No More National Anthem At Mavericks Home Games


The Dallas Mavericks have opted to stop playing the national anthem before home games this season. Owner Mark Cuban confirmed the decision Tuesday night but didn't comment further. A league spokesman said, "Under the unique circumstances of this season, teams are permitted to run their pregame operations as they see fit." An absent anthem isn't a first in Mavs history. "God Bless America" was played before their games instead of the "Star-Spangled Banner" for the franchise's first 16 seasons.
