Sports News:
Fans support Hong Kong, Tibet at Nets’ 1st game since China

NEW YORK (AP) – A gaggle of followers held indicators, wore shirts and chanted support for Hong Kong and Tibet within the Brooklyn Nets’ first game since coming back from China.

The followers sat behind the backboard close to the Nets’ bench at Barclays Center of their 123-107 loss to Toronto on Friday evening.

The Nets returned this week after enjoying exhibition video games in opposition to the Los Angeles Lakers in Shanghai and Shenzhen. The video games weren’t televised in China after relations between the NBA and Chinese officers turned strained following Houston Rockets basic supervisor Daryl Morey’s tweet in support of pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong.

One signal was aimed at LeBron James and Nets proprietor Joe Tsai, the co-founder of the Chinese e-commerce big Alibaba, who have been important of Morey’s tweet. Tsai wrote a Facebook publish explaining why the since-deleted tweet was upsetting to the Chinese.

Nets guard Kyrie Irving mentioned he understood why the protesters got here to the game.



“I think that when you think about communities across the world, I think that a lot of people would stand for world peace,” he mentioned. “Government gets involved and impacts different communities in different ways. The reality is that as individuals it’s our job to stand up for what we believe in. I understand Hong Kong and China is dealing with their issues respectively, but there’s enough oppression and stuff going on in America for me not to be involved in the community issues here as well.”
