LeBron James, the Akron, Ohio native who is a huge Dallas Cowboys fan, was reportedly upset that the Cowboys did not select quarterback Johnny Manziel in the First Round of the NFL Draft on Thursday.
James and Manziel are friends and even share business associates, and James sported Manziel’s Cleveland Browns #2 jersey on Friday.
The Cowboys had Manziel as their top-rated player on the board at the time of their selection, but decided instead to take an offensive lineman Zack Martin instead. In the meantime, Cleveland fans can only hope the two can reunite in Cleveland.

Shane Battier was with LeBron in the training room last night when the Cowboys passed on Johnny Manziel. Battier: “Oh, it was ugly.”
