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.”

Unlike Lebron, Shaq went the opposite direction and supported Daryl Morey’s original tweet supporting Hong Kong and free speech in America.
Yahoo reports while most NBA voices have put business priorities first while tiptoeing around the league’s China controversy, Shaquille O’Neal gave voice on Tuesday to what many critics of the league have been espousing.
Free speech and human rights are values worth defending.
Speaking on TNT’s pregame show for the NBA’s opening night, O’Neal broached the subject with candor while supporting Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey for his tweet supporting Hong Kong that launched the ordeal.
Shaq on Daryl Morey/China "One of our best values here in America is free speech we're allowed to say what we want to say and we are allowed to speak out on injustices and that's just how it goes. and if people don't understand that that's something they have to deal with. pic.twitter.com/vefcHSPlMD
