When New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning said he was an elite quarterback last summer, he got his fair share of snickers and laughs.  No one was laughing months later when he led the Giants to their second Super Bowl title.

In the NBA, it's no secret that Miami Heat forward LeBron James has his doubters one minute and high praise the next.

"You can see that with LeBron and what's going on in the NBA Finals, you lose one game, they are all over. They win the second game, everybody loves him," Manning told ESPN's "Mike and Mike" radio program. "Each week, depending (on) every game, you are either the best or you are terrible. It is so extreme."

His advice for James: "The most important thing you can do is concentrate on being prepared for each game, being mentally strong, having the confidence in yourself that you are going to go out there and make all the plays, and when you are put in that position, you try to do it."

James scored 32 points in Game 2 of NBA Finals to tie the series 1-1 with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
