For a while now, The National Basketball Association has always had their preseason against foreign teams and in foreign countries. Much of the time, the teams the NBA teams play against in the preseason are Chinese teams. In China, the NBA is very popular, making China one of the NBA’s biggest supporters in the world. This is partly the reason why Houston Rockets’ general manager Daryl Morey sparked controversy when he tweeted an image that said, “fight for freedom, stand with Hong Kong”. The tweet has since been deleted.
