A couple of weeks before the start of the 2019-20 NBA regular season, the league finds itself involved in a controversy with China stemming from a ”now-deleted” tweet from Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey.
Pro-democracy protesters were attacked by what opposition politicians suspected were gang members wearing white t-shirts.
Hong Kong police were criticized over failure to stop the attacks. Instead of responding to calls from the demonstrators to take action against gangster assaults, the police retreated into police stations and let gangsters off easy. No one was arrested.
