NBA Commissioner Adam Silver Attempted to defend his company’s incredibly cozy relationship with Communist China during an interview with Time magazine.

Silver claimed that in order to ‘bring about change’ it was important to ‘build relationships.’

As The Daily Wire reports:

Speaking with TIME magazine, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver excused the league’s chummy relationship with the government of Communist China, saying, “We think exporting NBA basketball to China and to virtually every country in the world continues to fit within our mission,” adding, “I do think that in order to bring about realistic change, we have to build relationships.”

TIME asked Silver, “What’s the state of the NBA’s relationship with China?”

We continue to televise our games in China,” Silver answered. “Our most significant television partner is Tencent, which is a streaming service in China. And we have hundreds of millions of fans in China who we continue to serve. I’ll take a step back there and restate the NBA’s mission, which is to improve people’s lives through the game of basketball.”

Bobby Burack of Outkick commented, “Silver says it’s the NBA’s ‘mission to improve people’s lives through the game of basketball.’ Really? The NBA is so concerned with improving lives that its top players are cashing checks from two Chinese sneaker companies, Li-Ning and Anta, that proudly profit from Muslim slave labor.”

Dont care what they say or how they try to spin it, I am never watching a game, never did and I hope the rest of the country does the same. They need to taste a bit of the excrement that they have fed the rest of the country, then they may just stick to sports and stop trying to please the masters of the democrat party and China.

Well said. People really need to stop watching ALL professional sports, period! Doesn’t anyone care that these overprivileged, no talent, big mouths hate us and hate our country who through capitalism made them very wealthy. Just shut up and dribble.

NBA headquarters would more appropriately be located in Shanghai.

‘To bring about realistic change’? What if we DON’T want to change? America is already moving much too far from freedom and personal liberties. The last thing we need is for the NBA to nudge us even further – Lebron James! His comments and his position absolutely DO NOT help impressionable, young Americans see the truth about what is really going on!

When the Commie Joe Panty Sniffer turns this country over to China. They will be on the “Plantation” hoeing cotton for uncle Xping. Their relationship is slave labor. They can scream raciest all they want and get their overpaid ass shot full of BLM 7.62. I doubt China cares once they have their boot on their neck.

They claim all of this good stuff as they continue to dump on whites in this country. I quit watching all sports now because of the perceived support of a marxist movement that is hell bent on the destruction of our country.

All professional sports stop watching. They asked for it let’s give it to them. Live like a normal human being. God made us all special in our own unique way. Sports exploit that in a bad way

Silver watch your viewership continue to decline in the U.S.
If you want to be in bed with the enemy send your league there.
Endorsement money will evaporate here and won’t support the salaries

I stopped watching all sports due to all of the Anti-American bull💩. The owners and managers shouldn’t pay these jerks the salaries they think their worth. If it wasn’t for this country, they wouldn’t have a damn thing. The Anti-American idiots can all go to hell!
