LeBron James will be the executive producer of a documentary series titled Shut Up and Dribble.
The show was announced on Monday by Showtime and its title is a not-so-veiled dig at comments made by Fox News host Laura Ingraham in February.
In response to a video in which James and Kevin Durant accused U.S. President Donald Trump of “not caring about the people,” the Fox News pundit told the pair to “Shut up and dribble,” urging them to steer clear of politics.
“This is what happens when you attempt to leave high school a year early to join the NBA,” she said.
“Oh, and LeBron and Kevin? You’re great players but no one voted for you. Millions elected Trump to be their coach. So keep the political commentary to yourself or, as someone once said: Shut up and dribble.”
