Gotham Chopra, who directed Showtime's "Kobe Bryant's Muse" in 2015, helmed the project.
"Must they run their mouths like that?" His comment was, "I am more than an athlete". Ingraham published a book way back in 2006 entitled, you guessed it, Shut Up And Sing: How Elites from Hollywood, Politics and the Media Are Subverting America.
He continued: "LeBron James is one of many competitors whose place in the spotlight has led not to silence but perspective, and he, Maverick Carter and Gotham Chopra have given us an important, insightful docuseries that should bring their fans and fellow citizens to a higher level of discourse, rather than the dismissal satirized in the title".
"Unlike this president who lashes out wildly at anyone who criticizes him, LeBron James - in addition to being a brilliant black man, a superstar in his sport, and a hero to his community - is taking the road, which is exactly where he belongs", Lemon said Monday. "I'd sit across from Barack [Obama], though".
Lemon began by going through his recent interview with James - which went beyond the basketball star's political views and placed great focus on how he's building a public school for at-risk children.
Lemon went on to accuse Trump of racial undertones in his remark after Trump said that Lemon had made James look smart, which according to the president "isn't easy to do".
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.
No word yet on whether the first lady - or Ingraham, for that matter - is open to watching "Shut Up and Dribble" when it airs this fall.
