Four-time NBA MVP LeBron James is desperate for his friend and former Texas A&M quarterback, Johnny Manziel, to go number one overall in the NFL Draft, but he would also love to see him land in Cleveland.
The selection process will begin Thursday at Radio City Hall, New York, and Manziel is predicted to be chosen in the first round.
The former Heisman Trophy winner has developed a relationship with James in social situations, and it's understood that LeBron believes Johnny will be awesome wherever he goes.
"Obviously with me being a huge supporter and friend of Johnny's, I want him to go number one overall in the NFL Draft," he said after the Heat's demolition of the Nets in the NBA playoffs.
"But if that doesn't happen, wherever he lands he is going to be a heck of a football player for that franchise.
"They are going to get a good one. He's a guy that loves to play the game and he plays at a high level."
James was once the leader of the Cleveland Cavaliers, and he is still held in regard after taking them to the NBA Finals.
These days he is with the Miami Heat but he still has a strong love for Cleveland and its sporting fans.
Manziel may end up in Cleveland just like LeBron did, and James says he would have two brothers in the city he once lived if the Browns pick Manziel.
"If he happens to go to Cleveland then I'll have two family members there, him and Donte Whitner, who went there in the off-season from San Francisco.
"If not, wherever he [Manziel] lands he will be great."
