    Silver's reign as NBA commish is on borrowed time. This won't end well for him.

    I really wouldn't be surprised if the exhibition game is cancelled now. I see the chinese throwing shit at the players.

    "The game marked the first time a North American professional sports league has staged an event in India. It represented the NBA’s strongest push yet to penetrate a market with 1.3 billion people and served as a special homecoming for Kings owner Vivek Ranadive, who left his homeland as a teen to pursue his dreams in the United States."

    ...


    NBA commissioner Adam Silver also addressed the media during a news conference before the game.

    “Of course this is a landmark for the NBA in that it’s our first-ever game on Indian soil,” Silver said. “It’s been a long time in the works.”

    Except they still have to feed their people. No they will not be ruling the world any time soon. At least not if the US can get past buying their crap.

    They will barely feel anything if they stop producing NBA goods. The NBA will lose that war, if it came to it.

    The best timeline involves him removing himself from the nba because of this, then signs a $100 million per year contract in the Chinese league lol

    Nah. There are plenty of ways to get goods produced. Yes they lose the battle maybe but the war would just go to other lands. Mexico, India, Indonesia, Qatar to name a few. China does not have a monopoly on cheap child labor that works for pennies a day.
    Then of course they could also just buy American?

    I really can't believe the NBA is throwing away years and years of goodwill and billions of dollars to stay woke.

    It seems people have forgotten that everything made in China can be made here as well.
