Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban says, the national anthem won’t be played at Mavs games moving forward, according to The Athletic.

Cuban said the move was “not announced or explained internally.”

While the league rulebook states, “players, coaches and trainers must stand and line up in a dignified posture along the foul lines during the playing of the American and/or Canadian national anthems”; under “unique circumstances” that rule can be avoided. In the Mavs’ case, Cuban is exploiting the language in the second half of the rule for this season which states, “under the unique circumstances of this season, teams are permitted to run their pregame operations as they see fit.”
