‘The King of Hypocrisy’

I wrote today about the hypocrisy of the NBA–Nike industrial complex:

Nike’s latest TV ad is another slick paean to individual empowerment and the ability to prevail despite the naysayers.

Centered around Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant, the commercial features various people doubting that Morant can keep up his stellar play, to which someone always cheekily replies, “Says who?”

Yes, Nike believes anything is possible — so long as it doesn’t involve doing anything to cross one of the world’s most hideously repressive regimes.
