Nice to see NBA bigwigs continuing to bend over backwards to avoid offending the Chinese government’s delicate sensibilities. After Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey tweeted his solidarity with the Hong Kong protesters, he was essentially forced to back down. Brooklyn Nets owner Joe Tsai would just like to state for the record that he’s sure Morey’s a great GM and all, but standing with a “separatist movement” as Morey did is just straight-up unacceptable:

Good Lord.

Good point:

They might as well have written it.
