LeBron James’ Uninterrupted, Inc. filed a request with the United States Trademark and Patent Office to trademark the phrase “shut up and dribble,” per Scooby Axson of USA Today.

James’ connection to the phrase dates back to the comments Fox News personality Laura Ingraham made about athletes like James and Kevin Durant expressing opinions on political and social issues in 2018.
