What a train wreck. I saw this coming when not only Silver but Kerr and Pop and some parrot players dissed the GM.
They throw a GM and fellow American under the bus first, and then they try to play it both ways with an official statement that really was one version in Chinese but another version in English, then they have ESPN gag Stephen A. calling them out under the guise of doing so the entire network, then no one is falling for their crap and now they are paying the price anyway.
You can’t have it both ways NBA. Silver, Pop, Kerr, and other such blowhards ought move to China. The rest of will stay here and ball just fine with or without the NBA.
I’m done with the NBA for such hypocrisy, arrogance, and sanctimony. They can die off with all these so-called woke hipster types with this decade.
May they be called out more and crash and burn for underestimating the intelligence of their average fan and player with such hubris.
