After the game, the two pals spoke briefly which quickly became a topic of discussion. Reporters pressed Romo on what the two discussed and Romo would only say that he “just told him, ‘You go get [championship] No. 3 for y’all, and I’ll go get No. 1 for us’.”
Before the game, James spoke at length about his favorite NFL team, the Dallas Cowboys. He spoke about his desire for the Cowboys to draft Johnny Manziel and took some time to give Tony Romo advice on how to deal with the expectations in Dallas.
“Just don’t care what everybody thinks,” he said. “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].
LeBron had much more to say, but let’s just focus on his “Don’t watch ESPN”, mainly because that’s what ESPN analyst Bob Ley decided to do. And in response to the comment, Ley took to his Twitter account to go after James.
Help me here, @KingJames. “Don’t watch ESPN.” – except when you’re the focus of a 1 hr show annoucing your free agent destination?
