Till now no one has heard about the Mavericks game protests against the national anthem but this time the thing is true that Mavericks no longer will be playing the national anthem or the “The Star-Spangled Banner” song before the starting of the game.
The step was taken by Mark Cuban in an interview and told the athletes that no one will be playing the national anthem before the start of the game. The move of the game went unnoticed by the main people in the combined preseason and regular-season games at American Airlines Center because the Mavericks are so capable that they didn’t tell anything about this to the media and also not shown anything to the organization also. Monday was the first when the mavericks allowed a limited no. of persons to watch the game as the national anthem was not played before the start of the game.
The Kuban become vocal for all the fans who were kneeling about the national anthem before the game and the practice of the national anthem was adopted by Colin Kaepernick in the year 2016 and the word became the lightning rod for the partisan political debate.
The most outspoken person of the mavericks Mark Cuban told ESPN that If they were taking a knee, and they were being respectful, I’d be proud of them” and that he hoped he would “join them.” Also, Mark tweeted about the same on social media by posting the lines that say, “The National Anthem Police,” that if critics of the nonviolent protest of systemic racism in the United States took issue then they could “complain to your boss and ask why they don’t play the National Anthem every day before you start work.”
Moreover, the NBA rules state that it is necessary for the players to follow the rules of the NBA, and the rules state that the players had to stand in the national anthem but now after all this issue by the Mark NBA said that they may need to overlook the rules and regulations and there might be some changes in the rules of the NBA.
He also said last that “I recognize that this is a very emotional issue on both sides of the equation in America right now,” Silver said during a press conference in December, “and I think it calls for real engagement rather than rule enforcement.”
That’s all was the article about the national anthem in the mavericks will not be playing in the further matches from the further matches.
