LeBron James fires back at Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s ‘stay out of politics’ comment

Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James made it known that he is the wrong guy to deal with when it comes to just shutting up and not minding political and social issues.

Football star Zlatan Ibrahimovic previously said that LeBron should “stay out of politics” and he should just “do what he’s good at”.

The four-time NBA champion fired back against the Swedish striker during his postgame press conference.

“I have 300+ kids at my school who need a voice and I’m their voice,” James said.

“I speak from a very educated mind. I’m kind of the wrong guy to actually go at, because I do my homework.”

Zlatan’s comments mirrored previous statement from Laura Ingraham’s controversial “shut up and dribble” towards Lebron, which was problematic considering that the NBA has been advocating for social justice and racial equality.
