Trump Attacks LeBron James And "Dumb" Don Lemon

Golden State Warriors: Complete 2018 offseason grades

James, now playing for the L.A. Lakers, will serve, along with his business manager, Maverick Carter, as an executive producer of the three-part series for Showtime, Variety reported Monday.

The title of the series is a quote from Fox News host Laura Ingraham, who uttered the words in James' direction during a February airing of "The Ingraham Angle", imploring him to stick to basketball and keep his political opinions to himself. Showtime president and CEO David Nevins announced the news at the TCA summer press tour on Monday. 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 series, which will use Ingraham's comments as a "jumping-off point", will premiere in October.

As Lemon cycled through the outrage Trump's attacks caused over the weekend, he reminded viewers of the president's attacks on "low IQ" Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) along with his birtherism against former President Barack Obama.

Fortunately, there was an "overwhelmingly negative response" to Trump's "unfair and unkind attack on a good man, LeBron James", Lemon noted. He made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do. "I like Mike", the President wrote on August 4.

During the interview James said sports was something that unites Americans but that Trump "used sport to kind of divide us", drawing the retaliatory tweet from the president.

"What I've noticed over the past few months", Mr. James said.

That's something he said he can't "relate to" because "sports was the first time I was around someone white".

"I understand there are reports", athletic director Ira Smith said in a text to the Los Angeles Times.
