Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailycaller.com: “Los Angeles Lakers Event In China Canceled Amid Trouble Between The League And Government”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A Los Angeles Lakers event that was supposed to take place in China on Wednesday isn’t going to happen.

The NBA Cares event in Shanghai involving the Los Angeles Lakers was canceled Wednesday just hours before it was scheduled to begin, adding to the fallout from a recent tweet by Rockets GM Daryl Morey that showed support for anti-government protesters in Hong Kong.

The NBA would only say that calling off the event, which was supposed to benefit the Special Olympics, was not its decision.

This situation with China is spiraling out of control, and something has to be done. It’s time for Adam Silver to tell the Nets and Lakers to get on the plane and go home.

The Chinese have turned their backs on the NBA because the Houston Rockets general manager had the audacity to tweet support for the protests in Hong Kong. (RELATED: ‘South Park’ Effectively Banned In China After Critical Episode ‘Band In China‘)
