    Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban declared that the "National Anthem Police in this country are out of control," leading to a tense exchange on Twitter with Senator Ted Cruz, a Republican who represents Texas. Cuban initially tweeted "Bye" on Sunday evening in response to a tweet from Mark Davis in which the Dallas-based conservative talk show host expressed enthusiasm about the Mavs but added he would no longer be a fan "the minute one player kneels for the anthem," suggesting Cuban could help guide the Mavs and NBA "to do whatever gesture they wish without insulting the nation."
  • Mark Cuban on if Mavericks kneel during national anthem: ‘Hopefully, I’d join them’

    Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said kneeling during the national anthem wouldn’t have kept Colin Kaepernick off an NBA roster. That was a questionable claim that nobody tested. No NBA players emulated Kaepernick’s controversial demonstration (which protested racism, particularly through police brutality). But Cuban is now even more directly supporting players – particularly on Dallas – if they kneel during the anthem. Cuban, via ESPN: “If they were taking a knee and they were being respectful, I’d be proud of them. Hopefully I’d join them,” Cuban said. NBA rules state that players and coaches must stand for the national anthem, but...

    Dallas Mavericks Owner and billionaire investor Mark Cuban pushed back Wednesday on Tesla CEO Elon Musk for reportedly calling states' coronavirus shelter-in-place orders “fascist.” “Anything that negatively impacts Tesla, Elon hates, period, end of story,” Cuban said on “Fox News @ Night” on Wednesday. “I don’t think he has other people’s interests at heart. I mean, I don’t really know him at all, but that’s just my take.” During an earnings call on Wednesday, The Verge reported that Musk said, “The expansion of shelter-in-place, or as we call it, forcibly imprisoning people in their homes, against all their constitutional rights,...

    Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban believes that despite the negative impact the coronavirus outbreak has had on the U.S., it will result in ‘world-changing’ innovation – and possibly his own run at the presidency. [cut] “People aren’t going to just venture outside. They're not going to go to large gatherings. They're not going to feel confident right off the bat. There’s going to be a lot of trepidation. And that concern is going to lead to people holding back on spending money.” [cut] “When the scientists say it’s safe for my employees to come back to work, that’s when I’ll...

    Mark Cuban is flirting with a presidential bid in a post-coronavirus “America 2.0,” he revealed. In an interview with Axios, the billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks discussed his view on the future of America following the coronavirus pandemic. Cuban spoke repeatedly of the “unique opportunity” that Americans face. When asked if that opportunity might include a presidential bid, Cuban was coy, but didn’t rule out the possibility. “If this would’ve been a month ago, I would have said absolutely not. But obviously things are crazy, things are changing. So I’ll keep an open mind. But I seriously doubt it.”

    Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has prided himself as the man who knows all about politics and international relations, but even Cuban is suddenly silent where it concerns China. Any time a microphone and TV camera are present, Cuban is ready to hold court and sally forth into political waters to make pronouncements about nearly everything. But on China, Cuban has suddenly lost his voice. Cuban has been mysteriously silent during this flap over the NBA’s slavish support of the oppressive Chinese government. Indeed, even when quizzed directly on the topic by the Washington Times, Cuban would not offer one...

    Erica Thomas is a member of the Georgia House of Representatives. Clearly, that's not where she wants her political career to end, however. Yesterday, she suddenly claimed on Twitter that a white guy had harassed her at a grocery store, and had even told her to "go back where you came from!" Obviously, this was meant to prove that President Trump's statements about The Squad are contagious. However, the accused man didn't take this lying down. When confronted by Rep. Thomas on camera he didn't take a step back and insisted that she wasn't telling the truth about their confrontation...

    Billionaire Mark Cuban said Tuesday that there is "nobody right now" among the pool of Democratic presidential candidate hopefuls that could beat President Donald Trump in the 2020 election. And he hasn't ruled out all possibilities of running for president in 2020, although he admitted it would take the "perfect storm" to get him to throw his hat in the ring. "We'll see what happens," Cuban told Scott Wapner in a phone interview on CNBC's "Fast Money Halftime Report." "Look, I've said it many times, it would take the perfect storm for me to do it."

Police in Lakewood, Colorado said they arrested 23-year-old Rogel Lazaro Aguilera-Mederos after he lost control of his tractor-trailer truck during the evening rush hour on April 25 and caused a crash on Interstate 70 that involved at least 28 vehicles.

    MONTERREY, Mexico (Reuters) – Mexican gunmen have kidnapped a U.S. security consultant who negotiated the release of dozens of kidnap victims in Latin America. Gunmen abducted Felix Batista outside a restaurant last Wednesday in the relatively safe northern industrial city of Saltillo in Coahuila state, Mexican authorities and his employer, security consultancy ASI Global, said on Monday. Batista, a Miami-based Cuban American credited with negotiating the release of victims abducted by Colombian rebels, was snatched after he stepped outside the restaurant, answering a call on his cellular phone, Mexican media said. The U.S. embassy in Mexico City said it was...

    Mark Cuban made a mistake Monday afternoon. A TMZ camera found him outside a restaurant in California, and the Mavs owner actually stopped and talked to the paparazzo. Quickly, Cuban was talking about the Red Hen restaurant in Virginia and its decision to deny service to White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Although he likely didn't know it at the time, Cuban was about to stir up Trump Twitter, a group that's never met a stupid fight it didn't like. Here's what Cuban said with regard to the restaurant. “It’s a good question. You can make an argument on...

    In May 2011, a woman contacted the Portland Police Bureau to make an allegation against Mark Cuban, the billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks basketball team and one of the most visible figures in entertainment and sports. Her complaint? That Cuban had sexually assaulted her late one night at an Old Town nightclub. The woman told police she encountered Cuban in late April at the Barrel Room, at 105 NW 3rd Ave., and asked him to pose with her for a photograph. While they smiled for the camera, she claimed, he thrust his hand down the back of her jeans...

    Multi-billionaire tech titan and star of CNBC's "Shark Tank" Mark Cuban says that most people are underestimating the potential of artificial intelligence to change the world we live and work in. He's especially intimidated by the pace at which new technology advances: "It scares the s--- out of me," says Cuban, speaking to Ozy Fest conference attendees in New York City. "However much change you saw over the last 10 years with the iPhone, over the last 20 years with the Internet, over the last 30 years with PC's, etc., that is nothing. Nothing!" Cuban says.

    Three men carrying false identification were denied access to the federal courthouse in downtown Miami Thursday. They attempted to enter at multiple vehicle check-points until security guards recognized one of the men and immediately contacted deputies from the U.S. Marshals Service. The men used badges that resembled those from three different federal agencies, including a U.S. Marshal badge, but within seconds of examining the badges, security guards knew they were fraudulent. Once the men were detained, officers searched their vehicle and discovered other fraudulent law enforcement clothing. One man was arrested and could face charges by the U.S. Attorney’s Office,...
