The NBA has badly mishandled this situation with China over Hong Kong. It started out as a Tweet from the Houston Rockets GM Tweeting his support for Hong Kong. What should have been quickly dismissed has turned into an international PR nightmare of the NBA's creation. ESPN has warned it's people to not talk about Chinese politics. The NBA has warned it's players and personnel to not talk about it. NBA players and coaches are notorious for speaking out about politics. One of the most vocal is Steve Kerr. But he has refused to speak out about this. He went so far as to compare the Chinese record of forced abortions, limiting the number of children (especially girls) and sweat shop type labor to idiots with guns in America. Just another example of the PR nightmare the NBA has created.
