The National Basketball Association (NBA) has a reputation for allowing players to speak out on issues of justice and discrimination. Some call it ‘the woke league’. However, when Houston Rockets’ GM Daryl Morey tweeted support for the Hong Kong democracy movement, his owner, some players, and his league, rebuked him and rejected his statement.
Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam agrees to withdraw the extradition bill that drove massive crowds to the streets for the past three months, but the protesters almost immediately say she concedes too little, too late. They have four more demands and a commitment to hang in there until they get them.
