The Miami Heat and LeBron James were busy winning their second game against the Brooklyn Nets on Thursday night, but at the same time there was a little even in New York called the NFL Draft that was going on.
While LeBron was winning another game on his quest to a three-peat, his hometown Cleveland Browns were busy drafting Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, a player that LeBron has repeatedly endorsed over his career. The latest endorsement came when LeBron was spotted wearing a Johnny Manziel jersey not long after Johnny Football was drafted by Cleveland.

It’s not surprising that LeBron is still supporting Manziel, especially now that Manziel has a Cleveland connection. The LeBron-Cleveland connection isn’t nearly as happy at the moment, but perhaps Johnny Football will be a bridge that brings the two sides back together.
