LeBron James is getting the last laugh.
The Los Angeles Lakers forward (it’s still kind of weird to say that), is producing a brand new documentary series for Showtime.
Set up to debut in October, Shut Up and Dribble takes a look in how involved athletes are in today’s political climate in which many are looking for them to bring some leadership in order to help our communities. It will look into the 1976 merger of the ABA and NBA, and the role past athletes have had in making political statements, and their growth as successful icons in business, fashion, and more.
It’s name comes from a phrase Fox News host Laura Ingraham used to call out James in February after he decided to give some of his opinions on political topics during an interview.
This comes after LeBron James decided to open up the “I Promise” school in Akron, Ohio. He was recently attacked by President Trump for comments made during an interview discussing the school.
James after has a show titled The Shop debuting on HBO, August 28th.
