LeBron James said in an interview Saturday that he just means “too much to society” to not share his political views.


“We will definitely not shut up and dribble. I will definitely not do that,” he said. “I mean too much to society, I mean too much to the youth, I mean too much to so many kids that feel like they don’t have a way out and they need someone to help lead them out of the situation they’re in.”

James was criticized by Fox News host Laura Ingraham Thursday after he said that Trump doesn’t give a “f*ck” about Americans.

She called his comments, “barely intelligible, not to mention un-grammatical” and said, “keep the political commentary to yourself or, as someone once said, shut up and dribble.” (RELATED: Laura Ingraham Dunks On LeBron — ‘This Is What Happens When You Attempt To Leave High School Early’)
