The “Ingraham Angle” host also said that James should “keep the political commentary to yourself.” Ingraham’s words are now coming back to haunt her, with the announcement that James is producing a new Showtime docu-series that looks at “the changing role of athletes in our fraught cultural and political environment, through the lens of the NBA.”
The program’s title? “Shut Up And Dribble.”
The news, which was released after Trump used Twitter to attack both James and CNN anchor Don Lemon on Friday, excited fans on the social media platform:
Laura Ingraham told LeBron James to “Shut up and Dribble”.
Now LeBron is producing a show for Showtime, while she has lost all her advertisers except for the guy who sells pillows. I love it.

They really told Lebron “Shut up and Dribble” and he responded with “Thanks for the Docuseries idea.” I love our King @KingJames

God-level trolling: LeBron James is naming his series about sports and politics Shut Up and Dribble after intellectual-in-her-own-mind Laura Ingraham’s attempt to put him down.

Lebron James is the greatest athlete of all time. On and off the court.. He turns negativity directly into positivity. He turns hate into motivation. More people need to be like the King. Excited for “shut up and dribble” produced by him.

“Shut up And Dribble” my be the most Jordan-esque thing Lebron has ever done. Jordan used critics as fuel and then destroyed them w his talent.
