Toronto Raptors defeat Brooklyn Nets 123-107, close out pre-season

Toronto Raptors defeat Brooklyn Nets 123-107, close out pre-season”

At Friday night's National Basketball Association game between the Brooklyn Nets and the Toronto Raptors, 300 Chinese pro-democracy activists appeared in masks and shirts reading "Stand With Hong Kong".

Both Tsai and James have attempted to manipulate Houston Rockets general manager Dary Morey's tweet supporting Hong Kong protesters.

China has portrayed the protesters as violent separatists and the backlash against Morey's comments has cast a cloud over the NBA's lucrative broadcasting, merchandising and sponsorship interests in the country, where it has legions of fans. "They're all wearing "Stand With Hong Kong" t-shirts", Ali tweeted. They start things off talking about Kyrie Irving's first "real" game as a Nets considering dude was knocked out right at the beginning of the Lakers' game in China.

"Producer and activist Andrew Duncan bought 300 tickets to tonight's Nets vs Raptors game and is hosting hundreds of Chinese pro-Democracy activists to protest the National Basketball Association".

The statement said activists plan to continue protests at National Basketball Association games across the U.S. and Canada.

Since the row began, the National Basketball Association has found itself under pressure from United States politicians and media outlets who have urged the league not to buckle under Chinese criticism, or even to withdraw from the Chinese market completely.
