If you’re a fan of the NBA, you know that LeBron James is the best player in the world right now. Everyone seems to want to be him or want to be friends with him. The Miami Heat star, however, has shown he has a bit of a man crush on a kid fresh out of college — Johnny Manziel.
The Cleveland Browns drafted Johnny Football with the No. 22 pick in this year’s NFL draft and things seem to be looking up for the city. While it’s unlikely that Manziel will turn around the team, everyone in the city is buzzing about the possibility of a fresh start.
James, an Akron, Ohio, native, has shown major support for Manziel — even kind of to a weird level.
LeBron posted a picture of himself wearing a new Johnny Manziel Nike shirt that doesn’t even come out until June 5 for the rest of us fans. Why is LeBron all about Johnny lately?
You might be asking how he can have a man crush because of one picture and the patented Johnny “money” celebration. Well, in case you don’t recall, King James also wore a Cleveland Browns jersey with Manziel’s name on the back just one day after he got drafted.
Come on, LeBron, you’re better than that.
I get that athletes can be fans of each other, but he’s acting all Drake-like over Manziel. As you probably know, Drake is a huge fanboy when it comes to famous athletes.
As the best NBA player in the world, maybe he should be wearing your jersey and not the other way around.
