Gregg Popovich Flames Fox News’ Laura Ingraham Over LeBron Criticism (VIDEO)
Gregg Popovich has never been one to shy away from uncomfortable conversations.
The San Antonio Spurs head coach was recently on a conference call with the media when he addressed past comments made by FOX anchor Laura Ingraham. She made headlines for telling LeBron James to “shut up and dribble” back in 2018.
While making his point he brought up a “clueless” comment from Ingraham regarding Confederate statues.
“Laura Ingraham, the lady who told LeBron to shut up and dribble, said a quote that it became political and all the statues had to come down but nobody was paying any attention,” Popovich said. “I don’t know if she meant harm or not, but it’s a clueless comment by a white person because the white people probably didn’t pay any attention to it because it didn’t affect them when they walked by a Confederate statue everyday.”
Ingraham became a topic of conversation earlier this year after the clip of her telling LeBron to “shut up and dribble” did not align to how she reacted to Drew Brees’ comments about the Anthem when she stated he has the right to say what he wants.
