Shaq Defends Houston Rockets General Manager

Shaquille “Shaq” O’Neal expressed his support for Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey.

Morey wrote a tweet supporting protesters in Hong Kong.

According to Business Insider, this created tension between the NBA and China.

O’Neal said: “One of our best values here in America is free speech.” “If people don’t understand that, that’s something they have to deal with.” He then defended Morey’s right to “speak up about injustices.”
