Mark Cuban is just another super rich oligarch (Rich Bitch) who has made his billions from the sucker Masses whom he considers Assess! These so called gifted rich people who I have no animosity one way or the other, only when they disregard the FLAG OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. We MASSES WHO ARE ASSES must start to boycott these elitists who just want to change America into the TWO CLASS CULTURE which is the have’s and the have’s nots! Wise up American’s and take back your COUNTRY by standing against what has made these people rich, that being US, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURBUS UNIUM (OUT OR MANY ONE) GOD BLESS AMERICA AGAIN BEFORE WE TURN INTO A TOTAL SOCIALIST COUNTRY!!

Mark Cuban has always been JEALOUS of Donald J Trump. He has, like the NBA sold out to China. If he was so concerned why doesn’t he fight for the Muslims in Retraining camps or Concentration camps who make the NIKE and other NBA products at slave wages. Mark Cuban NEEDS the attention, and this is the only way he gets it.

THEY SHOULD HAVE A RULE THAT HIS TEAM CANNOT BE TALLER THAN FIVE FEET. NO SSB. NO SHARK TANK.

HOW CAN MARK CUBAN BANN THE SSB AT HIS BBALL GAMES. I JUST LEFT FIX NEWS AND NOW I MUST DROP SHARK TANK. I ALREADY SAID GOODBYE TO CHICOM BASKETBALL. I WONT BE BACK UNTIL THE TALLEST PLAYER IS FIVE FOOT. THE COMMUNISTS HAVE TURNED SPORTS ONCE A GREAT UNITER INTO A VESSEL OF DIVISION. SPONSORS THREATEN THE LIVLIHOOD OF AMERICANS. IT GOES BACK TO WHEN WE ALLOWED THE COMMUNISTS TO KILL THE ORANGE JUICE JOB OF ONE MOTHER, ANITA BRYANT. SHE STOOD UP FOR HER CHILDREN. . WE DID NOTHING AND NOW WE ARE ON THE RUN.

Well, with the NBA playing footsie with China, this really isn’t much of a surprise. Going international, they can’t play favorites can they? But, they forget who it is that buys tickets, who pays for the stadium and who supports sponsors, so let’s see how the commies support them!

Sports and entertainment figures have gone to far! We are blessed to have freedom of speech in this country and I respect each ones right to express their opinions.
Using that position in life to express those opinions is wrong! I turn on a game to watch a game! Not to hear what some over paid athlete thinks of this country !
Sell shoes and clothes! Leave politics to the ones we pay to lie to us!
The national anthem is played to honor this country that has made it possible for these guys to make millions for dribbling a ball!
How many brave men and women gave their lives so Mark Cuban can disrespect them!
ALL LIVES MATTER!!!

Very basically – Who CARES!!! Let them play ball in the arena, in a park or in the street. Nobody is going to the games, in any great numbers anyway!!! I quit watching them, forever, when they were allowed to disrespect American values by kneeling, while the National Anthem was being played. Now, they can play ball or not play ball. Let Cuban find ways to get others to watch his team.
