Ted Cruz challenges Mark Cuban in heated Twitter argument

Texas Senator Ted Cruz and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban aren't seeing eye to eye, and it's not because of the Houston-Dallas rivalry.

Cruz challenged Cuban to talk about China during a heated Twitter argument yesterday.

The beef started when Cuban responded to a tweet from talk radio host Mark Davis in which he declared he was excited for the NBA to return to action but would be “OUT” the minute a player kneels during the national anthem.

“Bye,” Cuban responded to the tweet, but Cruz took notice and didn’t appreciate the snarky response that seemed to imply the Mavericks don't mind if players protest during the national anthem by taking a knee.

"Really??!? NBA is telling everyone who stands for the flag, who honors our cops and our veterans, to ‘piss off?’ In Texas, no less? Good luck with that,” Cruz wrote.

The Mavericks owner fired back, “Have some balls for once @tedcruz. It's my tweet.”

And that's where it went downhill.
