Hong Kong basketball fans held “Stand with Morey. Stand with Hong Kong” basketball night at Wan Chai Southorn streetcourts, an iconic venue for Hong Kong basketball, in support of Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey, who has been under fire for voicing his support for Hong Kong freedom movement.
The organizers hope to thank Daryl Morey, Adam Silver, Enes Kanter among others for supporting Hong Kong’s fight for freedom. Many came in their NBA jerseys.
“Basketball taught me courage” was one of the main themes of the event.
Hong Kong basketball fans, amidst heavy rain, stood in formation of the letters “MOREY”.
“Thank you Morey”, “Thank you Silver”, “F**k off James”, “Five demands, not one less” were common chants of the nights.
Some burned LeBron James’ NBA jersey.
