Clip from the upcoming docu-series SHUT UP & DRIBBLE, a three-part series chronicling the cultural and political evolution of the NBA athlete. Directed by Gotham Chopra and executive produced by LeBron James, Maverick Carter and Chopra, SHUT UP & DRIBBLE will premiere Saturday, November 3 at 9PM ET/6PM PT on SHOWTIME.

Shut Up And Dribble” is a not-so-subtle reference to Fox News host Laura Ingraham‘s insulting criticism of James and his views on Donald Trump.

During her program, Ingraham said she wasn’t interested in hearing political views from “someone who gets paid $100 million a year to bounce a ball” and that James should “keep the political comments to (himself). … Shut up and dribble.”

Clearly, she couldn’t shut him up.

SHUT UP AND DRIBBLE is a presentation of SHOWTIME Sports Documentary Films and SpringHill Entertainment. The series is executive produced by LeBron James, Maverick Carter, Rich Paul, Gotham Chopra, Martin Desmond Roe, Chris Uetwiller and Datari Turner.
