don't really care bout politics, hurt feelings, or consequence, just don't mess my billions I can potentially earn in china".. I just wish he and the NBA would tell the truth.....China spends billions in NBA merchandise... Shoot, if north Korea paid billions to sponsor NBA, Silver and LeBron will be buddies eith Joon.

    What do you expect from a guy that took a pass on education to play a sport. They did his homework for him in junior high and high school. Then skipped college for the NBA. He’s purely a trained ball juggler that everyone props up but there isn’t much to see beyond that. He’s a failure everywhere else beyond juggling for our entertainment.

    They taking this a little too far bro. It wasnt that deep. Dont account 1 mans word for a whole league.

Stop being close minded over this crazy ass country.

    • Stokeley Moss
      Stokeley Moss

      @Manny damn that shit was long but you got a point there brotha. They are going 2 far with it but we'll just see where it goes it does seem a bit forced especially when i seen them tearing down nba poster over 1 gm's tweet. Chinese are very proud people but this does seem a bit clout chasing in my eyes. But i think the reason why they are trying to please them is because china is a huge part of alot of what america has especially merchandise.

    • Manny
      Manny

      ​@Stokeley Moss a) right to be upset over one mans tweet (which by the way tweets can't be seen in China as twitter is banned)...so yeah thin skinned. He's not even that public of a figure. I don't know the various GM's of basketball teams. b) Morey is a jack ass for supporting Hong Kong? damn man. c) it was Morey's own account, not the NBA account d) "its going to far what does lbj or anyone who isnt a rocket player have to do with this" well first China (being thin skinned) over reacted and went full on cancel/censor spree which made it an NBA issue (and later a full US issue as this happened with multiple companies in like the same week) and athletes didn't need an opinion or stance...until basketball (and other sports) athletes decided to become social activists and take up causes. so for that social activism to randomly end when up against a country that buys a lot of your shoes.........that's weak. hella weak. "“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere,” - MLK (which Lebron has tweeted) now Lebrons version "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere … except in China....cause they got lots of $$$ and Space Jam 2 is coming out"

    • Stokeley Moss

      @Manny nah im not saying they are thin skinned they have a right to be upset but they are acting off one mans tweet and if it was thhe nba twitter acoount then do this but its going to far what does lbj or anyone who isnt a rocket player have to do with this jack ass saying what he said
