LeBron James feels that he and Broncos QB Tim Tebow have a lot in common. LeBron of course has been under media scrutiny since he was in high school and has only gotten worst since his arrival to south beach. Tebow’s unwavering faith in God and dedication to his religion coupled with some miraculous comebacks have also made him a polarizing sports figure.
LeBron addressed the similarities while in Denver to take on the Nuggets Friday night:
“I can relate to him a lot. I see how the media plays it sometimes and how the critics go at him,” James said. “To see him prove them wrong … he continues to stay positive and move forward. You respect that.”
Now, what does rapper Rick Ross have to do with both? Prior to the game King James was listening to a cut from the rapper’s latest mixtape, Rich Forever titled “F*ck ‘Em” the track opens with some lines about Tebow. ESPN sideline reporter Heather Cox decided to spit the lyrics so the viewers could get the full experience during a segment the Heat vs. Nuggets ESPN telecast.
