LeBron James to Fox News host: ‘We will definitely not shut up and dribble”
LOS ANGELES – LeBron James thanked Fox News host Laura Ingraham, though not by name, for raising awareness, highlighting the injustice that James has been underscoring for years and giving the 14-time All-Star a magnified platform to respond to her comments.
“I actually laughed first when I first saw the reports and then I watched the video and I saw exactly how it was put off,” James said from Saturday’s All-Star availability. “Well first of all, I had no idea who she is or what she do. So she won in that case because now I know who she is.”
“We live in a, we’re back to everything I’ve been talking about for the last few years,” James continued. “It lets me know that everything I’ve been saying is correct for her to have that type of reaction. But we will definitely not shut up and dribble. I will definitely not do that. I mean too much to society, I mean too much to the youth, I mean too much to so many kids that feel like they don’t have a way out and they need someone to help lead them out of the situation they’re in.”
I commend James for speaking up for himself; that is what real men and women do that have any self-respect for themselves. What make it more tolerable, is if they are right or accurate about their opinions. He may have to work a little on that.
This is the part of James’s statement I am going to be watching closely.
But we will definitely not shut up and dribble. I will definitely not do that. I mean too much to society, I mean too much to the youth, I mean too much to so many kids that feel like they don’t have a way out and they need someone to help lead them out of the situation they’re in.”
If he does what he claims he is going to do, my hat is off to him. If he does NOT follow through with his decloration of action; all he will have done, as so many before him; is sell a lot of WOLF TICKETS.
For those who do not now the meaning of Wolf Tickets:
2)to do a favor which is redeemable by a favor.
2)”i’ m calling in all my wolf tickets to get this guy”, meaning all people who owe will help me out.
