LeBron James addressed the controversy between the NBA and China and was critical of the Houston Rockets GM, Daryl Morey.
“I’m not here to judge how the league handled the situation. I just think that, when you’re misinformed or you’re not educated about something – and I’m just talking about the tweet itself – you never know the ramifications that can happen.
We all see what that did, not only did for our league but for all of us in America, for people in China as well.
Sometimes you have to think through the things that you say that may cause harm not only for yourself but for the majority of people. I think that’s just a prime example of that,” the star of the LA Lakers told reporters.
James later took to Twitter to clarify his remarks, insisting that he was not commenting on the substance of Morey’s tweet.
