Barkley to LeBron: ‘Keep on Dribbling and Don’t Ever Shut Up’

NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley hosted “Saturday Night Live” this week and used his monologue to hit Fox News Channel’s Laura Ingraham over her telling Cleveland Cavaliers star forward LeBron James to “shut up and dribble” instead of criticizing President Donald Trump.

“I’m an athlete, and athletes have been speaking out a lot this year,” Barkley began. “They’ve been kneeling during the anthem, refusing to go to the White House, but a lot of professional athletes are worried about [how] speaking out might hurt their career. Well, here’s something that contradicts all of that, me. I’ve been saying whatever the hell I want for 30 years, and I’m doing great.”

The TNT analyst later added, “So, LeBron, keep on dribbling, and maybe one day you can host SNL for the fourth time, just like me.”
