Lebron James of the Miami Heat is no stranger to ESPN as he appears on there almost nightly, but he recently had some advice for someone that blew up in his face. James recently told Dallas Cowboys' quarterback Tony Romo not to watch the all-sports network, but on Feb. 19, 2014, ESPN's Bob Ley took to Twitter and wouldn't let the "King" get away with it.
For those that aren't aware of it, James is a huge fan of the Dallas Cowboys, and he recently had some advice for Romo so he put it out there:
"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]."
Essentially, LeBron James is advising athletes not to watch ESPN, but he seems to forget something. James seems to have forgotten that just a few years ago, he had a one-hour special called "The Decision" that was all about his new free agent destination.
Bob Ley made sure that he didn't forget that.
"Help me here, @KingJames. 'Don't watch ESPN.' - except when you're the focus of a 1 hr show announcing your free agent destination?"
While LeBron James simply may have been trying to lessen the harsh blow of criticism that Tony Romo gets; it ended up backfiring a bit. Odd that he would forget about that.
When James speaks of those at ESPN never having put on a uniform, he seems to forget about Bruce Bowen, Jalen Rose, Cris Carter, Tom Jackson, Tedy Bruschi, Jeff Saturday, Jon Barry, Brent Barry, Mike Golic, Orel Hershiser, John Kruk, and the list can continue on.
