It appears LeBron James has once again been told to shut up and dribble.
Zlatan Ibrahimović, a Swedish soccer player, is known for two things– his flashy moves on the field and his penchant for always having something to say. But this time, he may have selected the wrong topic to comment on.
In a recent interview, Zlatan said that some sports stars should refrain from getting involved in political matters instead of just focusing on the game they excel at– naming James.
“[LeBron] is phenomenal at what he’s doing, but I don’t like when people have some kind of status, they go and do politics at the same time,” Ibrahimovic told Discovery+ in Sweden. “Do what you’re good at. Do the category you do. I play football because I’m the best at playing football. I don’t do politics. If I would be a political politician, I would do politics.
This is very reminiscent of when Fox host Laura Ingraham told James to “shut up and dribble” once he began commenting on politics and Trump‘s dismal presidency.
So, of course, James clapped back at Zlatan, saying that he refuses to stay quiet when it comes to the issues that plague the Black community and will continue fighting for equality.
