LeBron James, in addition to playing basketball, is a BFF of Johnny Manziel’s (plus Manziel is signed to James’ LRMR marketing company), so naturally the King is concerned for the second biggest name in Cleveland.
Earlier this week, Manziel was reportedly seen in Las Vegas disguised in a wig and fake mustache, which no one has staked their name on refuting, because well, it sounds completely possible.
In the wake of the story/fabrication coming out, James shared his thoughts on the situation with USA Today.
“I think it’s more concern for him individually, and I’m not quite sure, I don’t know all the details on it. I really kind of even haven’t been all up on it, but I’ve heard a little bit of it and it’s just a distraction for not only himself but for everyone that’s around him, including family, people that represent him, the people around him,” James said.
“And he’ll figure it out at some point, we all hope.”
In the meantime the Browns are trying to figure out whether or not to bring Manziel back for the 2016 season.
