Mark Cuban may want to huddle up with Josh Howard at some point and explain the implications of talking on camera in the YouTube generation. The scene is the Allen Iverson Celebrity Summer Classic flag football game this past July, featuring all of your favorite celebrities; DeAngelo Hall, Larry Johnson, Nate Burleson, Marques Hagans, Nelly, MoNique, and a host of others. Someone's shooting a homemade video during the National Anthem, and the Mavericks' Howard shows up at about the 1:43 mark and gives his views on the song, and politics in general. Video following the jump. From You Been Blinded:
"The Star Spangled Banner's going on right now and I don't celebrate that shit. I'm black."
Then Howard says something else about Barack Obama that I can't quite make out, and the camera mercifully pans away, leaving us to wonder, um, couldn't you have just said 'Hi, mom?'
