Manziel Mania: Globetrotters Draft Johnny

ImageEveryone wants a piece of Johnny Manziel. We are only 6 weeks removed from the Cleveland Browns selecting Manziel in the first round of the NFL Draft. Then earlier this month, the San Diego Padres chose Johnny with their 28th MLB Draft pick. Now, the Harlem Globetrotters have ceremoniously drafted Johnny Manziel making him a 3-sport professional athlete. He was drafted along with soccer star Landon Donovan and several others. In a statement from “Sweet Lou” Dunbar, Globetrotters’ director of player personnel,

Johnny Manziel is a fantastic athlete that knows how to be entertaining. ‘Johnny Basketball’ has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? We like to think outside the box with our draft, so we look at all different kinds of athletes that could have the qualities of a Harlem Globetrotter.

Although Johnny hasn’t played competitive basketball since middle school, he isn’t completely unfamiliar with it.
