NFL cornerback Richard Sherman stopped by Business Insider and shared his thoughts on the recent scandal with Fox News anchor Laura Ingraham saying LeBron James should “shut up and dribble” and stay out of politics. Following is a transcript of the video.

And I would argue that sometimes the people that are telling these players to shut up and dribble the basketball are less informed than players are.

Especially on the impact of these protests and the social climate that everybody has to live in.
