Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James and Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel share a city and a marketing firm. They’ve attended each other’s practices and games.

So, LeBron was asked about Manziel, who reportedly no-showed a team meeting Sunday after going out in Las Vegas the night before while wearing a blonde wig and fake mustache.

“I think it’s more concern for him individually,” James said Wednesday before the Cavaliers’ shootaround in preparation for a road game against the Wizards. “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.

“And he’ll figure it out at some point, we all hope,” James said.

“I don’t go to Vegas much, but when I do, I’m myself,” James said.
