Retired NBA star Kobe Bryant won an Oscar for the short animated film “Dear Basketball” during the early hours of this morning.

And during his congratulatory speech at the award ceremony, Bryant was in full support of LeBron James regarding his comments on United States president Donald Trump, which prompted FOX News anchor Laura Ingraham to say on air to James “Shut up and dribble”.

“As basketball players, we’re really supposed to shut up and dribble, but I’m glad we do a little bit more than that,” said Bryant.
