  • Michael Jordan says 'I support' LeBron James after Trump attack

James, now playing for the L.A. Lakers, will serve, along with his business manager, Maverick Carter, as an executive producer of the three-part series for Showtime, Variety reported Monday.

The title refers to a comment Fox News' Laura Ingraham made in February after the Golden State Warriors declined an invitation to the White House after winning the NBA Finals.

The series, set to air in October and presented by Showtime Sports Documentary Films and James' SpringHill Entertainment, will look at the role of National Basketball Association players in politics, commerce and fashion, starting with the 1976 ABA merger and moving into the modern league. Gotham Chopra, who directed Tom Brady's Facebook docuseries Tom vs. Time and AT&T's Religion of Sports series, will direct Shut Up And Dribble.

Neighbour Kelly Smith said the robbery was "heart-wrenching", adding: "That little boy will never be the same". The money will go toward the purchase of a riding lawnmower. "He didn't really have a whole lot of words".

National Basketball Association star LeBron James won praise on Monday from an OH school district for his support of disadvantaged children in his hometown of Akron, after U.S. President Donald Trump attacked him in a weekend tweet questioning his intelligence. Trump called Lemon the "dumbest man on television" in response to the James interview, and even though Lemon acknowledged that Trump has called lots of people stupid before, the CNN host made note of how often Trump insults the intelligence of people of color who criticize him. "And I was like, 'Oh wow, this is all because of sports, '" James said.

Mr. Lemon fired back Saturday morning, using first lady Melania Trump's anti-bullying campaign hashtag #BeBest.

"I am surprised [.] more about the fact that they look the other way when it comes out that he's having an affair with a Playboy bunny and a stripper at the same time just after his wife gave birth", she said.
