LeBron James gives Tony Romo advice on dealing with pressure and critics

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo often is the center of scrutiny and criticism for the the team’s woes. Miami Heat superstar LeBron James, who is also a Cowboys fan, offered Romo some advice while in town to play the Dallas Mavericks.

“Just don’t care what everybody thinks,” James said, via CBS. “You work on your craft and at the end of the day if you went out there and gave it all you had and you laid it on the line for you and your teammates, you can sleep comfortably at night. Don’t watch ESPN and all these people who’ve never put on a uniform that’s trying to tell you what to do. It’s not about that. I think Tony’s at a point now in his career where he’s one of the great quarterbacks we have in our game and it’s because of HIS work ethic. Nobody woke him up in the morning to go to practice. Nobody told him to go to OTA’s, no one told him stay after practice and throw with his receivers. Just go out there and do it. We all make mistakes, but if you work on your game you can live with that.”
