ESPN Anchor Defends His Job While Getting At LeBron James [Photo]

Sportscenter anchor, and host of Outside the Lines Bob Ley has been a part of the ESPN family since its beginnings.

He is best known for breaking some of sports biggest stories, but today he decided to become the story.

LeBron James contributed to a piece for ESPNDallas in which he gave his favorite football team’s quarterback some valuable advice about his recovery from back surgery.

“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].”

Ley took exception to the quote, and decided to put his two cents in, while defending the brand he has worked to build.

He has since deleted the tweet. Did he make a good point?
