Sen. Ted Cruz hammered NBA star LeBron James over his sucking up to “tyrants and murderers” when he criticized Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey for posting a tweet supporting anti-China protesters in Hong Kong.

TMZ Sports caught up with Cruz and discussed the situation.

“It’s been a shame seeing how the NBA has reacted to this,” Cruz said. “I just came from Hong Kong a couple days ago and it is incredible seeing millions of people standing up for freedom.”

“LeBron James, he’s a hell of a player but it sure seems his comments were more interested in money and making bucks and I get it, Nike’s a big sponsor of his and he makes a whole lot of money, but kissing up to Chinese communists and tyrants and apologizing for murderers, that’s not a good look for the NBA,” Cruz said.

“You look at what Daryl Morey tweeted, it is obviously true, it’s obviously benign,” he said. “But, unfortunately, the NBA makes a whole bunch of money in China.”

Cruz also suggested James educate himself on China’s past human rights abuses and their efforts to stifle religious freedom, before jumping to their defense, FOX News reports.

“We don’t need to embrace censorship and propaganda, and sadly that’s what the Chinese government wants the NBA to do,” he added.

James attempted to clarify his position after his remarks were widely rebuked, saying he was not attempting to comment on the protests, but on Morey’s public stance.

“I do not believe there was any consideration for the consequences and ramifications of the tweet. I’m not discussing the substance. Others can talk about that,” he said.
