Fox News host Laura Ingraham’s rant about LeBron needing to “shut up and dribble” after the Cavs star criticized Donald Trump for not caring about “the people” has spurned plenty of outrage in the black community & sports world, with many pointing to the fact that few in sports are as qualified to give opinions on such heavy topics as he is.
NBA legend Dikembe Mutombo was asked how he felt about the controversial comments, & how important it is that LeBron isn’t alone in being vocal about this:
“I think everyone in the U.S. has rights to express themselves. When there’s a problem affecting one part of the society, it becomes the responsibility of everybody.”
“Everyone, not just LeBron … everyone.”
