LeBron James says Johnny Manziel is "part of our family."
Manziel attended Game 1 of the Cleveland Cavaliers' playoff series against the Celtics as a guest of James and his business associates. The Cleveland Browns quarterback sat next to James' longtime friend and partner Maverick Carter.
Carter's management firm, LRMR, represents both James and Manziel.
James and Manziel's friendship began before either of them arrived in Cleveland. Manziel signed with Carter before being drafted by the Browns in the first round of the 2014 draft. James announced his return to Cleveland that July.
Manziel struggled in his first NFL season, playing in five games and completing 51.4 percent of his passes for no touchdowns and two interceptions.
