You know, doesn't it seem there would be some point, with all this banning, that Chinese consumers would say.."What happened to that blonde-haired big nose"? or "What happened to Houston Rockets?"

Imagine the NBA grew some balls and told the Chicoms to screw off until they changed their tune on Hong Kong and the Uighurs and Tibet and organ harvesting and .......

Would the Chinese people buy the inevitable propaganda or would they miss the NBA?

Would they buy it?
They will believe what the government tells them to believe.

Would they miss the NBA?

Probably not.
The Chinese government could probably get away with simply playing old Yao Ming highlight films.

And Yao makes all his foul shots, LeBron gets ejected for an egregious foul and Yao takes off from the top of the key with a one handed dunk and the glass of the backboard breaks.

This is more accurately a "problem with the chinese in the US"

A Chinese born naturalized American citizen becomes a US Navy officer with a top secret clearance....and he's a spy with his wife.

Why are we giving top secret clearances to Chinese born? It's a proven risk.
A U.S. Navy officer and his wife were arrested last week in Florida by the FBI and naval authorities on charges that they conspired to smuggle inflatable military-style boats from the U.S. to China, authorities said.

Lt. Fan Yang, 34, was assigned to the Maritime Patrol and Reconnaissance Weapons School (MPRWS) at Naval Air Station Jacksonville and held a top-secret security clearance while working in a sensitive anti-submarine warfare unit, according to court documents obtained by Fox News. The documents were filed Oct. 11 in the U.S. District Court Middle District of Florida.



Yang's wife is also accused of submitting false and misleading export information and fraudulently trying to export illegal merchandise from the U.S. to China.

Prosecutors alleged that the couple was in contact with two Chinese nationals and were paid $205,000 to smuggle inflatable boats from September 2018 through October of this year, according to the court documents. It is illegal for a foreign national to get a weapon.

Investigators found more than 400 emails between Yang and Ge Songtao, a Chinese national, over the course of three years, court filings said. Songtao and another Chinese agent were arrested in Louisiana over the weekend.

Prosecutors alleged that Songtao was the chairman of Shanghai Breeze Technology Co., which did business with the Yangs, documents said.

The couple was paid through wire transfers from Shanghai Breeze to BQ Tree, LLC, a company that was run by the couple, according to the filings.

Prosecutors said Yang's wife was listed as a chief consultant for BQ Tree and he was listed as a consultant on business cards for the company. Court documents also alleged that Yang helped get Songtao a gun.

Authorities questioned a 2018 trip the Yangs took to Disney World, which he requested the time off from the Navy for. Investigators alleged that the couple instead flew to Sioux City, Iowa.

Records showed the couple purchased a meal, rented a car and brought a flight for a Chinese national to depart from an airfield in Nebraska, according to investigators.

Yang also lied to about having a foreign bank account, and he lied to the government in order to keep his security clearance, court documents said.

Yang was born in China and immigrated to the U.S. in 1999 as a teenager. He became an American citizen in 2006, according to court filings.

The Yangs are expected to appear in federal court on Wednesday.

Given how crowded things are in Hong Kong it is amazing that the protesters were demonstrating about freedom and the right to govern themselves...when they could be screaming to holy hell about the housing crisis.
