LeBron James: Leave Tim Tebow Alone

by August 04, 2011

LeBron James took to Twitter last night to angrily vent after hearing Tim Tebow get criticized on television. From the Sun-Sentinel: “Miami’s most maligned has offered his support to Florida football’s favorite son. Amid criticism from ESPN NFL analyst Merril Hoge regarding Tim Tebow’s potential to emerge as the starting quarterback of the Denver Broncos, Miami Heat forward LeBron James went on the defensive Wednesday night on his Twitter account. ‘Tim Tebow will succeed in the NFL,’ James posted. ‘He’s a hard worker, a student of the game, a natural born leader and most of all a WINNER! It takes time and he’ll be nice.’ James followed up by offering. ‘Listened to Merril Hoge today on SC and he was just blasting Tebow. The man hasn’t even play a full season and it’s only his 2nd year in.’ In another post, James said, ‘Guys get on that TV and act like they was all WORLD when they played. How ’bout encouraging him and wishing him the best instead of hating!!'”
