Nike Cuts Ties with Houston Rockets in Support of Maoist Red China

45

We’ve all heard about hypocrite Chairman Lebron James — who has said we need to stand up and speak out when things are wrong — and how he condemned Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey for one short tweet in support of Hong Kong freedom fighters.

His tweet, now deleted, read: “Fight for Freedom. Stand with Hong Kong.”

You might not have heard that Nike is punishing the Rockets for Mr. Morey’s tweet. Nike cut ties with the Houston Rockets on behalf of Red China.

Mind you, Red China is demanding we follow their Maoist values of speech in our own country. They are telling us we are not allowed to speak on behalf of Hong Kong and Americans are falling for it, especially when money is involved as in the cases of the NBA and Apple.

THE PUNISHMENT

National Basketball League (NBA) merchandise was taken out of stores and all of the league’s official Chinese partners suspended ties to the organization after the Houston Rocket’s general manager tweeted support for protesters in Hong Kong.

The Rocket’s general manager later apologized for his tweet, but NBA Commissioner Adam Silver angered Chinese authorities when he said the league supported Morey’s right to freedom of expression, according to Reuters.

Promotional games were canceled with the threat of all games to be canceled.

Managers at five Nike stores in Beijing and Shanghai told Reuters that management sent them a memo stating all Rockets merchandise had to be taken down.

Numerous stores in Shenzhen and Chengdu also removed all Rockets merchandise from their displays and shelves, but thus far, other NBA teams were still on display.

Rockets products had even been removed from the NBA Playzone entertainment centers in Shanghai and Beijing.

The NBA is wildly popular in China, and the league’s business with that country is estimated to be more than $4 billion annually, CNN reported.

China is also Nike’s top source of revenue growth, according to Reuters.

Nike is an evil company. They stand up for disrespect of American values and now they are standing up for Maoist Red China.

  • The “King” is but a well paid puppet serf in the Chinese Communist system. What an embarrassment. Gotta love Barstool Sports.

  • I just became a Houston Rockets fan. Their t-shirts will become a symbol of freedom of expression, and I am going to buy a couple.

  • The CCP thugs won’t be wearing jack boots when they stomp on the necks of their victims. They’ll be wearing Nike sneakers.

  • It’s time for a national boycott of all NIKE products. Since it is apparent that NIKE is a Chinese company, perhaps a 100% Tariff should be imposed on all its Made in China products.

  • I pledge not to watch one minute of pro basketball this year. I apologize to Zion who I watched through his one year of college. It would have been nice to see you play but your communist comrades have ruined it for you.

  • Nike is exactly the kind of corporate irresponsibility and corruption the left is always screaming about. Where are they NOW? Hello? Bueller?

  • With the restrictions being imposed by the woke, antifa, and the Chicoms, is this the beginning of the American Inquisition.

  • Trump is the only President to ever challenge the trade practices that are propelling China to economic dominance. We see what comes along with their economic power – censorship and authoritarianism. The so called “trade war” is ultimately about freedom vs totalitarianism. The fake impeachment is undermining the US in these and the NK nuclear talks as well. I can’t help but wonder if Pelosi is doing their bidding as well.

  • You guys need to quit drinking the Donald Trump koolade
    He’s so far up Putin anus that he can tell you what he ate for breakfast
    Maybe Russia isn’t communist anymore to you
    You got bigger problems than Nike

  • The State of Florida also had a wealth tax called the “Intangible Personal Property Tax”. It was easily circumvented and hard to administer.

  • Let me see if I got this right. Its all about the money right you hipocrates. You want China’s money and make no mistake about it not standing up for freedom makes you look like the asses that you are. Yea, right up there with Kap on this right. Why don’t you just move to China and find out how nice they really are. Oh, wait, can’t do that I love to be able to open my mouth and talk about this country and her issues, but in China I would end up in a reeducation camp. Just ask the Muslims… you know your buddies… see how they like it.

  • Nike…far prior to this debacle (25-30 years), I gave up on Nike’s simply because of their piss poor workmanship. So, I wont be giving up buying them, as I saw that reality a long time ago.

  • Anyone wearing Nike should move to China. Especially the NBA players who are ignoring the 1.4 billions SLAVES in China so they can make money? And tell me why this is different than the slave owners of old?

  • DO YOU SEE !!! DO YOU SEE !!!! THOSE LITTLE KOOL NIKE SHOES YOU BY TO LOOK KOOL IN ARE MADE BY SLAVE LABOR AND OWNED BY THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT . NIKE USED TO BE , I SAY AGAIN USED TO BE AN AMERICAN COMPANY . BUT ALAS LIKE WALMART AND THE CLINTONS THEY SOLD OUT TO THE CHINESE FOR MONEY, LOTS AND LOTS OF MONEY.

  • So, Nike can join the Dementocommiecratscrats that fill the cesspools of the seditious conspiracy to overthrow the LEGITIMATE government of the United States.
    May they succumb to pharmaceutical med in the next few months IN PUBLIC
