Adam Silver NBA Commish is wrong

1st amendment protects freedom of speech against govt etc but does not protect freedom of speech with your employer.

If I make comments that hurt my company I will not go to jail or be killed but I can be fired from my job.

It’s amazing on ESPN how many people don’t understand this in regards to Kaepernick, player comments etc

The Rockets GM can be right in what he said but he hurt the NBA and his teams brand in China therefor he might have to face co sequences. It’s all about $

Well, considering the NBA is playing a preseason game in Tokyo and we did win the 1991 Mirage Bowl..in Tokyo, I can see the tie-in.

Multiple players and coaches have spoken out against OUR United States government.

Not a peep from anybody at the league office.

Now somebody speaks out against a foreign government and a discussion needs to be had on whether or not freedom of speech applies to keeping a job.

I'm not sure whether this is a worse look for the NBA, or if this is a worse look for the American people that bashing China in a pro-democracy way will hurt the NBA image more than bashing America and our own government.

The issue is that the Rockets are the most popular team by far in China. It’s not that what he said was wrong is that it costs the NBA and the team more money


take it to the politics board***
