After TV commentator Laura Ingraham attacked LeBron James by telling him that he should not be talking about politics, the sports star decided to shoot back on February 17. It is safe to say that he was not at all happy to hear the Fox star advising him to ‘just shut up and dribble.’
The woman’s comment followed LeBron’s criticism of Donald Trump while on an ESPN podcast.
The statement that got the Fox commentator to slam LeBron was about the current president not being the best person to rule the country as well as the fact that he said racist things.
‘The number one job in America is someone who does not understand the people and really doesn’t give a f**k about the people.’
Laura’s response to this was: ‘This is what happens when you leave high school a year early to join the NBA, it is always unwise to seek political advice from someone who gets paid $100 million per year to bounce a ball.
When asked about Laura’s shade, the man replied: ‘I’ll not just shut up and dribble. So, thank you, whatever her name is.
‘I get to sit up here and talk about what is really important and how I can help change kids. It lets me know that everything I have been saying’s correct for her to have that type of reaction. But we’ll definitely not shut up and dribble. I’ll definitely not do that.’
‘I mean way too much to society, I mean too much to youth, I mean too much to many kids that feel like they do not have a way out and need somebody to help lead them out of the situation they are in.’
