Bob Ley zings LeBron James on Twitter

LeBron James made headlines this week when offering some advice to Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. Namely, James advised him not to watch ESPN. Here is the quote in context:

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].

Well, an employee at ESPN had a problem with what James said, and that employee was none other than Bob Ley. And Ley took to Twitter to voice his discontent with James by essentially calling him a hypocrite.
"The Decision" has been something James' critics have used for years against him. But I think it's time we all let that incident go. Although the Miami Heat star admits the show in and of itself was a bad idea, he called the move "the best thing that ever happened" to him, claiming the miscue spurred self growth and maturity.

Obviously, the "don't watch ESPN" comment wasn't meant to be a low blow to the network by James. He simply believes Romo needs to avoid listening to negativity and criticism.
