you're upset about trump.  but the nba-china thing really has little to do with him.

 

the outrage one side is concerned about is that china is bad and has 1 million uighurs in concentration camps.  that same side dislikes trump causing trade problems with china.

 

it's all nuts.

We are able to make 7000 T shirts, which is 2000 more than our original target ! We will cover 35% instead of 25% of the audience! That's 1/3 of the arena!

The Raptors have not endorsed the t-shirt giveaway, and, given the fiasco in which the NBA has embroiled itself, I am sure they won’t. But it is nice to see fans stepping up.

 

In principle, it is not good that most Americans pay more attention to sports than to current events, so that the plight of Hong Kong is debated mostly as the result of a basketball general manager’s tweet. But at least both sides are being heard, which is different from what you usually see in today’s “news” media.

A Lakers Fan Raised Almost $43k to Hand Out “Stand with Hong Kong” T-Shirts at the Season Opener

 

 

https://www.lamag.co...ng-kong-lakers/

 

 

Lared took to the Lakers’ Reddit page to announce his plan to make the shirts and hand them out for free during the game on October 22. To fund the venture, Lared launched a Gofundme with a goal of $20,000; the project raised nearly $43k before donations were disabled.

 

 

 

 

On Tuesday, LeBron James became embroiled in the China-NBA-Hong Kong flap, when he called out Morey for his tweet saying, “So just be careful what we tweet and say and we do, even though, yes, we do have freedom of speech, but there can be a lot of negative that comes with that, too.”

 

This led to many Hong Kong protesters to retaliate by gathering on courts to trample on LeBron jerseys and even burn one.

 

Lared has continued to give fans and supporters updates on Twitter regarding the T-shirts; most recently Lared was looking for volunteers to help hand out the shirts.
