San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich has never been afraid to speak his mind on social issues, and he is now supporting LeBron James' right to do the same. On Sunday, Popovich defended James against comments from Fox News host Laura Ingraham and also discussed the positive example the superstar has made for young kids, via Bleacher Report's Greg Swartz. The latest controversy started when James and Kevin Durant discussed social issues and U.S. President Donald Trump on The Undefeated, and Ingraham responded by telling them to "shut up and dribble," via Scott Gleeson of USA Today. James didn't back down from his comments in his response to Ingraham.
