Miami Heat forward and card-carrying Dallas Cowboys fan LeBron James, in town to drop a season-high 42 points in a comeback victory over the Mavericks, offered some advice for Dallas signal caller Tony Romo this week.
"Just don't care what everybody thinks," James said, per ESPN Dallas. "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].
"It's not about that. I think Tony's at a point now in his career where he's one of the greatest quarterbacks we have in our game because of his work ethic. Nobody woke him up in the morning to go to practice. Nobody told him to go to OTAs. Nobody told him to stay after practice and throw to his receivers. He just goes out there and does it. We all make mistakes, but at the end of the day, if you work on your game, you can live with that.”
If anyone is qualified to speak to Romo on the subject, it’s the man they call “King James.” It’s hard to remember now, but just a few years ago, a lot of folks thought of James as a choker, great statistically but unable to win the big one--labels that continue to follow Romo around to this day.
