What other sport will draft Johnny Manziel? Today the Harlem Globetrotters announced they drafted both Johnny Manziel and Landon Donovan the US Soccer standout. It is a great way to get some free exposure, I highly doubt Johnny or Landon will be putting on the stars and stripes anytime soon.
“‘Johnny Basketball’ has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?” said “Sweet Lou” Dunbar, the Globetrotters’ director of player personnel, in a press release.
Manziel did play basketball in high school, but he gave it and baseball up to play football at Texas A&M. It’s not known whether he ever pulled any of the on-court hijinks the Globetrotters are famous for.

“We like to think outside the box with our draft,” Dunbar said in the release. “So we look at all different kinds of athletes that could have the qualities of a Harlem Globetrotter.”
