Mark Cuban: 'National anthem police in this country are out of control'

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.

Following that tweet from Cuban, the Mavs owner and Texans Sen. Ted Cruz then got into a heated argument on social media.

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.
