Advertisement Supported by ByBilly Witz July 16, 2019 NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. — College basketball’s familiar faces — Mike Krzyzewski, John Calipari, Roy Williams, Tom Izzo, Jay Wright and on and on — convened last week at a recreation center here in South Carolina, as they have for years in mid-July, to scout the best high school talent in the country. But none of them were present for the biggest draw on Court 5 one day last week at the Peach Jam tournament, where hundreds of spectators lined up three hours before an afternoon game that featured players 15 and younger.

We knew this would come back to LeBron James. James didn’t retweet a message supporting Hong Kong protesters and propel the NBA in a costly conflict with the Chinese government. That was Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey. And James didn’t start the U.S.-China trade war that provides the backdrop for all this controversy. That was Donald Trump, the U.S. president and James’ frequent foil. But after 10 days of deleted tweets, clarifications and apologies, cancelled broadcasts of pre-season games in China and the Chinese Basketball Association leading several companies in suspending their NBA relationships, it fell to the league’s most famous player to make a statement on human rights, free speech and the power of basketball to bridge political rifts.

The left-wing activist made waves Monday evening after proclaiming that Morey “wasn’t educated on the situation” in Hong Kong and suggested that the general manager’s tweet could have had “ramifications for the negative”: LeBron comments on Daryl Morey’s China tweet: "I believe he wasn't educated on the situation at hand and he spoke."
