More on China and the NBA

First off let me say that I give Steve Kerr a complete pass on this issue. Kerr's dad was the President of American University in Lebanon. Steve Kerr's dad was targeted and assassinated for the crime of being an American in a foreign land. So I give Steve Kerr a pass if he only feels comfortable speaking on domestic political situations.

One question I keep asking myself is if the NBA will prohibit any pro Hong Kong apparel at games this year. Can I show up at a Celtics game with a T-Shirt that simply has Darryl Morey's Tweet on the front? (These T-Shirts would be a great business idea for some enterprising person out there.) Will the Celtics require me to either cover up the shirt or leave? There's nothing offensive to the shirt. If yes - then I think I would never give the NBA another dime in my life.

If no - then what a great way to protest in support of Hong Kong. Can you imagine China having to censor every video shot of the crowd filled with people wearing these pro Hong Kong shirts? Priceless.


  1. There would be only one way to find out.

  2. Agree 100% - and I fully expect some to show support for Hong Kong in NBA arenas this way. Question is will ESPN, TNT and the news outlets cover it?
