NBA Commissioner Adam Silver is affirming the league will not censor players or front-office personnel, saying “freedom of expression” is paramount for the league, which has been criticized for its response to an employee’s tweet about pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong.

“The long-held values of the NBA are to support the freedom of expression and certainly freedom of expression by members of the NBA community,” Silver says, speaking at a news conference near Tokyo on Tuesday.
