After Wojnarowski emailed his professional account Holly A press release was issued announcing that he had contacted NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, condemning the league’s interest in China, and accusing the NBA of reviewing support for law enforcement and the military.
The fact is that what you decide to allow and what to review (just like the CCP review decision) is itself a statement about your association’s values. If I am right-if the NBA is more committed to promoting the interests of the CCP than celebrating its motherland-fans should know that this is your opinion. If not, please prove me wrong. Let your players stand up for Uyghurs and Hong Kong people. If they want, let them support US law enforcement. Let them choose to write “Back the Blue” on the jersey. Or “support our troops.” Maybe “God bless America.” What could be more American?
A few hours later, Wonjnarski apologized to Hawley, calling him “disrespectful” and making “a regrettable mistake”.
