To be fair, at least Trump has been willing to take China to task over trade, but on this particular issue, the elephant in the room is China's disregard for human rights RE: HK demonstrators, and major players who've commented so far haven't been willing to take that head on.


To be fair:

Trump is trying to get the entire country a better trade and intellectual rights deal so he isn't touching this.

The NBA is trying to get only themselves more money.

Trumps positions on China are as clear as day and have been out there for years. He didn’t need to repeat something everyone is already aware of. Nice try though.

Shit, the list of things China can be hammered on is extensive.
You can focus on any of the following and plenty more I'm forgetting:
1) HK Protesters (as mentioned)
2) Muslims being rounded up
3) Political dissidents spontaneously falling up flights of stairs
4) The organ harvesting news that has been popping up more in various areas of the net
Plenty more options including just basic lack of freedom of, well, any expression.

There is a difference. Trump is an elected politician and he can’t always say whatever he actually thinks. It’s his job to make deals with the devil. Kerr and Popovich are under no such constraints and have made it clear that they view themselves as arbiters of justice and morality, particularly in matters that relate to the NBA. They can have no real comment on the situation but that is going to make them look like hyper-partisan hypocritical a-holes.

China is going to do whatever benefits China, regardless of what Trump says. It's up to the NBA not to let itself get bullied and humiliated by a foreign government.

Trump is one of the first major politicians to take a stand against China. It is laughable to pretend Trump is dodging China.

But but but it’s another country, how can these guys be expected to have an opinion on another country when it’s so complex... the people knighting for these hypocrites look like morons.

On one hand, I can't argue with many of these points.
However, we're talking about a modern day Nazi Germany/USSR. I feel this complicates matters a bit, but I fully admit his position as President makes this not a black & white issue.

He was asked if he thought it was wrong for China to pressure the NBA on this. Trump then criticized Kerr and Pop and never mentioned if he thought China was wrong for pressuring the NBA




Trump has been railing on China long before this issue and hes personally imposed tariffs on the country and hurt their economy. Are you really going to measure his entire stance on China in this one particular moment even after everything hes said and done before this?

re: Trump says Steve Kerr looked “like a little boy” trying not to offend China
When Trump was elected China wasn’t even a major issue. 3 years later it feels like we’re on the verge of a Cold War with China. His animosity for the communist state of China is pretty well established.

This is a valid argument, but it's also a valid argument that he just shoots from the hip with Twitter about things that have nothing to do with politics.

China has been a major issue for nearly 30 years we just didn’t hear about it because they’ve been buying politicians and tech companies. Trump just shed light on it and brought it to the forefront.

I agree, but I don't know if there's a group on planet Earth as thin skinned as the Chinese government who I could easily see getting extremely upset over a few comments in a presser like in the OP.
Now, I would have loved to hear him tell China to get fricked for how they're handling a lot of things, but I can understand why it's not as simple as him shitting on some athletes etc.
