We live in a time of mass Wokeness, especially within professional sports. Many Conservatives have stopped watching the NBA and NFL because of how much progressive politics have infiltrated every aspect of those leagues, fully embracing Black Lives Matter and many other Social Justice issues.
The Woke Olympics have taken things to a whole new level, with the NFL playing the "Black National Anthem." Now, the NBA's Dallas Mavericks have ceased playing the National Anthem before their basketball games.
ESPN reported on this story, explaining:
The Dallas Mavericks have stopped playing the national anthem before home games at the direction of owner Mark Cuban, he confirmed to ESPN on Tuesday.The Mavericks do not plan to resume the tradition to play the national anthem before games in the future.Cuban, who declined further comment, made the decision after consulting with NBA commissioner Adam Silver. The Mavericks did not announce the change in policy, but the national anthem has not been played before any of their 13 preseason and regular-season games at the American Airlines Center this season.
It's no surprise that America-loving Conservatives are turning their back on professional sports, now that these teams are turning their backs on America.
