On October 4th at 7:41 PM, Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey tweeted an image supporting the citizens of Hong Kong who are fighting for freedom from the Chinese government. This tweet was quickly deleted, and Morey apologized for his actions. Despite the apology, China canceled the streaming of all Houston Rockets games in China.
