LeBron James to Tony Romo: “Just don’t care about what everybody thinks.”
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was in attendance Tuesday night as his hometown Mavericks hosted LeBron James and the Miami Heat. For the uninitiated, LBJ is a huge Cowboys fan, and he was pulled aside by Romo after the Heat secured a 117-106 victory.
LeBron didn’t go into detail about their conversation, but did offer Romo some advice:
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].
Romo is one of the NFL’s more talented quarterbacks, but his inability to deliver in big games has garnered him some harsh criticism, similar to the criticism James received before he put together back-to-back championship seasons.
Aside from relating to Romo and giving him some confidence with his words, as Romo is recovering from back surgery, James also said he would love to see Johnny Manziel in Dallas. That’s a long shot, as Manziel will probably be gone in the top seven or eight picks in May’s draft.
For now, LeBron will continue to seek his third title, while Romo will embark on the journey to try to get his first come September.
