LeBron James won’t simply “shut up and dribble” like a Fox News anchor told him to.

After Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade and Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Chris Long came to his defense Friday, Feb. 16, James himself hit back at Laura Ingraham over his criticism of President Donald Trump.

James said on “Rolling with the Champion” Thursday, Feb. 15 that Trump “really don’t give a f— about the people,” which led Ingraham to proclaim that he should “keep the political commentary to yourself or as someone once said, shut up and dribble.”

“It’s always unwise to seek political advice from someone who gets paid $100 million a year to bounce a ball,” she also said on “The Ingraham Angle.”

Wade had remained silent until he posted a photo with lights reading “I am more than an athlete.”

And if there was any doubt that he was referring to Ingraham, his caption ended speculation.

“#WeWillNotShutUpAndDribble,” it said.

King James also may have indirectly responded to Ingraham on Snapchat, posting a carefree selfie poolside.

“Smiling through it all!” his caption read. “Can’t believe this is my life.”
