NBAs idea of freedom

Nationalists and supporters of the Communist Party in China claimed to be outraged by the general manager of the Houston Rockets, who had tweeted the words Fight for freedom, stand with Hong Kong”. China’s state broadcaster, cctv, suspended broadcasts of games involving America’s National Basketball Association. Other Chinese firms severed ties with it. Basketball stars are still free to criticise America.
