NBA official statement

NBA chief communications officer, buzz, released the following statement today:
We are extremely disappointed with the inappropriate remarks made by Daryl Morley, general manager of Houston rockets. He has undoubtedly seriously hurt the feelings of Chinese fans. Morey has clarified that his remarks do not represent the position of the rockets and NBA. Under the values of NBA, people can get to know and share their views on things of interest. We respect the history and culture of China very much. We hope that sports and NBA will serve as a positive energy for solidarity and continue to build bridges for international cultural exchanges and bring people together.
