Per ESPN, this isn’t the first encounter Manziel has had with the NBA’s best player:
Manziel said he befriended James when he was being investigated by the NCAA this summer for signing autographs for memorabilia brokers. Manziel told “The Dan Patrick Show” last month that the two would text each other every day during that time.
“Everyone was coming after me and there was so much criticism,” Manziel said. “I feel like LeBron deals with that every single day of his life.”
In his latest mock draft, ESPN’s Todd McShay projects Manziel to be the fourth overall pick.
