The Rockets were in China on Tuesday to play the New Orleans Pelicans in a preseason tradition known as the NBA’s Global Games. It’s nice little bit of international marketing, making sure potential fans in China can get an up-close and personal look at the NBA players they normally view from across the world, as a way of deepening the relationship with fans. When you attempt to bridge a culture gap, though, there are risks involved — and Rockets training camp invitee Bobby Brown walked right into one.

Brown was part of a Rockets team visit to the Great Wall of China before the game, and he scrawled his name and uniform number in chalk on the wall, posting a picture of it on his Weibo account (Weibo is the Chinese equivalent of Twitter, which is banned in the country).
