Everything's coming up Cleveland. First, the Cavaliers traded for Kevin Love, and then LeBron James showed up to Browns practice and chilled with Johnny Manziel. There hasn't been this much drama in Cleveland since Phil Spector had both Tina and Ike Turner induct him into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

A day before the sold-out "Welcome Home LeBron" rally at the University of Akron, James took in Browns practice in Berea, Ohio, accompanied by sons LeBron James Jr. and Bryce Maximus James.

From photos shared on social media, the four-time NBA MVP spent most of his time chatting up Browns players on the sidelines, including fellow No. 23 Joe Haden and Cleveland native Donte Whitner.

While LeBron — a noted Cowboys fan — declined comment to the media, telling reporters, "I'll talk to y'all tomorrow," he posed for pictures with several Browns and their families. He's kind of a big deal there.

Of course, everybody was waiting for the eventual meeting between James and Manziel. The two have developed a friendship over the past couple years, as they are both represented by LRMR marketing agent Maverick Carter. While the two have congratulated each other on their new Cleveland digs on social media, the two haven't been seen together since LeBron was still a member of the Miami Heat.

 Well, unless you count this billboard in Cleveland.

So, when LeBron and Johnny Football finally found the same frame after practice, Twitter exploded.

Never a bad day in the Metropolis of the Western Reserve. That's something people say, right?
