China is not happy with the NBA at the moment. Earlier this week, Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey tweeted out an image that read: “Fight for Freedom. Stand with Hong Kong.” The statement was in support of anti-government protests in Hong Kong which have been longstanding and sometimes violent. In response to his tweet, Chinese state-run television network CCTV said it will suspend its scheduled coverage of NBA preseason games, including today’s game between the Los Angeles Lakers and Brooklyn Nets.
