    I wish they did. No star treatment back then.

    More NBA not capitulating:

    "The Nets' 114-111 victory over the Lakers in Shanghai on Thursday was able to happen only with a stipulation by the Chinese government, mandating that no media availability of any kind be held at the game and that NBA commissioner Adam Silver cancel his pregame news conference.

    The league is adopting the same temporary policy for Saturday's game in Shenzhen."

    What good what come from that? I guess I’m just confused on what you’d like everyone to do here?

    You know, not take orders from their Chinese overlords?

    Perhaps boldly let the people of HK know that some members of the NBA might possibly be on their side.

    Potentially make some people who live in the mainland aware that not everyone is necessarily in lockstep with their authoritarian government.

    Show just one modicum of courage.

    What about the rights of our own people also? Morey didn't post anything offensive. I think this is the NBA sticking up for his rights, also trying to save face and not lose a ton of sponsors as well.

    Only a week away.

    Really have little idea how things will turn out.

    Think the Clippers will be the most difficult team to beat in the playoffs.

    Already gave my Orlando opinion.

    Not going out on a limb here saying that Milwaukee finishes 1st in the East in the regular season.

    Phoenix will suck.

    Other than that, as I also mentioned earlier, I think I'll try to keep further predictions for a better time...like 2020.

    It's a gambler's paradise as oddsmakers will have a difficult time getting accurate predictions the first two months.
