Recently, many athletes including Colin Kaepernick and LeBron James have become entwined in politics in order to speak about racial injustice.

Not only did Donald Trump call out James on Twitter, but James was also told to “shut up and dribble,” by Fox News host, Laura Ingraham. Her words were to urge LeBron James to stick to basketball and to keep his political opinions to himself.

To examine the crossing of politics and sports, a three-part documentary series named, “Shut Up and Dribble” has been made by Showtime where LeBron James is listed as an executive producer.

The series will portray NBA players in politics, fashion, and commerce dating back from the 1979 ABA merger and moving to the modern league today.

Showtime CEO, David Nevins, stated, “LeBron James is one of many competitors whose place in the spotlight has led not to silence but perspective…”

The series, set to air in October and presented by Showtime Sports Documentary Films and James’ SpringHill Entertainment.
