Mutombo is reacting to the recent comments by FOX News host Laura Ingraham — who said she doesn’t care to get political advice from “someone who gets paid $100 million a year to bounce a ball.”
The comments sparked a nationwide debate on whether athletes should use their platforms to speak on these issues — and Mutombo says the answer is a resounding YES.
“I think everyone in the U.S. has rights to express themselves. When there’s a problem affecting one part of the society, it becomes the responsibility of everybody.”
We then asked if LeBron should continue to weigh in on polical topics — and Dikembe told us it should be a team effort.
“Everyone, not just LeBron … everyone.”
