Jason Whitlock of Outkick.com says he knows what is wrong with the NBA. The NBA is doomed because it is hopelessly tied to Communist China.
Senator Marsha Blackburn (R–TN) wrote in an opinion piece for the Wall Street Journal, “The NBA’s Moral Failure in China … Quick to take up the banner of ‘social justice’ in the U.S., the league turned a blind eye to abuse and neglect at its training academies in Xinjiang.”
The issue Blackburn referred to is reports of neglect and abuse at the league’s basketball training academies in Xinjiang, China.
An ESPN report suggested the NBA willingly ignored the irony of placing a basketball training facility in one of the least “Social Justice aware” regions of the world. The training academy is located in:
A region notorious for the mass murder of Uighur Muslims and other ethnic minorities, compulsory political re-education, and one of the most extensive internments of civilians in concentration camps since the Holocaust.
As Blackburn notes, the NBA is afraid of sacrificing any more of China’s $4 billion fan base. With ratings plummeting amid the league’s embracement of leftwing social activism, it looks like the clock is ticking on the days of professional sport’s love affair with the progressive ideals.
