"Shut Up And Dribble" is an impressive demonstration of the great value in principled athletes of color speaking their mind and the lessons available to white America if it chooses to listen.

Shut Up and Dribble is a good exploration of all the ways that black athletes couldn't remain apart from racism or politics even if they wanted to - which, as it happens, many of them don't.

It pulses with an agility that celebrates basketball and its heroes in a way that infects casual fans or even - gasp - non-sports viewers.

That is, admittedly, a lot of ground to cover, and even at nearly three hours "Shut Up and Dribble" invariably has a somewhat arbitrary feel to it. Still, the big inflection points paint a cohesive picture.

After watching this documentary, the next time you hear someone imply that LeBron or Steph Curry should just shut up and dribble, you'll know the right response: Shut up and consider your basketball history.

Somewhat light on analysis, don't go into Shut Up and Dribble expecting to find out what is particularly special about basketball or why it appears to foment unrest.

Nov 13, 2018 | Full Review…

Shut Up & Dribble is equal parts fascinating, horrifying, educational and entertaining, as it picks specific moments and athletes in American history to highlight where politics, pop culture, and sports crashed right into each other.

Dec 18, 2018 | Full Review…

This is not a revolutionary subject, but it is a relevant one in a time where athletes are regularly derided for expression at the alter of energizing a racial animus in conservative voters without actually listening to what they have to say.

With Shut Up and Dribble, LeBron James is taking what he knows about basketball and doing something.
