Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has had enough of people criticizing his support of players kneeling during the national anthem, and he let everyone know it on Monday.
Cuban responded to a tweet from Mark Davis, a Dallas-based conservative talk show host, that stated he would no longer be a fan of the Mavericks if any player decided to kneel during the national anthem.
The National Anthem Police in this country are out of control. If you want to complain, complain to your boss and ask why they don't play the National Anthem every day before you start work. https://t.co/NUwv7asO44— Mark Cuban (@mcuban) July 20, 2020
Following that tweet from Cuban, the Mavs owner and Texans Sen. Ted Cruz then got into a heated argument on social media.

NBA is telling everyone who stands for the flag, who honors our cops and our veterans, to “piss off”? In Texas, no less?
Good luck with that. pic.twitter.com/AVWLMZIqu0
I can say Black Lives Matter. I can say there is systemic racism in this country. I can say there is a Pandemic that you have done little to end. I can say I care about this country first and last and.. https://t.co/URFs41XloY— Mark Cuban (@mcuban) July 20, 2020
Cuban has actively supported the Black Lives Matter movement and has made it known that he'll support any Mavericks player who decides to kneel during the national anthem in Orlando and beyond.
