23 Lebron James of the Los Angeles Lakers reacts during a preseason game as part of 2019 NBA Global Games China at Shenzhen Universiade Center on October 12, 2019 in Shenzhen, Guangdong, China. Although Morey quickly apologized and deleted his original tweet, the damage was done.
"I feel like with this particular situation, not only was I not informed enough about - I just felt like it was something not only myself or my teammates or our organization had enough information to even talk about it at that point in time".
James' complaints of a "terrible week" in which the Lakers almost had preseason games cancelled, lamenting how "people could have been harmed, not only financially but physically, emotionally spiritually" by Morey's tweet - "hurt feelings" are a frequent trope used by Chinese propaganda against dissent - and refusal to discuss the politics of a country where he makes millions predictably drew some prime subtweeting from Kanter late Monday night.
While no National Basketball Association affiliated person has openly condemned James' remarks at press time, Boston Celtics player Enes Kanter appeared to criticize James without naming him.
You couldn't have waited a week to send that Tweet, LeBron, because it's what you believed. Meanwhile, Trump has been only laudatory of Chinese leader Xi Jinping's handling of the matter after reportedly promising Xi that his administration would remain silent on the pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong. "Why don't you meet the people there risking their lives for their most basic liberties", Hawley suggested. "So many people could have been harmed"?
Was he going to condemn Daryl Morey?

The NBA limited media availability during the China trip in an effort to contain the political fallout.
"This is absolutely shameful", Fox Sports' Clay Travis said. On Oct. 8, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said "The long-held values of the NBA are to support the freedom of expression and certainly freedom of expression by members of the NBA community". LeBron went to Twitter to defend himself.
"Daryl Morey's educational achievements: Has a B.S.in Computer Science from Northwestern University and an M.B.A. from the MIT", added Ryan Saavedra.
On the court, the mood has been more positive, with fans wildly cheering the players, especially Lakers superstar LeBron James.
In 2014, James warmed prior to a game in Brooklyn in a "I can't breathe" T-shirt in honor of Eric Garner, who died at the hands of police. I do not believe there was any consideration for the consequences and ramifications of the tweet.
"I'm not discussing the substance", he concluded. "Others can talk about that", James said in a tweet. In the next few days, the team will certainly have a better idea of whether or not AD will be good to go by Tuesday.
