The NBA's Controversial China Partnership
About This Event
Having carefully fostered a close relationship with China and nurtured a basketball consumer craze across its borders, the National Basketball Association's China operations are worth over $5 billion.

Heightened criticism from owners, players, and fans combined with a series of public relations blunders over the social responsibilities of corporations have put the league on the defensive. CNBC's Jabari Young and Marc Edelman, Sports Ethics Director at CUNY's Baruch College, and Zivvy Media's Elise Labott join the Council's YP Nexus to discuss.
