HoopsHype Johnny Manziel rumors
LeBron James has always seen Johnny Manziel as a kindred spirit, consistently overanalyzed, sometimes harshly scrutinized. He's also known to be open to mentoring younger athletes, so he was receptive when a call came from people close to the Texas A&M quarterback. "They reached out to me when he was going through a lot of off-the-field things, that I thought was just overblown," James said. "He's not the only college kid that's ever went to a frat party, or the only college kid that ever had fun. But obviously, he's Johnny Manziel so it's blown out of proportion." Bleacher Report
Yes, they're together now. Wednesday, reports surfaced that Manziel had signed with James' childhood friend and business manager, Maverick Carter, and the LRMR agency. "Is it official yet?" James asked before Thursday's game against the Knicks. "Maybe?" Assured that it was public knowledge, James elaborated. "At the end of the day, he's an unbelievable competitor," James said. "And we love what he brings to the table as far as being a football player and as far as being a young man that's trying to strive for greatness. So we're just happy to be a friend of his and be able to help him." Bleacher Report
