NBA blocks freehongkong on jerseys

not a good move on their part.
the NBA lets you put custom names on the back of a jersey

but freehongkong is blocked.

(i verified this myself after hearing about it)

a stupid move

It was a heroic struggle and we should have supported them to the hilt.


How about “free just ■■■■■■■ play basketball”?

you can put anything you want on your jersey. except free hong kong

Pretty sure there are a lot of things you can’t put on on the back of a jersey.

How did you verify this ? link ?

I was just able to , so maybe they changed it ?

For what ?

She had a segment last night showing her producers exchanging messages with some nba rep about this, and how the conversation progressed until they changed it.
