  1. China: we dont support your freedom of expression.
    Americans: we dont support your authoritarian dictatorship and we want you to send troops to hong kong so we can send ours.

  2. NBA is gutless. I hope the NBA collapses. Hong Kong deserves support.

  3. comical!! Adam and the players had a talk in china and some 'big name players' got butt hurt over being involved in this mess, all the while loving to bash Trump, America and whites. screw these baby thugs and the nba, which is becoming the nfl.

  4. Freedom of speech? What a F'n joke! What about Snordon and Assange? Do they have their freedom of speech?

  5. Oh well NBA, you still have the whole world to make money. Go Rockets!!!

  6. Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything?? NBA bends the knee for China and Nike. HYPOCRITES

  7. American is spoiled. The majority of us do not know there is a limit on freedom of speech. If you cross the line, Julie Assange and Donald Sterling are good examples.

  8. NBA are slave trading while players kneel before them. 1M Muslims interned and players cower in silence like good boys.

  9. During Nazi times, those who did not protest the Krauts were called Collaborators.

  10. CCP as stupid as hell, pls wear black Tshirt with stand with hongkong.

  11. Dear White People; Colin Kaepernick

  12. Propagandas and keyboard warriors in the comment section

  13. The NBA is Gillette bound.

    Also I love how people like LeBron James support Bernie Sanders (in public) I guess LeBron wants to give the government 70 percent of his wealth.

  14. EXACTLY: – – – – mcoo465 – – – – – Bottom Line Is There All Just Basketball Players & Office Peeps for a BASKETBALL Team. Who cares. They throw a ball in a hoop, Or most would be janitors (Jerry West quote) . In THE WORLD PICTURE – No one should care what they think. Just a bunch of HOOPLA. NBA made 7B in 2018. 3m was from China. Let China Cry Over A TWEET. smh lol (TO MUCH MEDIA)

  15. By the way, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's grandfather was one of the biggest opium trader in China during the 'century of humiliation'. Check the author: James Bradley.

  16. The NBA, James Harden and Steph Curry are whores, anti American, anti Freedom.

  17. If the NBA supports Free Speech then they should put back the tweet and they should offer their support for Hong Kong, TIME TO BOYCOTT THE NBA IF THE OWNERS AND PLAYERS HAD ANY BALLS THEY WOULD DECLARE THEIR SUPPORT FOR HONG KONG AND ITS FIGHT TO KEEP IT'S RIGHTS AND FREEDOM, AND THEN TELL THE CHINES GOVERNMENT IF THEY DON'T LIKE IT THEY CAN KEEP THEIR MONEY AND STICK IT WHERE THE SUN DOESN'T SHINE.

  18. "Freedom of Speech" has baseline.     Hong Kong has "Plenty of Freedom",  but now ruled by "RIOTERS" (they are gangsters, they rub),   if you "Adam Silver" saying this kind of Freedom Speech to support "RIOTERS" destroying  Hong Kong.  You Adam Silver" & "Daryl Morey", should quit "Houston Rockets" and go for "US Politics".  Hong Kong has nothing to do with you, shut your mouth.

  19. FUCK CHINA.

    If the Communists like AOC want to see what a real concentration camp looks like, go to Western China. We made a deal with EVIL on the assumption that they would become more Democratic. Well, they are not. They are getting worse. We are getting worse. It’s time to say GOOD BYE to China. Fuck the whores in this country that want to make money off of slave labor.

  20. So these athletes really love to kneel. 😉

  21. Freedom of Speech!!!! Freedom of Hong Kong !!!! Free Tibet !!!! Democracy for the Chinese people !!! And the NBA lost me as a viewer as long as they support the Chinese government and sell out our democracy and our freedom, and sell out each and every single man and woman who died to defend our freedom and our basic human rights !!!!!! SHAME ON ALL AMERICAN COMPANIES WHO ARE SELLING US OUT @@@@!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. Great work to the NBA! Thank you for supporting freedom

  23. trump should deport all the nba owners and players to red china! we do not need the nba they do nothing for the kingdom of God only waste time adults playing with a orange ball? these kind of sell outs make kevin sick!

  24. Donald Stirling— The phone was tapped hi …

  25. Today China said freedom and democray are their bottom line. Americans and NBA should not talk about democray in China in order to respect the Chinese. Tomorrow they may say they don't like NBA now, and NBA becomes their bottom line. Are Americans gonna stop watching and talking about NBA ?

  26. Harden apologized for Nuthin' 😁🤣

  27. What American principle?? When Kaepernick protested peacefully, he got blackball and doesn't have a NFL jobs. The media didn't scream where is Kaepernick right to freedom of speech. Then media now going and supporting the freedom of speech for this GM for supporting rioters that down shut down airport and transit system. I see through your popaganda.

  28. NBA is cucking down to China what a bunch of weak men?🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣!

  29. Why do you think Hong Konger Calls the CCP (not the Chinese people), Chinazi?

  30. "What's more important, the game, these hard working players, the atmosphere, the spirit of the people watching… or …or the money?"

    NBA counting bills
    "Wait what? I wasn't listening"

  31. the chinese people will not like that

  32. You are crazy if you think that China will stick to One country Two systems. China is making changes slowly hoping that no-one will notice. eg. extradition bill, arresting protestors who wear masks, the Causeway Bay Booksellers disappearances (books which criticised the Chinese government) etc. The only way out is for Hong Kong to have independent rule and self government.

  33. Dear Chinese people, I fully support your decision to part ways with the NBA, South Park, and Apple products. I highly suggest you to also boycott American universities and stop sending your kids here for school.

  34. I also have a personal message to China: suck a fat one.

  35. We never support the right from “right or wrong”, we only support the right from “I have the right”.
    Everything is about freedom in the states, people always have the rights to do what’s not right, that’s why so many maniacs think that they have the freedom to massacre innocent people.

  36. Support Hong Kong, fuck ten cent and fuck chino evil government

  37. When keeping it woke goes wrong

  38. Hypocrite commissioner hypocrite NBA players hypocrite couches it's clear as day they want to throw dirt on Donald Trump which I'm not a trump supporter but when you criticize our president Chinese human rights on display once again but it's nothing new it just on national TV what's going on Hong Kong that's been going on since the Communist Party came into power but long as the NBA can make money damn it don't say a word Hippocrates the whole entire NBA is nothing but hypocrites

  39. Hey NBA! Enjoy all that communist cash! Your shoe deals wouldn’t happen with out slave labor……yea slavery! [snark off]

  40. Only asshole rich idiots would side with COMMIES

  41. Screw china … who the hell does china think they are… china can shove it up there ass
