  1. You can "freedom of speech" all you want. Just be prepare to suffer the consequences.

  2. Should say how does nba defend freedom after kicking people out after chanting freedom for hong kong

  3. "I support the states of the United States to independently support the Indians to take back their own territory. For the sake of freedom, I stand in Osama bin Laden. I think that the 9/11 incident is a great battle for faith. The above remarks are only my personal thoughts and my family company. Irrelevant

  4. You can have your freedom of expression. China has the freedom to stop paying for your service, because your service no longer welcome.

  5. Somewhat reminds me of Kaepernick.
    However, when you are in another person house, you should be sensitive of your behaviour, and not treat it as your own.

  6. I don't understand why so many want to make money in a country while being disrespectful to the core value of their people.

  7. NBA please leaves China and takes your rubbish speech away. Just leave Good-Bye.

  8. Freedom of expression? Does that mean Don Sterling gets the Clippers back?

  9. can china have freedom to boycott, what are all these whining

  10. The fact is he's not support freedome of expression, he's taking side on politics, how stupid is that.

  11. rise up and fight back against communism and their evil tactic. Send them back to their dark ages

  12. "If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." – Samuel Adams, Father of American Revolution

  13. China have the freedom to not want democracy. What hypocritical of the so call democratic world forcing democracy down peoples throats. How ironic! Think people, think!!!

  14. What is the difference between the freedom of expression between the Clippers owner who was forced to sell his shares and the freedom of expression of the Houston GM who was defended by NBA?….hypocrites

  15. Sad day when the NBA defends "Freedom of Expression" but does not condemn the violence that these mob and rioters are doing in HK. These mob and rioters are taking away the freedom of regular HK citizens to live peacefully.

  16. On a side note, does anyone else think how ironic that the ad I saw at the start of this video was for Shen Yun??? ;).

  17. When is the NBA going to come out and condemn China for it's censorship, concentration camps, and banning of religions!!

  18. NBA how much money is human rights worth?

  19. Sure, that's your right. It's also China's right to shut your games down in China. =P

  20. So that means the NFL should allow players to bend the knee, right? You have no principles other then the almighty dollar. Get ready to loose that 4 billion dollar franchise.
