The Dallas Mavericks have stopped playing the national anthem before home games this season and will continue to do so.
The story was broken by Tim Cato of The Atlantic on Monday evening. By not playing the national anthem this is “the first instance we know of a pro sports team striking the U.S. anthem from the pre-game.”
When reached by Cato, Cuban confirmed he was the one who decided to pull the plug on the anthem.
“None of 13 preseason and regular-season games played at the American Airlines Center this season have featured the anthem before the game, including Monday’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, the first played this season with a limited amount of fans in attendance,” Cato reported Monday. “The Mavericks did not publicize the anthem’s removal, and The Athletic was the first media organization to reach out about the change after noticing its absence on Monday. Multiple team employees described only noticing the anthem’s removal on their own, as it was also not announced or explained internally.”
Megyn Kelly made a great suggestion for those who are attending the Dallas Mavericks game and want to express their patriotism.
Fans who still choose to attend should put their hands on their hearts and just start singing it. Now that would be a moment. https://t.co/TY6Ccl6zIs
