Sure, I could have taken the Denver Nuggets for my own Colorado gives Wyoming most of our sports fandom possibilities , or even the Utah Jazz which, considering my aunt illustrated a locally published book for them in , I probably should have? Sorry, Kristi! Also, I have had, since I was very young, one single, tiny superpower, and that superpower is looking away from any sports-adjacent thing the moment anything interesting or important happens. Like, the two seconds it takes for Olympic divers to flip and spin between board and water. Like, the five seconds it takes to replay those dives twice.
CNN Give Laura Ingraham an inadvertent assist on "Shut Up and Dribble," a three-part Showtime documentary whose title directly quotes the Fox News host, before proceeding to recount the history of athletes -- and especially NBA players -- speaking out on issues.

President Donald Trump. James previously called Trump a "bum" and suggested people who voted for him made a mistake.

Ingraham also said that James should be a "cautionary lesson" for kids who try to leave high school early.

While this sort of conservative firebrand rhetoric is nothing new to Fox News, the comments by Ingraham ring especially hypocritical and hollow for the network and one of its lead hosts when attacking a celebrity like James. As Philadelphia Eagles defensive lineman Chris Long pointed out on Twitter on Friday morning, Fox News has welcomed the likes of Curt Schilling athlete , Bob Knight basketball coach , Kid Rock musician , Ted Nugent another musician , Chuck Norris actor , and Fabio Lanzoni guy with hair to discuss issues ranging from climate change to health care without once questioning their qualifications. Smith, a sports broadcaster, has been invited on the network numerous times. Neither man had much growing up nor had their fathers in their lives.
