The spokesperson said that during the Chinese National Day and Mid-Autumn Festival that just passed, the NBA expressed holiday wishes to Chinese fans.

On October 8 last year, CCTV Sports Channel issued a statement saying that we noticed that NBA President Adam Xiaohua, who was participating in an event in Japan, responded to Houston Rockets general manager Morey’s improper remarks about Hong Kong. We strongly dissatisfy and oppose Adam Xiaohua's claim that he supports Morey's right to free expression. We believe that any speech that challenges national sovereignty and social stability does not belong to the scope of freedom of speech. For this reason, CCTV Sports Channel decided to immediately suspend the current broadcast arrangements for the NBA preseason (China Game) and immediately investigate all cooperation and exchanges involving the NBA.
