    No matter what Lebron said the General manager is at fault. Besides, common sense would tell you that Lebron was actually showing support for the people of Hong Kong.

    God Dame I hope Lebron James gets hit head on by an 18-Wheeler. Such a fucking Arrogant Douche Bag who 1. Actually needs to educate himself on the situation and China’s Dictatorship and 2. Realize besides a couple fanboys who want to suck his cock nobody gives to fucks what his black ass thinks just because he can dunk a basketball. Wow congratulations you’re 6ft 8 and black of course u can play basketball but 6ft 8 and black doesn’t mean u are educated. Lebron has a fucking HS Diploma he needs to shut those big ass negroid lips

    Uneducated fool. Daryl Morey support the cause for the people of Hong Kong. All Lebron see are the mighty $$$$$$$$$$$$$. What about the people of Hong Kong that are going to be secretly executed when Mainland China take over. Money over lives. Freaking greedy SOB.

    He definitely ain't no Kap. Punk ass sellout, those people are getting harmed and killed for speaking but he can't say anything, but when some ghetto thug gets his punk ass shot and killed (and they deserve it) he sure got a lot to say then. When something real is happening he is silent. He is a piece of shit, guess if there not black it's ok to enslave and kill them. We will remember LeBron.

    The United States has freedom of speech, but unless you change your mind, you will feel embarrassed, especially in politics. Politicians will attack your speech.

    LeBron basically said Morey didn’t know about the fallout of his words. In no way did cuz say Morey was wrong. And that’s what everybody in the NBA is saying. They’re not saying Morey was wrong but they’re saying HE shouldn’t be the one to say it, cuase of what it does to other people who aren’t even involved.

    I don't understand what's happening here. LeBron basically said what we all know: there's consequences to what you say. So why the fake outrage and controversy?

    He's a sellout, his whole carreer is a sellout, keeps changing teams and asking for the best players. Sellout! Even the school he said he opened for black kids, was not financed by him… look it up.

    You guys can point fingers, but you can't take it.
    This is freedom of speech.

    Unlike the lot of us, he's actually stepped foot in China. And it's actually not that bad a place to live in. And the HK "protests" or riots/terrorism is something with much more drastic consequences than wearing a shirt that says "I can't breathe".

    If we had Chinese people or celebrities that incited support and widespread reform of the many unjust acts that we engage in, we would lose our shit. Think about that.
    We're okay with forming echo chamber thoughts about a place we've never been to nor want to experience, yet we're so fragile that we would lose all rationality when someone decides not to join the bandwagon.

    Lebron James is not Chinese. Lebron does not live in China or Hong Kong. The Hong Kong protests against Mainland extradition has absolutely nothing to do with Lebron. People take on causes that affect them or their own people. Why do people expect Lebron to be cool with someone risking a billion-dollar empire, in which he plays a major role in, to hop on a cause that has nothing to do with him?

    Honestly despite their supporters Lebron has millions to loose just for opinions. In reality what can the people of Hong Kong expect for him to do? Shoot explosive basketballs? Does he have an army? Does he have any political power? No he doesn’t and it’s a wise choice he did.

    I know the ramification and consequences he is talking about is his money and sponsors in China. You shouldnot be selling the basic principles of his success just to sell some more sneakers and jersey and sucking up to China..

    For Lebron, to say that Daryl Morey was just thinking about himself is crazy, he was not just thinking about himself, he was not thinking about himself at all, he was thinking about the people of HK and China, He was thinking about their freedom. Lebron on the other hand was only thinking about himself and his money. To Lebron, their freedom is just as important as your's is.

    Most people or media use pro-democracy/free-speech when they report on HK related issues these days. However, you guys have not seen how violent the situation in HK is. It is violence and chaos that most people are against, not freedom. HK people do have all the rights but violence and chaotic protest are definitely not tolerable. #HKBELONGSTOCHINA#StandWithLebron

    You just blame on James for his point of view , but have you ever look at what is really happening in Hk? So not supporting protesters who are destroying hk is a wrong thing?

    Isn't what James said a practice of FREEDOM OF SPEECH?
    Or is that what you guys words are FREEDOM OF SPEECH but not his?
    I saw no respect of his view of point here.
    Then who are the shallow ones?

    Use your common sense and understand what Lebron James is saying which is is, if everyone in the NBA is going to stand with Hong Kong, then it should be done collectively. Don't use your emotions and throw everyone into that decision without discussing it. I absolutely think that's fair, his not a slave and so, he is allowed to stand and protect his interest!

    LeBron meant his earnings is aligned with CCP interests. Well little did he knew that the CCP NOW wants this NBA Hong Kong festa tuned down bc they don't want people here to learn about the issues in HK and how much the CCP can assert their will on the world.

    SILENCE IS GOLDEN Cool to know that LeBron is still sane and not being too PC or being Social Justice Warrior when is sports. Get politics out from sports. The court is no place to be making statements. Its for people with common interest but different culture to build understanding.

    Lebron is right. HK is a part of communist china, so those protester have no chance having democracy there. Rockets GM only cause problems tweeting crap, as if he can/willing to do something besides tweeting to help them. His fat ass should shut the fuk up, tweet his dog. All these lebron haters and rockets gm are miseducated. Lebrons right this time.

    Anyone who supports China is supporting communism. So Lebron is pro-communist. He's just not smart enough to realize what he is saying.

    One of the so-called "Intolerable Acts" that caused the Americans colonists to rebel against the British Empire was a Parliamentary enactment that required Americans to be tried by juries not in America, but in England, meaning not by their peers but by people who lived in a distant place. Those British juries would not have been totalitarian as are the magistrates on the Chinese mainland who dispense "justice." Hong Kong, with it more than a century-long traditions of liberal values, has had among the rights of its citizens the right to be tried by a jury of their peers. That right was kept in place when Britain ceded Hong Kong to China. The recent Chinese government's decision try Hong Kong citizens on the mainland is why the current protest started.

    LeBron James is the one who is "misinformed." If he were an informed American, he would know the right to jury of one's peers in one of the inalienable right listed in the Constitution and is regarded as a human right in most free places. The NBA is an association of 30 billionaire plutocrats who would steal a dime from their dead mother's eyelid if they could. They don't give a damn about the rights of Chinese people nor even citizens of the US. They care about building their own billionaire piles. Their interest in China is milking a cash cow; human rights is just a meaningless externality to that effort for Adam Silver and all of his employers.

    I have admired LeBron James in the past, but here he shows that his fundamental nature is pursuit his own self-interest and an odious rejection of American values. A one sentence tweet supporting protesters defending their own freedoms is called "misinformed" by LeBron. Why, surely he doesn't want the people Hong Kong oppressed by having their right to a local trial taken away? No, it is the money–the financial opportunity for LeBron's brand along with the NBA owner's venal expectations.

    Now, why did LeBron James make such a statement? Not because of the tweet, but because the Chinese government went ballistic at the tweet. In America, we are free to say what we think and the state is our servant. What is just an expression of private opinion here is a threat to totalitarian rule in China here the people are the servants of the state. LeBron James is so misinformed that he damns a fellow American for expressing a private opinion. He is doing the work of China's totalitarian leaders.
    They called and he saluted to protect basketball shoe sales.

    This was a dropping away of LeBron's wholesome pose. This is LeBron James' equivalent of Michael Jordan's, "Republican buy sneakers" (a response to a question about a racist running for federal office from Jordan). It was a revelation that money is more important to LeBron than the rights of human beings and the values of the American founding. He's lost my admiration. Apparently, he'll take social stands only when it serves his personal wealth gathering.
