Given the issues with the NBA and China as a result of Morey's comments and commissioner Silvers response, there is a very good possibility that the preseason games between LAL and the Nets could be cancelled. China has already indicated that the games would not be aired in China. I guess we will see in the next day or so. I had my DVR set to record both games and will be bummed if they are cancelled. I can't help but think (assuming the probability is truly high that they will get cancelled) the league should just get the teams back to the US so they can play the games here.

If that's the case, they should set something else up. I found it sort of strange having all these over sea's preseason games.

I hope they play them! I want to see this team play together more! I haven’t had this much excitement for a season in years. I really love how Adam silver has run this league though. David stern would have buckled under the pressure and made sure Morey was fired or heavily fined. Instead he backed his right to speak openly because that’s what our American values are all about!

He backed free speech because they lost the Chinese government’s and Chinese oligarchs after Daryl Morey wasn’t fired by the rockets. At that point he had nothing to lose other than American support for the NBA. It’s about the money. The guy has done some undemocratic things with the NBA. I haven’t exactly agreed with everything the last two commissioners have done but I agree with this decision even if it’s been done for reasons that are selfish. Especially considering they’re going to open basketball to India they aren’t as worried about China even though Modhi is a fascist!

But at least the NBA executives have talked with the Lakers and Nets organizations & players about whether they wish to cancel the game. I get not wanting to disappoint fans but they may be arrested if they fly into China and it’s not Hong Kong. I wouldn’t do it without guarantees the trip will run smoothly. Otherwise just cancel the game

I'd be surprised to see it cancelled at such short notice but all the NBA affiliated sponsors are cancelling real quick in support of the government so it's going to be touch and go.
