LeBron James is a noted Cowboys fan. He grew up in the Cowboys' heyday when they were winning titles in the mid-90's and not, you know, constantly failing to win playoff games. James had wanted the Cowboys to draft Johnny Manziel with their first-round pick. James was in the training room before the Heat's Game 2 vs. Brooklyn when Dallas elected to pass on drafting Johnny Manziel and ... well, he wasn't a fan of that decision.

Manziel was eventually drafted 22nd by the Cleveland Browns, which has to make you feel good about the chances of his success, given their long track record of developing quarterbacks and winning football games.

The Cowboys, meanwhile, will head forward with Tony Romo, who has been signed to an extension.

In unrelated news, Romo attended Game 4 of the Mavericks-Spurs series. The Mavericks surrendered a fourth-quarter lead after cameras showed him, and the Spurs went on to win the series in seven.
