From the linked CNBC piece. So far it seems like the NBA is standing up for their players where Blizzard isn’t.

This is deeply depressing but not shocking. China is a huge market for blizzard games and activision was never going to risk that. Guess this is maybe what makes me stop playing wow.

Already stopped playing Blizzard titles after Heroes of the Storm was dumped and it looks like I have an even better reason to never touch a product by them again.
