Adam Silver said 'no chance' when China asked to fire Daryl Morey

Lebron James meme

In an interview with Good Morning America's Robin Roberts, Silver said Thursday that China was, in fact, encouraging him to fire Morey for the statement.

The NBA is still struggling with the right response on the issue of China, which accounts for a reported 10 percent of annual revenue for the league.

The page describes the plot as "effective/hilarious", and goes on to detail the political reasons for the protests in Hong Kong (in a nutshell, Hong Kong has made five demands of the Chinese government to protect its rule of law).

Although LeBron James did not exactly back the GM's free speech when asked about it to start the week, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver is unwavering in his insistence that he backs the general manager's ability to express his thoughts. "We wanted to make sure everyone understood we were supporting free expression". "He's going to have more on his shoulders this year, and I think he accepts that".

NBA star Lebron James reportedly pressured the NBA to punish Morey, arguing that if an NBA player had tweeted something similar that cost the league money, said player would have been punished, ESPNs Dave McMenamin said. Silver disagreed that any punishment was warranted because no player or coach is penalized for criticizing President Trump.

As of right now, National Basketball Association games aren't back on the air in China, Silver said at the conference, where he mostly spoke about mental health.

Seconds later, the meat-loving Eric said that students trying to change his lunch "don't realise it harms people financially, physically, emotionally, and spiritually".

The group says Canada is not immune when it comes to the fight against China, pointing out that two Canadians are still being detained following the arrest last December of Huwaei executive Meng Wanzhou in Vancouver.

Lee said the T-shirts will be branded with "The North stand with Hong Kong". "I don't want to get into a word- or sentence-feud with Daryl Morey, but I believe he wasn't educated on the situation at hand, and he spoke".

Those messages, as well as comments Tuesday in which James said, "I also don't think every issue should be everybody's problem as well", did not appear to represent a major success in damage control for him.

Silver addressed the question by first explaining the history between basketball, the NBA and China.

"The losses have already been substantial", he added. "Our video games will not be again on the air in China as we communicate, and we'll see what occurs subsequent". "The financial consequences may go on and be fairly dramatic", he said.
