LeBron repurposes Ingraham’s words
He then released a new video repurposing “shut up and dribble” on his “Uninterrupted” Twitter handle. The 30-second clip makes clear allusions to police violence against black Americans on the same day a memorial for George Floyd took place in Minneapolis.
It’s not the first time James has embraced Ingraham’s words to deliver his own message alongside “Uninterrupted” business partner Maverick Carter.
The pair also produced a three-part documentary for Showtime titled “Shut Up and Dribble.” Like on Thursday, James turned the derogatory phrase around to highlight the history of black athletes taking political and social stances in the 2018 series.
