Laura Ingraham's Comments on LeBron James Draw Criticism From Dwyane Wade

She might actually enjoy being around us, and might actually feel inspired by being around not just me or LeBron but guys in our position, anybody of another color who has risen up and done something positive in life. They were accompanied by Cari Champion of ESPN, and did it as a collaboration between Uber and Uninterrupted. But instead of letting them win, he chose to paint over the gate and "make it taller".

A Fox News host has come under fire from at least three professional athletes for telling USA basketball players LeBron James and Kevin Durant to "shut up and dribble" instead of engaging in politics. In a video that was shot a month before, they took aim at president Donald Trump for not caring about the people or trying to unite them.

Ingraham's comments quickly drew plenty of response from the sports world, with Dwyane Wade and Chris Long among the athletes calling her out. It might only be a matter of time before he responds to her directly. He and Durant additionally both expressed dismay over what they perceive as Trump's racism, with James saying Trump's comments are no longer a surprise, which is "laughable - and it's scary".

"Keep the political commentary to yourself".

James is no stranger to voicing his opinions, having campaigned for Hillary Clinton, calling Trump a "bum" on Twitter, and speaking out against Trump's backlash on National Football League players taking a knee. "I'm going to continue to do what I have to do to play this game that I love to play, but this is bigger than me playing the game of basketball".

The man that countless youngsters hail as a sports hero spewed the obviously inaccurate and R-rated insult against the sitting president of the United States in a video filmed in OH in January and released Thursday by Uninterrupted, a site he co-founded, as The New York Post reported.

Ingraham said James should leave the political discussions for someone who actually graduated high school. "Unfortunately, a lot of kids, some adults, take these ignorant comments seriously". "It's always unwise to seek political advice from someone who gets paid $100 million a year to bounce a ball".

Ingraham released a statement Saturday defending her comments.
