    Fox News’ Laura Ingraham sparked nationwide controversy this week after telling Cleveland Cavaliers star Lebron James and Golden State Warriors role player Kevin Durant to avoid discussing politics and to “shut up and dribble.” Liberals decried the supposedly racist undertones of her comments, but last night the host of The Ingraham Angle refused to to apologize for her remarks saying, “the left and the media attack dogs can dish it out can’t they, but they sure can’t take it.”On Thursday night, Ingraham aired a video featuring the aforementioned NBA stars and an ESPN host discussing politics and the state of...

    Kevin Durant and LeBron James' video on Uninterrupted covered a multitude of topics: being All-Stars, being rich black men and living under President Donald Trump. James has been a vocal critic of Trump in the past, and this was no different. "(Trump) doesn't give a f--- about people," James said, and Durant agreed with him. That prompted Fox News host Laura Ingraham to respond to their comments about Trump. She said they should "shut up and dribble" instead of giving their thoughts on the president of The United States. In an interview with USA Today's Sam Amick, Durant responded to...

    Prodded on by the approving ESPN SportsCenter host Cari Champion, LeBron James delivered his latest installment of attacks on President Trump today. The professional basketball star who tweeted the unprofessional message "u bum" to the president last year, uses his Uninterrupted internet forum to blast Trump as someone who "really don't give a f--- about the people." Zachary Ripple, online sports editor for The New York Daily News, gave James more mileage by posting the video on his site along with a short story. This episode of Uninterrupted, titled "Rolling with the Champion: LeBron James and Kevin Durant," features Champion...

    LeBron James made a statement during an NBA game with his shoes — one black, one white, with the word "equality" in capital gold letters on the back of each. Then, after the game, James made a statement about President Donald Trump, saying: "This is a beautiful country and we're never going to let one person dictate how beautiful and how powerful we are." Earlier this year, James called Trump “a bum” on Twitter and also said at Cleveland’s preseason media day: “He doesn’t understand how many kids, no matter the race, look up to the president of the United...

    Lebron James was downright giddy over the demonstrations that swept across the NFL last Sunday, when scores of players “took a knee” to protest the racial injustice that allegedly pervades the nation which they very clearly hold in low regard. “I salute the NFL, the players, the coaches, the owners and the fans … it was unbelievable,” the $400 million hoopster said about a majority-black league whose players earn, on average, $1.9 million per sixteen-week season — more than the average full-time American worker earns in an entire lifetime. “There was solidarity,” he raved. “There was no divide, no...

    To cleanse the palate, I think he means “education” in terms of civic education, i.e. familiarity with policy and the candidates’ backgrounds, not grade-level achieved. It’d be weird if he didn’t since James himself famously skipped college after being drafted number one out of high school. Still, how often do you get to watch a mega-star athlete call the voters of his home state ignorant? This’ll be an interesting test to see if there’s anything Ohio’s favorite son can say or do to piss off his fans. Besides committing to play for another team at the end of a...

    LeBron James called Donald Trump a "bum" after the US President rescinded an invitation for Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry to go to the White House. Trump tweeted Saturday that Curry is no longer invited to the White House because of what the president called hesitation by the two-time NBA MVP in deciding whether to make the traditional champions' trip to Washington. That prompted an angry response from Cleveland Cavaliers star James. James tweeted: "U bum. Stephen Curry already said he ain't going! So therefore ain't no invite. Going to White House was a great honour until you showed...

    LeBron James took to Twitter Saturday evening to express his sadness and anger over the events that took place earlier in the day in Charlottesville, Va., as well as criticize President Donald Trump for his poor leadership. "It's sad what's going on in Charlottesville," LeBron tweeted. "Is this the direction our country is heading? Make America Great Again huh?! He said that." One 32-year-old woman died and at least 19 more were injured after a car targeted and barreled into a crowd of protesters opposing a racist rally led by white supremacists in Charlottesville on Saturday.

    LeBron James needs a reality check! LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers are facing off against the Golden State Warriors in the NBA finals, but LeBron made headlines for another reason. Someone spray-painted the gate of his Brentwood, California, mansion with the so-called “N-word.” The Cavs star player held a press conference, blew up this minor incident, castigated white America as “racist” and lamented how bad blacks have it in America. “No matter how much money you have, no matter how famous you are, no matter how many people admire you, being black in America is tough. … And we’ve...

    An L.A. home owned by LeBron James was the target of a hate crime -- someone spray painted the n-word on the front gate and detectives are now investigating, cops tell TMZ Sports. Here's what we know ... multiple LAPD units and a neighborhood patrol vehicle responded to the home early Wednesday morning. We're told the word was scrawled on the outer gate. We're told investigators are looking for security footage from neighbors which may show the perpetrator. Records show LeBron bought the house back in 2015. The graffiti has since been covered up. We're told LeBron was not at...

    CLEVELAND -- LeBron James tumbled into the wife of star PGA Tour golfer Jason Day while chasing a loose ball Thursday night, causing her to be taken from the floor by stretcher and to a local hospital. James crashed into Ellie Day, knocking her chair over and landing on her as he fell out of bounds with 3:07 left in the fourth quarter of the Cleveland Cavaliers' 104-100 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder. Day was down for several minutes, and the game was halted while she received medical attention, which included having a brace placed around her neck and...

    LeBron James spoke out on gun control, one day after another infant killed in Cleveland and Oregon tragedy. “There’s no room for guns”, James said, urging greater gun control to make individuals think twice before resorting to deadly violence. James said he saw news of the child Wakefield’s shooting break across his phone while he was sitting at home with his three children and “it automatically just hit me”. “I feel like if we can do our part, through my foundation and what we do, then maybe it can possibly bring the number of percentages down from, I don’t know,...

    I have a question for LeBron James that I really hope he'll field someday. A question that can be asked a variety of ways: What kind of coach do you want? Who out there is a coach for whom you'd actually like to play? Who could ‎the Cleveland Cavaliers hire that would earn your backing? I don't have the answers to any of those queries. I know this much, though: James is too brilliant as a basketball player, too truly great, to behave the way he did toward David Blatt during the NBA Finals. We literally saw "Peak LeBron" and...

    Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors captured their first NBA title since 1975 last night in a 105-97 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Curry and Andre Iguodala, the Finals' MVP who called the Warriors a "team of believers" in post-game interviews, teamed up for 50 points, while the Cavs' LeBron James added 32. Even after the greatest achievement in basketball, Curry knows there's a much bigger prize in life, long after the buzzer sounds. In 2013, Curry talked to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes for the March issue of its bi-monthly magazine, writing that his faith identifies him more...

    OAKLAND — What's one more week compared to a 40-year championship drought? What's one more week when it means a shot at the first title in franchise history? The Warriors eliminated the Rockets with a 104–90 victory in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals on Wednesday, advancing to an NBA Finals date with the Cavaliers. This is a matchup worth waiting for, and a little patience will be required. Because both Golden State and Cleveland made quick work of their conference finals foes, the NBA will hit the pause button for a full week before the championship series opens...
