As I’ve been saying for some time now, the NBA has a massive, massive problem on their hands.
Rockets GM Daryl Morey’s tweet and the NBA’s knee-jerk reaction to bend the knee to the China is something that will haunt them for the entire 2019 season, possibly even further.
Sports commentator and OutKick the Coverage’s Clay Travis addressed the mess in which the NBA currently finds themselves. He called out LeBron James for waiting an entire week to make his remarks in which he called out Morey and said free speech is sometimes dangerous.
He also couldn’t believe that Steve Kerr, the head coach of the Golden State Warriors, didn’t have an opinion on the subject, given his ability to give an opinion on every single person hint in the United States.
Overall, Travis describes himself as a free speech absolutist. His nearly 50-minute talk was both informative and insightful, leaving you with plenty to think about.
If you enjoy listening to Travis at all, I suggest picking up his “Republicans Buy Sneakers, Too” book. Easily the best thing I’ve read in 2019.
