Tim Tebow is in the middle of a media storm with ESPN NFL analyst Merril Hoge just pretty much shredding him.
But not to worry, LeBron James has his back. At least on twitter.
Wednesday night LeBron tweeted:
Tim Tebow will succeed in the NFL. 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
Listened to Merril Hoge today on SC and he was just blasting Tebow. The man hasn’t even play a full season and its only his 2nd year in.
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!!
Yea LeBron haters, how about encouraging him and wishing him the best instead of hating. You are all just a bunch of meanies.
Insert your own jokes here about LeBron and winning, I’m not going to waste the energy to come up with them. Tebow did win in college, as a running quarterback in an offense that would never fly in the NFL. The book is still out on Tebow at the next level. And Hoge’s job is to draw viewers to ESPN, seems to me he is succeeding at that today.
