About this Episode

Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey tweeted his support of Hong Kong. Then, he deleted it. Too late. A firestorm erupted which led to Morey apologizing to China, the Rockets apologizing to China, the NBA apologizing to China and NBA superstar James Harden praising the communist nation.
