Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban had a harsh message for the "national anthem police" on Sunday evening.

Cuban responded to a message from a local radio host, who claims he will stop watching the Mavericks the moment a player kneels for the anthem.

"I am so ready to be be in on this year's Mavericks home stretch: so much promise, so much personality. But the minute one player kneels during the anthem, I am OUT," Mark Davis tweeted. 

Cuban did not hesitate to respond.

"Bye," he wrote back.

Cuban then posted a longer tweet about the "national anthem police" and how they are "out of control" in this country. "The National Anthem Police in this country are out of control. If you want to complain, complain to your boss and ask why they don't play the National Anthem every day before you start work," he tweeted.

It's unclear if any NBA players will kneel for the national anthem during the games in Orlando, but it will not be surprising if they do.

The 2019-20 NBA regular season is set to resume from Disney World in Orlando, Florida next week.

The Mavericks are one of the 22 teams playing in the bubble. Dallas is currently the No. 7 seed in the Western Conference.
