NBA Stands By Morey

Anti-Government Protests Continue in Hong Kong

Commissioner Adam Silver says the Chinese government asked him to fire Rockets general manager Daryl Morey after he voiced support for the Hong Kong protestors in a tweet earlier this month. Silver,

though, says the league responded to the demand by saying, "There's no chance that's happening. There's no chance we'll even discipline him." A Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson rebuked Silver's

statements saying, "the Chinese government never posed this requirement." Silver did admit the NBA has begun to experience financial problems in China.
