(Fox News) Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has changed his stance on players kneeling for the national anthem.
Before the 2017-18 NBA season, Cuban said that he was in full support of peaceful protesting, but he wanted Mavericks players to stand during the anthem. On Thursday, Cuban said that he will be behind his players who decide to kneel when the NBA season resumes in Orlando. He also added that he plans on participating with them.
“If they were taking a knee and they were being respectful, I’d be proud of them,” he said on ESPN’s “Outside the Lines.” “Hopefully I’d join them, because I think we’ve learned a lot since 2017. I think we’ve evolved as a country.
