Former NBA player Ty Lawson has been banned for life from the CBA for Instagram story posts. Lawson made several comments on the way Chinese women dress after apparently partying in a night club. There were pictures on his Instagram account that showcase him spending time with some women.

His team, the Fujian Sturgeons, gave an official statement for a Chinese media agency where they describe behavior as inappropriate.

“His inappropriate words are inconsistent with the social responsibilities and values abided by our club and have brought serious adverse social impacts to the club and the league. We will not sign him for the new season.”
