Mark Cuban, owner of NBA team Dallas Mavericks, has stated they will no longer play the national anthem before home games and he was called an "ego-maniac addicted to attention" for making that decision.

WATCH Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe discuss Mark Cuban's decision to stop playing the national anthem on Undisputed:

Under the current situation, the NBA suggests that each team run their pregame activity the way they chose, as stated on ABC27. It was specifically Tim Frank, NBA spokesman, who reported that “under the unique circumstances of this season, teams are permitted to run their pregame operations as they see fit.”

ABC27 also suggests that Mark Cuban did not elaborate on his decision, and also said "nobody had noticed." Cuban has been one of the leagues largest critics against people who shame players for taking a knee during the Pledge of Allegiance or The Star-Spangled Banner.

Cuban often takes criticism for the way he supports the player protests.

Back in 2017 Cuban spoke up about President Donald Trump, the national anthem, and his views on the protests.

One of his main points was that if the national anthem was so important, then American people would get in their seats and not use that time to "get a hot dog."
