NBA players are mad at NBA Commissioner Adam Silver for not punishing Rockets GM Daryl Morey after he tweeted support for the Hong Kong protestors.
In a private meeting with NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, players from the Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Lakers reportedly criticized the league for their handling of the NBA-China rift.
During the meeting reportedly held last week, the players slammed Silver for saying Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey would receive no punishment for tweeting his support of the pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong.
According to ESPN, the players were upset that Morey was let off the hook. “Several players said they believed that if a player had cost the NBA millions of dollars because of a tweet, there would be repercussions,” ESPN reported.
Apparently, the players were not worried that their league was cooperating with the world’s biggest human rights abuser, nor were they upset that the pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong were being threatened, jailed, and maybe even killed by a partner of the NBA.
Instead, the players were more upset about what they perceived to be the inconsistent way in which Morey was treated for the tweet, and the fact that some had been asked about the situation surrounding Morey before NBA Commissioner Adam Silver had even spoken about it.
It seems that the virtue-signaling from NBA players stops when it affects their paycheck. They are fine yelling about how much America stinks. They are fine yelling about how you need to turn over your firearms. However, when it comes to standing up to the communist Chinese they are silent.
These people are frauds. Also, I can’t confirm this but LeBron James is a Laker which means there is a chance he was one of these players.
