Ty Lawson has reportedly been “banned for life” by the Chinese Basketball Association over content he posted on his Instagram page about Asian women.
His team, the Fujian Sturgeons, released a statement on Saturday confirming they are severing ties with the former NBA guard due to “inappropriate comments” he posted on social media.
So, about those posts…
Both were on his IG story. The first showed an Asian woman dropping it like it’s hot in his lap and the caption read, “Yolo I guess lol.”
The second post was simply a statement that read:
Chinese woman Got cakes on the low…. might switch up my stance soon lol

According to their statement, Fujian Sturgeons said Lawson’s inappropriate comments on September 18 were a violation of the team’s “social responsibilities and core values” policy.
They also added that he would not be signed to a new deal in the future.
