Adam Silver warned of ‘retribution’ for allegedly lying about China requesting he fire Rockets GM


NBA Commissioner Adam Silver should fear “retribution” for allegedly lying when he said Chinese officials asked him to fire a Houston Rockets executive over a pro-Hong Kong tweet, state media in China warned Saturday.

The state-run China Central Television broadcast the threat, saying “it is ugly for the president of an internationally influential sports league to openly make up a lie to discredit China,” according to The New York Times. The broadcast added Silver’s alleged lie showed he had character issues.
