The NFL Draft was this past weekend and fans everywhere watched as their teams drafted players that will become the stars of tomorrow. But an NBA star of today is less than happy with his favorite team for passing on someone he considers to be a friend, as LeBron James was none too pleased with Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys for passing on Johnny Manziel in the first round of the draft.
Shane Battier was with LeBron in the training room last night when the Cowboys passed on Johnny Manziel. Battier: "Oh, it was ugly."

LeBron was seen after the draft in a Manziel Cleveland Browns uniform and he has been a supporter of Manziel’s since the quarterback made it big and started to yield criticism. The only criticism LeBron has though is being directed at the Cowboys for passing on Manziel this past weekend.
