The NBA has reinstated their policy that all NBA teams are expected to play the national anthem prior to games being played.
NBA spokesman, Mike Bass said in a statement, “With NBA teams now in the process of welcoming fans back into their arenas, all teams will play the national anthem in keeping with longstanding league policy.”
This statement is made in direct response after Mark Cuban’s team, the Dallas Mavericks decided to no longer play the national anthem prior to games.
It has yet to be released whether or not the NBA will penalize Cuban and his team for not playing the “Star-Spangled Banner.”
