Zlatan Ibrahimovic shocked the world today when he revealed that he is part of the “shut up and dribble crowd”. Now Lebron James responded to Zlatan Ibrahimovic criticizing his activism with a bold and emotional statement. With the momentum of a huge win over the Trailblazers and his shirt off, Lebron calmly addressed Zlatan Ibrahimovic dissing him for speaking out against social injustices.
The most noteworthy moment of his lengthy reaction was the part where Lebron James hailed, “I have over 300 kids at my school who need a voice and I’m their voice. I’m the wrong guy to go at, I do my homework”. That’s a nice way of Lebron telling Zlatan Ibrahimovic slow your role. It’s almost like that moment in the 2017 Finals where he told Durant “why you talking crazy for” during a heated exchange.

Hopefully Lebron’s reaction to Zlatan Ibrahimovic criticism him will help him realize that he is severely misguided. In the video above Zlatan also said that he would never speak out the way Lebron does, because of his “status”. Ironically his “status” should be the main reason why he speaks out politically. With that status comes an unmatched ability to make an impact the average person just doesn’t have. Nevertheless, it should be noted that Zlatan’s feelings about Lebron’s activism could be the result of a culture difference as well, this situation isn’t just cut and dry.
Lebron James beefing with Zlatan Ibrahimovic in 2021? Imagine that.
