It's part of the whole "banned in china" thing that was on southpark for the first 2 or 3 episodes.
The rundown as best as I can explain it:
Since april, people in hong kong have been protesting a law allowing extradition from hong kong to mainland china. There's a lot of reasons why they don't want this, but the long and short is mainland china has two different governments and laws, court systems and prisons; one for hong kong, one for china. In early 2018, 19-year-old Hong Kong resident Chan Tong-kai killed his pregnant girlfriend Poon Hiu-wing in Taiwan, then returned to Hong Kong. Chan admitted to Hong Kong police that he killed Poon, but the police were unable to charge him for murder or extradite him to Taiwan because no agreement is in place. The chinese government introduced a bill allowing people in hong kong to be extradited to taiwan or china. Hong kong is obviously NOT happy about this, because it would allow china to extradite people living in hong kong to china (and chinese prisons/re-education facilities which are quite frankly just glorified gulags.) Hong kong is protesting this bill because they don't want to be sent to a chinese gulag for breaking the law in hong kong, since chinese gulags are hell holes and hong kong prisons and courts are (more) fair.
Daryl Morey, general manager of the Houston Rockets, tweeted that he supported the hong kong protestors. As you might imagine, this pissed off china. So, private businesses in china including ten cent (who controls 90% of the media in china) said they were going to refuse air any rockets games in china, and most Chinese sponsors pulled their sponsorship of the NBA. His single tweet in support of the hong kong protestors is costing the NBA an assload of money. He's deleted his tweet, but ten cent and most of the chinese sponsors are refusing to air/sponsor the games until he's fired.
Does that clarify the issue for you?
