    The Nba commissioner Adam Silver is a coward who bows to the Chinese market and leadership only because it will affect his bottom line. That man cares about money more than the integrity of his company and country and he deserves to be called out for his cowardice and inability to stand up to China.

      It's obviously more rational that Trump ban HUAWEI only because he "thought" Huawei is not safe.

          This group of rioters destroyed public facilities, hurting people, attack police station....shame for western media to call this pro democracy and peaceful protesters. Do some fact finding at hong kong instead of misleading the world. Be professional

                      China is still a poor and backward communist country, and people have no freedom or property. The Chinese are eager to get help from the United States. Come and repair railways and power plants. 99% of people in China have not used electricity and trains. Everyone can't get online. Everyone is hungry. We can't afford a year's salary for basketball. All Chinese tourists, entrepreneurs, international students and rich people are Chinese actors who are sent to the world to promote China. The Beijing Olympics is a drama, and China does not have any modern and magnificent infrastructure. People are still as miserable as the Stone Age. The average life expectancy is only 35 years old and the illiteracy rate is as high as 99%. No one has seen cars and planes. Smartphones require 20 years of salary for ordinary people.

                        I take the same stance as the South Park creators making a mock apology after they offended China when they mentioned how it's sad that companies are putting profits about our countries freedom of speech. Yes I understand the companies want to keep making as much money as they can, but I see it as China being sensitive little bitches who want to control the world with their buying power every time they get offended by something said or done that goes against them.

                                        The reason of why china was pissed is bc that tweet offended Chinese concept abt completion of its sovereignty. It's just like the freedom of speech in US,so when someone offend ur freedom of speech,how u were feeling is just as same as how China got offended by others trying to separate its sovereignty.Try to understand,and then everything's gonna be alright.#DiversityMatters

                                            I find a funny thing that every frames about China in the episode, the news network, the people and so on, are full of sense of age...why don't use the current scenery of China? why can't you try to comprehend the history and grows of China more? Emmmmm as a Chinese student my English may be poor, but I truely believe every misunderstanding and discrimination can be eliminated after full investigation and understanding. We learn English is for communicating, not quarreling, so I hope you can understand us, too.

                                                As a international student who love my country and NBA at same time. I don't like the show making “funny jokes” to this thing. Because HongKong is part of China. Supporting HongKongh protest is bad as supporting Bin Ladin on 911. It is not a negotiable topic. I hope this show could make an objective appraisal on this situation.

It is supremacy of some pride western souls of freedom of bitching other ppl’s domestic affairs even earn your billions. I don’t care what i am doing, i do it because i can and i am kinda used to do it and feel so good and progressive, right? If the west still don’t understand what a british Hongkong flag means to Chinese, it’s like you don’t understand what colonization means to Asian, to African, to native Americans. Confederate flag is part of ‘our’ history, yes it is. But sorry, it also means slavery to AA.

It's about the sovereignty for China, like ppl talking about the sovereignty of Alaska or racial equality in US. So why we only laugh when we not really know the other side? Yes, It's sth ppl don't know or don't bother spending time to know that could laugh about like watching the show, but that's a TOTALLY different case for ppl in China, that's not funny for them.

But sadly this is our reality revealing human nature and greed.

Territorial integrity is the bottom lane of China. So many countries invaded China: Japan, Britain, France, Russia etc. China lose so many territory. If you do some research about China’s history, you will figure that out. However, China never invade any countries until now. Now China is strong and powerful. You might think CCP is suck, but remember, they didn’t bomb Syria, Iraq, Libya, destroy their city, and burn their people to the ground.

They will stand for china but disrespect the nation that allows then to? When are idiots going to wake the fuck up and stop supporting these fucks. Take back the tax funded property these stadiums are built on and tell them to get the fuck out
