Shaq on NBA-China Controversy “One of our Best Values Here in America is Free Speech”

Lebron James took a lot of heat from free speech advocated having appeared to have sided squarely with China over Hong Kong and making the argument that with freedom of speech comes many negatives and ramifications.

“We all talk about this freedom of speech, 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.”
