LeBron James has responded to Fox News personality Laura Ingraham telling him to " shut up and dribble ," and threw his own shade at her in the process. "I will not just shut up and dribble ," he said after Saturday's NBA All-Star Game practice in Los Angeles.

LeBron James responded to Fox News Laura Ingraham 's commentary, which has been received as being racially charged by saying that he will "definitely not shut up and dribble ". " We will definitely not shut up and dribble ," James said.

“But when an athlete says something, why is it downplayed or why is it considered not OK? So I always challenge that motion and just continue to push that next generation of not only are we athletes, but we can be other things as well.”

Ingraham on Thursday insulted James’ intelligence and said he and fellow basketball star Kevin Durant should not express their political opinions, comments that drew a strong rebuke from James’ former teammate Dwyane Wade.

Ingraham called recent statements James had made about President Donald Trump “barely intelligible,” in a segment on her Fox News show, “The Ingraham Angle.”

Then, after showing a clip featuring James speaking about the president with Durant and the ESPN host Cari Champion, she asked, “Must they run their mouths like that?”

What is LeBron James' net worth? Breaking down how much Cavs star earns

  What is LeBron James' net worth? Breaking down how much Cavs star earns Let’s take a look at how LeBron James has accumulated his immense wealth and ensured he will be relevant long after he leaves the game. What is LeBron James' NBA salary?At the ripe age of 19, James signed his first NBA contract worth $12.9 million across three seasons. James, who surpassed 30,000 career points this season (good for seventh all-time), is not surprisingly also near the top of the list for the league’s greatest earners.According to Spotrac, James will have earned $233.89 million across 15 NBA seasons, including 2017-18, making him the sixth-ranked NBA earner of all time.

"I will not just shut up and dribble ," James said. "I get to sit up here and talk about what's really important." James spoke publicly after Fox News host Laura Ingraham criticized the three-time NBA champion for his recent comments about social issues.

James made his first comments following Fox News host Laura Ingraham ’s “ shut up and dribble ” comments last week, in which she took James and fellow hoopster Kevin Durant to task for criticizing President Donald Trump.

Wade, in a tweet, said that Ingraham’s remarks underscored the way that racist speech has flourished under Trump.

“They use to try and hide it,” said Wade, a close friend and former teammate of James, referring to Ingraham’s comments. “Now the president has given everyone the courage to live their truths.”

James, Durant and Champion are black, and many commentators noted online that the word “they” in her sentence, as well as her comments about James’ intelligence, came across as racist.

Ingraham, a stalwart ally of Trump, belittled James for leaving high school early to enter the NBA and said that it was unwise to “seek political advice from someone who gets paid a hundred million dollars a year to bounce a ball.”

“You’re great players but no one voted for you,” she concluded, addressing James and Durant. “Millions elected Trump to be their coach. So keep the political commentary to yourself, or as someone once said, shut up and dribble.”

Kevin Durant on Laura Ingraham’s commentary: 'To me, it was racist'

  Kevin Durant on Laura Ingraham’s commentary: 'To me, it was racist' Durant addressed the comments made by the Fox News host who said he and LeBron James should just "shut up and dribble."While social media was still buzzing Friday about Laura Ingraham’s segment on Fox News, where the host told LeBron James and Kevin Durant to “shut up and dribble” rather than share their views about President Trump as they had in a recent joint interview, people across Los Angeles were benefitting from NBA athletes who refused to “stick to sports” and took part in nine charity events during All-Star weekend. Funny how that tired trope doesn’t come up when players are investing their time and money to give back to society.

LeBron James fired back at Fox News host Laura Ingraham who suggested he stay in his lane and leave the politics to the professional pundits. The fireworks started when LeBron and Warriors star Kevin Durant appeared on Cari Champions’s “Rolling With the Champion” segment on ESPN’s

More: Jaylen Brown : Ingraham 's comments about LeBron are 'ridiculous' and 'insulting'. Ingraham , who suggested James should " shut up and dribble " as a result of an Uninterrupted video where he was critical of President Trump, invited James on her show late Friday night.

Ingraham’s comments referred to a clip of James and Durant criticizing the president from James’ video platform, Uninterrupted. James spoke about his experience as an African-American and then, prompted by Champion, repeated his past criticisms of Trump.

Durant then spoke about how he learned life skills from basketball and compared Trump to a “bad coach.” On her show, Ingraham edited the clip to remove substantial parts of both men’s comments.

“If pro athletes and entertainers want to freelance as political pundits, then they should not be surprised when they’re called out for insulting politicians,” Ingraham said in a statement Friday. “There was no racial intent in my remarks — false, defamatory charges of racism are a transparent attempt to immunize entertainment and sports elites from scrutiny and criticism.” She also cited multiple white entertainers whom she had previously criticized for being politically outspoken.

James has been politically outspoken, particularly in regard to Trump. In September, he called the president a “bum” after Trump said he had withdrawn an invitation for the Golden State Warriors to visit the White House.

This is how LeBron James referred to Fox News host and professional bigot Laura Ingraham . The Ann Coulter mimeograph devoted an entire segment to disparaging LeBron James ’s intelligence and telling him to “ shut up and dribble .”

After a racial slur was painted on the front gates of his home in Los Angeles last year, James addressed how he continues to struggle with racism, despite his success.

“No matter how much money you have, no matter how famous you are, no matter how many people admire you, being black in America is — it’s tough,” James said at the time. “And we got a long way to go for us as a society and for us as African-Americans until we feel equal in America.”
