1/ I did not intend my tweet to cause any offense to Rockets fans and friendso
f mine in China. I was merely voicing one thought, based on one interpretation
, of one complicated event. I have had a lot of opportunity since that tweet t
o hear and consider other perspectives.
2/ I have always appreciated the significant support our Chinese fans and spon
sors have provided and I would hope that those who are upset will know that of
fending or misunderstanding them was not my intention. My tweets are my own a
nd in no way represent the Rockets or the NBA.
