Dallas Mavericks players will get the chance to weigh in on the divisive comments made by President Donald Trump and their feelings on the United States. The effort is being encouraged by Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, who said it would offer a clear message to fans on where the players stand. "If they would want to have, as a team, their feelings aired on our JumboTron before a game rather than trying to make a point through a secondary action, whether it's taking knees, joining arms, whatever it may be, let's just say what's on our mind and just be clear to fans what we think," Cuban told CNBC's "Squawk on the Street" on Monday, "and if we can take it from there and start a discussion in our community, then that's a good thing." The Mavericks are one of several teams holding their media day on Monday. Questions about Trump's comments about standing for the national anthem are likely to be pervasive.
