Mark Cuban said he believes Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green "owes the NBA an apology" for criticizing the usage of the term "owner" in sports.

Green made the statement last week as part of an Instagram post reacting to Houston Texans owner Bob McNair's controversial comment that the NFL "can't have inmates running the prison."

"For starters, let's stop using the word owner and maybe use the word Chairman," Green wrote. "To be owned by someone just sets a bad precedent to start. It sets the wrong tone. It gives one the wrong mindset."

Cuban, the Dallas Mavericks owner, said McNair's comment, made during a meeting between NFL owners and players regarding social issues, was "wrong, ridiculous." Cuban said it was up to each individual to decide whether to accept McNair's apology.

However, Cuban said he was also offended by the thinly veiled connotation of Green's comments about owners in professional sports.
