Mark Cuban went after conservative radio host Mark Davis on Twitter.
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is many things, but timid is certainly not one of them. If anyone takes a shot at his players, organization or personal character, he will unload with everything he has in his Twitter arsenal.
After conservative radio host Mark Davis said that he wouldn’t watch the Mavericks in the NBA’s Orlando restart if a player chose to protest during the national anthem by kneeling, Cuban was enraged, claiming that the “national anthem police in this country are out of control.”
Mark Cuban followed up his attacks on Davis by going after Ted Cruz.
Cuban, owner of a Luka Doncic-led Mavericks team looking to secure a playoff spot with a 40-27 record prior to the restart, drew the attention of Ted Cruz, who once again failed to understand that these protests are meant to draw attention to police brutality and systemic racism, not to disrespect the flag or the military.
Cruz falsely claimed that Cuban was telling everyone who did stand during the anthem to “piss off.” Cuban asked for Cruz to actually engage in debate with him for once, whereupon Cruz accused Cuban of being sympathetic to human rights violations in China.
Cuban responded by claiming he supports the removal of all Chinese IPOs on the American stock exchange before asking why Cruz doesn’t have enough backbone to go against the whims of Donald Trump. Cruz messed with the bull, and he got the horns in the form of Cuban’s 280-character barbs.
Be it business, basketball, or politics, Cuban is going to tell you exactly what is on his mind. Cruz and Davis both made the unfortunate mistake of attacking Cuban without realizing that he always keeps the receipts and will never back down from the opportunity to butt heads with someone.
