That didn't change when Covington went after Los Angeles Lakers star forward LeBron James for his recent comments on the China debacle now ongoing within the National Basketball Association.

LeBron played a warmup basketball game Wednesday, his first since blasting the Rockets general manager for a tweet supporting protests in Hong Kong that put the NBA, its players, and their financial interests at odds with China and then being criticized for that himself.

Speaking at the "Time 100 Health Summit" in NY on October 17, Silver said that the league was "willing" to endure further losses in revenues from its biggest worldwide market. One such hashtag had garnered almost 100 million views as of Tuesday afternoon, according to Variety. "Yes, we all do have freedom of speech, but at times, there are ramifications for the negative that can happen when you're not thinking about others, and you're only thinking about yourself".

Silver also addressed criticism of the league for its initial response to Morey's tweet, a statement that used the word "regrettable".

Pakistan has until February 2020 to complete implementing FATF action plan
Pakistan was put on greylist by the FATF a year ago and it's causing a loss of $10 billion to Pakistani economy annually. The FATF president's so-called warning is for cosmetic effect.

James has significant business interests of his own in China, including a lifetime contract with Nike, which earns billions from the region, and a film production company now prepping "Space Jam 2" for global release in the coming months. "They don't realize it harms people financially, physically, emotionally and spiritually!" "There's no chance we'll even discipline him".

On Tuesday, James attempted to clarify his position after his initial remarks calling Morey's tweet "misinformed" were widely rebuked on social media. Later, he told reporters he would no longer discuss the situation in Hong Kong.

The protestors in Hong Kong have been demonstrating for weeks in opposition to a bill allowing criminal suspects in the region to be extradited to China under certain situations, according to the BBC.

"I don't have a problem with [athletes speaking out on politics]".
