LeBron James wants the Dallas Cowboys to draft Johnny Manziel


Miami Heat super star LeBron James is close with Texas A&M Aggies star quarterback Johnny Manziel. James is even working with Manziel as a mentor of sorts.

“Probably more when some of the NCAA stuff was swirling around…a guy that really took me under his wing — and I’ll really forever be thankful for — is LeBron,” Manziel said on ESPN’s SVP and Russillo radio show in December, via the Dallas Morning News. “A guy that texted me every day whether it was words of advice or whatever it was. To check in on me and make sure I wasn’t getting crushed by all this or it wasn’t getting to me too much. I’m extremely thankful for him, just for reminding me every day that nothing matters other than your coaches, your family and your teammates and everything else outside is outside noise.”

So how would LeBron James feel about his favorite team, the Dallas Cowboys, drafting Manziel?
