Trump Attacks LeBron James And "Dumb" Don Lemon

To examine the intersection of politics and sports, Showtime has ordered a three-part documentary series, "Shut Up and Dribble", which lists James as an executive producer.

The title is a reference to a comment made earlier this year by Fox News host Laura Ingraham, who responded to political statements from James by telling him to "shut up and dribble". The controversy serves as a prologue to the series as it chronicles the modern history of the National Basketball Association and its players, starting with the 1976 merger of the freewheeling ABA and the more conventional National Basketball Association of today.

James has another show, "The Shop", set to debut August 28 on HBO, in which he leads conversation and debate among his guests in barbershops around the country.

"If being a star athlete is inherently a political experience, "Shut Up and Dribble" tells that complex and dramatic story from the past to the present and from the inside out", Nevins said via Variety. CNN noted that although the interview originally aired Monday, it had re-aired Friday night shortly before Trump's tweet.

Back in February, LeBron James gave an interview to ESPN's Cari Champion in which he discussed race, politics, being a public figure and his personal criticisms of President Trump. He made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do.

"It looks like LeBron James is working to do good things on behalf of our next generation and just as she always has, the First Lady encourages everyone to have an open dialogue about issues facing children today", the First Lady said through a spokeswoman.
