When LeBron James was first made aware of Laura Ingraham's comments on Fox News last week - including telling James and fellow National Basketball Association star Kevin Durant to "shut up and dribble" - he laughed.

LeBron James once again criticized President Donald Trump, saying he doesn't "give a f-- about the people" in a video published on Uninterrupted.

"I'm incredibly proud of our players for using the platform they have as players in the NBA and on social media to speak out on issues that are important to them", Silver said Saturday before the NBA All-Star Skills Challenge.

In the video, the National Basketball Association stars discuss the current political climate, which includes James accusing President Donald Trump of being "someone who doesn't understand the people, and really don't give a f- about the people".

Laura Ingraham isn't backing down from her embarrassing remarks about LeBron James and Kevin Durant. "I have used a variation of that title for more than 15 years to respond to performers who sound off on politics", Ingraham said.".

Kevin Durant was asked about Ingraham's comments, and didn't obfuscate in his response.

Krueger's silver ends U.S. speedskating medal drought
Li Jinyu of China took silver and Kim Boutin of Canada earned bronze to go with her same colored medal in the 500. One of the wipeouts took down medal contender Marianne St-Gelais of Canada in the 1,500 semifinals.

Ingraham, on her Fox News show, The Ingraham Angle, said the athletes were not elected to political office, so they should keep the political commentary to themselves.

"And if you reply 'stick to sports, ' you should probably tune of out Fox News because they've got karate guys talking climate change on there".

"I'm still going to be a citizen here in the U.S. when I'm done playing basketball, and my voice still doesn't matter at that point?" That was definitely an ignorant comment. When I was growing up, there was like three jobs that you looked [up to] for inspiration. In an endorsement published by Business Insider, James wrote, "I support Hillary because she will build on the legacy of my good friend, President Barack Obama".

Long also defended James on Twitter, writing "have known about LeBron".

James also made a statement with his footwear with the words "More Than An Athlete" written on the side of his shoes.
