LeBron James To Executive Produce Showtime Docu-Series "Shut Up & Dribble"

LeBron James To Executive Produce Showtime Docu-Series

The controversy serves as a prologue to the series as it chronicles the modern history of the National Basketball Association and its players, starting with the 1976 merger of the freewheeling ABA and the more conventional National Basketball Association of today.

The new show is scheduled to premier in October, the same month James will make his debut with the Los Angeles Lakers, Variety reports.

James is the executive producer of the series along with business partner Maverick Carter and agent Rich Paul. 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. Recently, LeBron was mocked by President Donald Trump for opening up a school in his hometown that benefits youth from at-risk neighborhoods.

Michael Jordan said he supports LeBron James after the fellow basketball legend was attacked by President Trump in a tweet late Friday.

"If being a star athlete is inherently a political experience, "Shut Up and Dribble" tells that complex and dramatic story from the past to the present and from the inside out", Showtime President David Nevins wrote in a news release, Mediaite reported.

5 killed in CA when plane crashes into parking lot
Five people were killed when a twin-engine aircraft crashed near the South Coast Plaza shopping center in Costa Mesa today. The aircraft went down in in Santa Ana on Sunday afternoon, with authorities saying there were no survivors on board.

During James' CNN interview, James expressed disappointment with how Trump has used sports to divide Americans.

"Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. I like Mike", the President wrote on August 4.

USA first lady Melania Trump also appeared to take exception with her husband's attack on James.

"Sports was the first time I was ever around someone white".

"Look, there might be a cautionary lesson in LeBron for kids", she continued.
