CHICAGO — The Rev. Jesse Jackson says he’s deeply insulted by a Fox News host’s “attack” on Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James.

Political commentator Laura Ingraham criticized the three-time NBA champion for his recent comments about social issues, suggesting he should “shut up and dribble.”

Jackson says it’s important for James, Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and other NBA players to keep speaking out against injustice and the behavior of President Trump.

Jackson said Monday that James’ “slam dunk for justice is needed.” James says he’ll continue to “talk about what’s really important.”
