China to Prohibit the Streaming of NBA Games Once the Season Resumes

The NBA continues to take financial hits from China.

According to a statement from China’s CCTV on Tuesday, the country has no intention to resume airing league games once the season resumes. Relationships between China and the league have remained shaky throughout the season following Houston General manager Daryl Morey’s tweet of support for Hong Kong last fall.

In a concerted effort to improve relations, the NBA named Michael Ma as the league’s new CEO of NBA China on Monday. Ma is the son of Ma Guoli, who is highly regarded as the father of CCTV sports. The speculations upon Ma’s hiring were that NBA will try to mend its relationship with China over the coming months.

Commissioner Adam Silver stated back in February that the league has lost over $300 million in revenue due to the China controversy.
