Colin Kaepernick is now feeling the effects of his highly publicized National Anthem protest as he is now out of a job and widely considered to be blackballed out of the league forever.

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, who has been an outspoken supporter of Kaepernick, believes the free-agent QB's actions would have been accepted in the National Basketball Association.

"The NBA is such a global game", Cuban was quoted as telling the Post in in an email, "I think our players' exposure to different political systems among their teammates may help them appreciate our country even more and encourage their participation". "I'd like to think we encourage our players to exercise their constitutional rights".

Colin Kaepernick's decision to kneel during "The Star-Spangled Banner" last season might have cost him his future in the NFL, but one team owner from another sport believes the controversial quarterback's protest would be embraced in his league.
