“Somebody could say given the system of government in China you, the NBA, should make a decision not to operate there. I would only say that at the end of the day, I think those are decisions for our government in terms of where American business should operate,” NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said Tuesday on CNN.

“I continue to believe that the people-to-people exchanges we’re seeing by playing in China are positive, and it’s helping —
