A small group of protesters demonstrated outside Shenzhen's Universiade Center on Saturday during an NBA China Games match between Los Angeles Lakers and Brooklyn Nets. They urged fans to keep silent at the arena over the league's comments on Hong Kong.
Footage shows protesters holding a Chinese flag and shouting «silent watching» at fans walking into the centre.
«I hope the Chinese fans in... Еще Shenzhen can show that we are able to send the NBA out of China with indifference and calmness,» said one protester.
Last weekend Houston Rockets manager Daryl Morey tweeted in support of Hong Kong protesters' 'fight for freedom' angering the Chinese government and public.
