Houston Rockets guard Bobby Brown begged Chinese citizens for forgiveness on Tuesday after receiving severe backlash for signing his name and number on the Great Wall of China.

As a part of the NBA's Global Games program, the Rockets are in China playing a series of exhibitions vs. the New Orleans Pelicans in different cities. In between contests, the Rockets visited the Great Wall — and on his Weibo microblog, Brown published his graffiti with the caption: “Had a blast at the Great Wall of China today.”
