Using a loophole in his Twitter-hiatus, Manziel posted pictures to his Instagram account of his encounter with LeBron James.

"I swear @kingjames is my dude I swear and tell 'em love mydog," Manziel commented along with the pictures.
Another picture posted to the account feature James with some of Manziel's friends, which further confirms that there's not many jobs in the world right now better than being a part of Johnny Football's posse.

Carmelo Anthony was on fire Tuesday night as he scored 50 points in stylish fashion, while leading the Knicks to their 9th win in a row a 102-90 past the Heat. As LeBron James didn’t play due to a strained right hamstring, I’m sure many will question how much stock this performance holds when talking about this match-ups come playoff time. Either way it was fun to watch.

Bravo Melo! Dropping 50 points against any team is an elite and celebratory feat. Critics may want to belittle it because LeBron James nor Dwyane Wade played, but I loved it even more for that exact reason. The sight of James and Wade looking helpless and pissed while Melo went on a shooting spree, on their court...
