NBA postpones media sessions in Shanghai amid China rift

By Tim Reynolds, Associated Press NBA Commissioner Adam Silver told the Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday that the league is still expecting them to play as scheduled this week, even while the rift between the league and Chinese officials continued in ways that clearly suggested the two planned games in Shanghai and Shenzhen were anything but guaranteed. The NBA called off scheduled media sessions Wednesday for both teams. At least two other NBA events to be held Wednesday before the start of the China games were canceled as part of the fallout that started after Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey posted a since-deleted tweet last week that showed support for anti-government protesters in Hong Kong. "Given the fluidity of the situation, today's media availability has been postponed," the league said. They were not rescheduled Wednesday, though having them on Thursday — game day in Shanghai — remains possible. Later Wednesday in Washington, a bipartisan group of lawmakers — including the rare alignment of Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York — sent a letter to Silver saying the NBA should show the "courage and integrity" to stand up to the Chinese government. They asked the NBA to, among other things, suspend activities in China until what they called the selective treatment against the Rockets ends. "You have more power to take a stand than most of the Chinese government's targets and should have the courage and integrity to use it," the lawmakers told Silver. The NBA did not have any immediate comment on the letter, and it was unclear if Silver had even seen the document. In Shanghai, the mood surrounding the game that — if played — will feature LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and other big NBA names was anything but festive. An NBA Cares event that was to benefit the Special Olympics was called off, as was a "fan night" celebration that was to be highlighted by the league announcing plans to refurbish some outdoor courts in that city. And workers in multiple spots around Shanghai were tearing down large outdoor promotional advertisements for Thursday's Lakers-Nets game. The teams are also supposed to play Saturday in Shenzhen. Chinese smartphone maker Vivo has joined the list of companies that have suspended ties with the NBA for now, only adding to the uncertainty surrounding the China games. Vivo was a presenting sponsor of the Lakers-Nets games, and on Wednesday there was no reference to the game in Shanghai on the list of upcoming events scheduled at Mercedes-Benz Arena. Other firms such as apparel company Li-Ning announced similar moves earlier this week, as the rift was just beginning. Silver said Tuesday in Tokyo that he supports Morey's right to free speech. Several Chinese companies have suspended their partnership with the NBA in recent days, and Chinese state broadcaster CCTV said it will not broadcast the Lakers-Nets games. "I'm sympathetic to our interests here and to our partners who are upset," Silver said. "I don't think it's inconsistent on one hand to be sympathetic to them and at the same time stand by our principles." All around China, stores that sell NBA merchandise were removing Rockets-related apparel from shelves and many murals featuring the Rockets — even ones with Yao Ming, the Chinese great who played for Houston during his NBA career — were being painted over. Effects were even felt in at least one NBA arena Tuesday night. In Philadelphia, where the 76ers were playing a Chinese team — the Guangzhou Loong Lions — two fans were removed by arena security for holding signs and chanting in support of Hong Kong. The signs read "Free Hong Kong" and "Free HK." The sentiment was not different from Morey's since-deleted tweet last week of an image that read, "Fight For Freedom. Stand With Hong Kong." The 76ers and Wells Fargo Center, the team's home arena, released statements Wednesday confirming that the fan removal took place and explaining why. "During the second quarter of last night's 76ers game, Wells Fargo Center security responded to a situation that was disrupting the live event experience for our guests," the arena's statement said. "After three separate warnings, the two individuals were escorted out of the arena without incident. The security team employed respectful and standard operating procedures." The NBA is not the first major corporation to deal with criticism from China over political differences. Mercedes-Benz, Delta Air Lines, hotel operator Marriott, fashion brand Zara and others also have found themselves in conflicts with China in recent years. After Morey's tweet was deleted, Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta said Morey does not speak for the organization. Joe Tsai, who recently completed his purchase of the Nets and is a co-founder of Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba, has said the damage to the NBA's relationship with China "will take a long time to repair." ___ Reynolds reported from Miami. AP Sports Writer Dan Gelston in Philadelphia and Associated Press writer Yanan Wang in Beijing contributed to this report......»»

PHI takes away one gold from dominant THA in SEA Games sailing

SUBIC - Thailand dominated 2019 Southeast Asian Games sailing, but the Philippines came away with the most prized medal in the awarding ceremony, Saturday at the Yacht Club here. Filipinos Emerson Villena and Troy Tayong got the gold medal in men's international 470 sailing by garnering a better score than Thailand’s Navee Thamsoontorn and Nut Butmarasri as well as Malaysia’s Mohamad Faizal Norizan and Ahmad Syukri Abdul Aziz who won silver and bronze, respectively. Still, Thai skippers were the biggest winners in sailing in the regional meet as they took home five of the seven gold medals awarded Saturday. They swept the women’s side with Chonakchon Wangsuk and Piyaporn Khemkaew ruling the international 420, Kamolwan Chanym reigning the laser radial, and Noppassorn Khunboonjan winning the optimist events. Wangsuk and Khemkaew had 14.0 points at the end of 10 rounds and came out on top of silver medalists Rhegielyn Boyano and Coleen Jem Ferrer of the Philippines who had 20.0 points as well as Nor Nabila Natasha Mohd Nazri and Gabrielle Yong Poquita of Malaysia who had 25.0 points. Kamolwan's win was just as decisive as her 12.0 points after Round 8 were far and away better than silver medalist Victoria Chan of Singapore's 14.0 and bronze medalist Nur Shazrin Mohammad Latif of Malaysia's 21.0. Khunboonjan, meanwhile, scored 20.0 points when 10 rounds came to a close as compared to Radiance Koh of Singapore's 25.0 points for the silver and May Myat Noe Khin of Myanmar's 34.0 points for the bronze. Things weren’t much different over at the men’s side as Thais also won the international 420 and optimist events. The pair of Jedtavee Yongyuennarn and Chakkaphat Wiriyakitti finished first with 16.0 points at the end of 10 rounds in the international 420. Silver then went to Malaysians Muhammad Fauzi Kaman Shah and Umar Al Farouk Mohd Zahawi while the bronze went to Filipinos Jericko Marbella and Brandhon Kyrielle Aquino. The last gold of the day was claimed by Singapore for men's laser sailing as Ryan Lo scored 11.0 points in eight rounds. Thai Keerati Bualong had 17.0 points to seize silver as Malaysian Khairulnizam Mohd Affendy had 27.0 points to bag bronze. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

SEA Games: Records fall as Team PHI continues hauling in gold medals

Athletics bets reset new marks in their respective events as Team Philippines scooped up more gold medals on different fronts to add to its growing collection on Saturday in the 30th Southeast Asian Games. Kristina Marie Knott won gold and shattered the 2001 meet record set by Supavedee Khawpeag of Thailand in the women’s 200m. dash, clocking 23.01 seconds in the final at the New Clark City Stadium in Tarlac. Knott, who also set the new local standard, broke the old record earlier during the heats with 23.07 seconds only to reset it once again hours later. Khawpeag’s old mark was 23.30 seconds. She surpassed Fil-Canadian teammate Zion Corrales Nelson (23.32 seconds), who broke “Asia’s fastest woman” Lydia De Vega-Mercado’s local record (23.35 seconds) earlier this year in a US NCAA meet. Tokyo Olympics-bound EJ Obiena erased 5.35m 2017 mark of Thai Porranot Purahong by clearing 5.45m to write a new gold standard in men’s pole vault.  Their feat added more glitter to Team Philippines’ total haul of 89 gold medals with 67 silver and 65 bronze. Indonesia is running second with 50-49-58 gold-silver-bronze followed by Vietnam (45-50-64). Poomsae at the Ninoy Aquino stadium accounted for four mints courtesy of Rodolfo Reyes (men’s recognized individual), Jeordan Dominguez (men’s freestyle), Jocel Lyn Ninobla (women’s recognized individual) while Reyes teamed up with Dustin Mella and Raphael Mella to rule the men’s recognized team event. Asian Games champion Margielyn Didal won her second gold medal in the meet with her conquest in women’s skateboarding street, Daniela Reggie Dela Pisa contributed a mint in rhythmic gymnastics (hoop) while Chezka Centeno ruled the 10-ball pool single. Rowers Cris Nievarez (men’s lightweight single scull), Hermie Macaranas (men’s singles 200m) and the pair Melcah Jen Caballero and Joanie Delgaco (women’s lightweight double sculls) added golds as well as the sailing tandem of Lester Tayong and Emerson Villena (men’s international 470). The duo of Francis Alcantara and Jeson Patrombon ruled men’s tennis doubles, Noelle Manalac was victorious in women’s soft tennis singles, Junna Tsukii won the -50kg kumite in karatedo while the PHI women’s fencing team reigned supreme in epee.      .....»»
