NBA exec tweets support of Hong Kong protests

The NBA is playing defense after Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey tweeted in support of the pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong. Morey tweeted, then deleted, an image that said "Fight for Freedom. Stand With Hong Kong." Morey publicly apologized, but within hours Chinese sponsors had pulled money from the Rockets, and Tencent is threatening not to stream Rockets games in China.
