Think the NBA-China drama is about "free speech"? This is former NBA star Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf. In the 90s he protested the US anthem against the first war on Iraq. The NBA suspended & eventually blackballed him. The issue today with NBA-China is also about US foreign policy. The NBA can't oppose U.S. foreign policy, which supports HK separatism and views China as the greatest "threat" to US global dominance (remember all the heat the league got at first for not "standing up" to China).
