NBA Store Doesn’t Allow You To Put “Free Hong Kong” On Back Custom Jerseys

I am going to set this out and say I found this pretty interesting. The NBA has been in the news quite a bit lately with their push for free speech and social justice (rightfully so).

The NBA continues to preach free speech, equality and at the same time seems to silent anyone who dares to criticize the Chinese government who have been in violation of human rights abuse including in Hong Kong.
