Bryant’s absence enrages Chinese basketball fans

Around 1,000 mostly young fans tossed water bottles and shouted slurs when it was announced Bryant, who was in Beijing to promote a new line of gear for adidas, would not appear, witnesses said.
adidas, in an official statement after the incident, said Bryant’s appearance was cancelled “due to the advice from the local security bureau.”
