— Daryl MorΞy 🗽🏀 (@dmorey) June 3, 2021This is not the first time Morey's tweets have gotten him into trouble.The former general manager of the Houston Rockets, Morey was fined $50,000 for violating the anti-tampering rule in December after making reference to then-Rockets star James Harden before he was traded to the Brooklyn Nets.
He also stirred up controversy in October 2019 when his tweet about pro-democracy protestors in Hong Kong drew rebuke from the Chinese Basketball Association. That led multiple Chinese companies to suspend business with the NBA over Morey's comment as well as the league's support for Morey's right to freedom of expression.
