ESPN was good enough to help LeBron James with "The Decision," but the superstar thinks it's better if fellow athletes don't watch the network.
The Miami Heat star, who is a huge Dallas Cowboys fan, offered quarterback Tony Romo some advice, via ESPNDallas.com's Calvin Watkins:
Just don't care what everybody thinks. If you care about your craft and at the end of the day if you went out there and you gave it everything you had and you laid it out on the line for your teammates, you can sleep comfortably at night. Don't watch ESPN and all these so-called 'everyone knows what to do that ain't never put on a uniform, trying to tell you what to do' [shows].
Don't watch ESPN? That seems a bit strange given James' television special a few years ago.
ESPN's Bob Ley wasn't going to let James get away with that comment:
Help me here, @KingJames. "Don't watch ESPN." - except when you're the focus of a 1 hr show annoucing your free agent destination?— Bob Ley (@BobLeyESPN) February 19, 2014
And boom goes the dynamite!
Obviously, James was just trying to tell Romo not to listen to all of the critics. For Romo, he is the No. 1 target for football fans—and it looks like LeBron knows how that feels.
