Former NBA point guard Ty Lawson, who was banned for life from the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) after posting inappropriate photos on his Instagram story, speaks out on the Chinese league ban:

“I’m probably the least racist guy you’ve ever met in your life, like I have fun with anybody. ‘Cakes’ means that she had a nice body. That’s it, you’re taking it too far. I meant no disrespect, and all the racism and disrespect coming towards me is wild … Anybody who knows me in China knows I’m not that person, at all. I was literally saying that she had a nice body, and I danced at a club,” Lawson said, via ClutchPoints.
