(CNBC) Basketball Hall of Fame player Shaquille ONeal lent his support to Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey who ignited an international clash with China earlier this month when he tweeted support for anti-government protests in Hong Kong. ONeal who didnt say whether he agreed with Morey said he was right to speak out. Daryl Morey was right. Whenever you see something wrong going on anywhere in the world you should have the right to say Thats not right. And thats what he did. But again sometimes in business you have to tiptoe around things" ONeal a former NBA center said Tuesday night. They understand our values we understand their values. And here we have the right to speak especially with social media.
