    Silver's second statement was quite a bit better than his first, but China is not pleased.

    One stupid tweet from a relatively insignificant NBA person. Jeebus… so sensitive.

    I feel bad for Morey, not the Rockets though....he definitely had no idea what this would turn into.

    Yeah, **** them.

    This really isn’t that difficult to make a call about.

    Nope. Morey should've known better

    I don't disagree but on a human level I feel bad for him.

    If he quits his job then yes. But right now he is basically getting paid and saying **** you to the very person that pays him at the same time

    Talk about a rock and a hard place. I'm sure it's not lost on Kerr that GSW has a ton of Asian American fans, many of whom left China to have a better life in the US - I bet they're not too thrilled with his non-statement.

    I suspect Morey knew what he was doing. Brought a huge amount of press to an issue with minimal work, good for him. And good job Silver with your most recent statement. Boo to all y'all bitching about money in this thread.

    Yeah, money. China was supposed to be the cash cow that replaced the declining cable revenue. Now where is the money coming from for those future $100 million player contracts?

    God forbid they'll only be $80 million player contracts or the owners have to shave their profits a bit.

    I guess billionaires and multimultimultimultimulti-millionaire 20-somethings will have to not make as much money. How unfortunate.

    Oh, I don't mind. But a lot of players are going to be upset when salary caps start dropping.

    Why do you get to decide what amount of money is enough for everyone?

    We’re over the cap next year anyway. Looks like that makes us a big winner.
