The recent tweet by Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey about supporting the anti-Chinese Hong Kong protests has apparently not only caused a big riff between Communist China and the NBA but has also brought out the ignorance of a few of the league’s most prominent players, including Lakers Forward Lebron James.

Florida Senator Rick Scott (R) posterized James in a tweet, criticizing  the future Hall of Famer for saying Morey was “not educated on the issue” and saying that Morey should watch what he says because of his controversial tweet, “many people could have been harmed, not only physically, emotionally.”

“Clearly, King James is the one who isn’t educated on the situation at hand,” tweeted Scott “It’s sad to see him join the chorus kowtowing to Communist China & putting profits over human rights for #HongKong. I was there 2 weeks ago. They’re fighting for freedom & the autonomy they were promised

Scott has been one of the most critical voices of opposition against the Chinese government.
