"GOAT James doing what MJ never did," "Yeah but when China tells him to stop up and dribble, he doesn't say a thing" - Fans are divided when LeBron James filed a patent on the term "Shut Up And Dribble."

The term "Shut Up and Dribble" has been trademarked by LeBron James' co-founded firm.

According to USA Today, "Uninterrupted Inc. already sent the appropriate papers to the United States Trademark and Patent Office many days ago."

The action was a lighthearted jab to those who want the LA Lakers great to keep mute on social problems.
