LeBron James To Executive Produce Showtime Docu-Series "Shut Up & Dribble"

LeBron James To Executive Produce Showtime Docu-Series

President Donald Trump insulted National Basketball Association star LeBron James from afar but passed up an opportunity to criticize him on his own turf, sticking to Democrats, the news media and other familiar targets during a campaign rally Saturday night in James' home state of Ohio.

A more cynical interpretation of the events of recent days might be that Trump's relatives and officials, by adopting more mainstream positions on certain issues, are carrying out a political strategy that can complement the President's often wild interventions to please his base.

"I don't know how many times we can say, as a player and as a group, how much we love and support and appreciate the troops, and the opportunities this country allows us", Rodgers said.

From the opening of the I Promise school in his hometown of Akron, Ohio, to this new series, LeBron will obviously never just "shut up and dribble". For the rest of the week, Trump was uncharacteristically silent - until Friday night, when he finally shot back.

The statement came after President Donald Trump on Twitter called black CNN host Don Lemon the "dumbest man on television" who made James "look smart, which isn't easy to do" during a CNN interview.

The Los Angeles Lakers were able to make a huge splash in free agency this offseason when they signed LeBron James to a four-year deal.

Even a spokeswoman for first lady Melania Trump praised James's charity work and mentioned "responsible online behavior" in a statement some imagined was a subtle rebuke to her husband.




However, Mrs Trump's spokeswoman said James was "working to do good things" with a school in his OH hometown. "Just as she always has, the First Lady encourages everyone to have an open dialogue about issues facing children today", she said. "A man who puts kids in classrooms or one who puts kids in cages?" - he saved his full outrage for his CNN show Monday night. Trump tweeted from his vacation at his golf resort in New Jersey.

Ingraham targeted James, then a Cleveland Cavaliers player, for his critical comments about Trump, words she declared to be unintelligible.

Maybe watching him engage in a Twitter feud with Trump isn't the battle we envisioned, but it would certainly entertain the sports world.

Many also drew a comparison between James' new school for at-risk children and the defunct Trump University, a for-profit educational institution, which was shut down following multiple lawsuits. "Keep doing you @KingJames!" Although it's unlikely the Lakers can realistically challenge the champion Golden State Warriors for the thrown in the West as now constructed, the plan is for James to eventually lead the Lakers to at least one championship during his four-year stint in Hollywood.

- I care, why don't you?

A Saturday panel discussion on the Fox News show "Watters' World" got more than a little heated when host Jesse Watters (shown above, center) brought up a recent tweet made by President Donald Trump about National Basketball Association star LeBron James.

On Saturday, Jordan weighed in, telling NBC through a spokesman: "I support LJ. [LeBron James]. He's doing an wonderful job for his community". Screw that! Lebron James has an huge influence, and I like the fact that the President punches back.
