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

Now, James is turning the insult into a sharp retort.

Showtime president and CEO David Nevins announced on Monday that James and SpringHill would be executive producing a documentary series in conjunction with Showtime Sports Documentary Films titled "Shut Up and Dribble".

Showtime's press release explicitly calls out the fact that the title comes from Ingraham's comment.

While Mr. James has not yet responded to Mr. Trump's insult, other National Basketball Association players came out in support of him, including Stephen Curry, Bradley Beal and Donovan Mitchell, CBS News reported. She said that James and Kevin Durant, among others, should "shut up and dribble", instead of sharing their political commentary. Gotham Chopra, who directed Showtime's "Kobe Bryant's Muse" in 2015, helmed the project. The league soon became an incubator for many of its top athletes to grow their brands beyond the court, becoming powerful players in commerce and fashion, and transcending the game to become cultural icons.

Set to debut in October, the same month James suits up for his new team, the series looks at the changing role of athletes in the current political and cultural climate against the backdrop of the National Basketball Association.

On Friday night, President Trump reacted to an interview Lemon conducted with LeBron James by questioning their intelligence.

CNN host Don Lemon has responded to Donald Trump's criticism of his interview with LeBron James, saying the president "traffics in racism".

Although James has always been a Trump critic, calling the president "U bum" in a 2017 tweet, Trump's tweet was the president's first attack on the player, who just opened up a school for underprivileged children in his hometown of Akron, Ohio.

The series is titled "Shut Up and Dribble", taken from conservative pundit Laura Ingraham's remarks to James in February when players from the Golden State Warriors declined an invitation to the White House after the 2018 NBA Finals.
