President Donald Trump used the bully pulpit of his office to, well, bully " he fired shots at the NFL over its concussion protocols and players kneeling during the national anthem. Then he rescinded his invite to the White House to the Warriors after Stephen Curry said he would vote not to go.

Sports stars fired back. LeBron James called Trump a bum, Chris Paul asked if he didnt have better things to worry about, and the Warriors said as a team they would use their time in Washington this season to celebrate equality, diversity and inclusion " the values that we embrace as an organization. Even supporters of the President, such as Patriots owner Robert Craft, rebuked the president for his comments.

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban told NBC News in an exclusive interview for Meet the Press Trump has to be a big enough man to handle people standing up to him.

If the presidents going to say something condemning a person, an industry, a sport, then hes got to be able to take the blowback thats going to come back, Cuban told NBC News in an exclusive interview for Meet the Press.

So LeBron [James] and Steph and any athlete, any owner, its an open door now, and so they have every right for the same reasons to be able to say whatevers on their mind, he said. Now well be able to see if he can take it.
