Neymar Jr has always shown his love for basketball and all the stars we see in the NBA. He is very good friends with two-time NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, as they showed when Paris Saint-Germain received Milwaukee Bucks in Paris last year.
The Brazilian superstar is currently sidelined after picking an injury in prior weeks, but he’s not missing time trying to get back to the field. In the meantime, he’s showing the fans how he’s spent time in recent weeks, surprising a lot of people with his newest Instagram post.
The 29-year-old took to IG to share a big post about his in-home basketball court featuring some of the biggest names in NBA history. He took things to the next level, creating a great mural to celebrate greatness.
Neymar Jr unveils incredible custom basketball court
The Champions League winner revealed the art, made by artist Kobrastreerart, showing a series of players that surely inspire the Brazilian. Jimmy Butler, Stephen Curry, LeBron James, Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Scottie Pippen, and Draymond Green are all featured in this big piece of art.
Soccer and NBA fans reacted to the mural, with some wondering why Green and Butler were there instead of bigger names and others praising the job that the artist did to create this incredible painting. Although he didn’t put Giannis there, he selected another of his friends, Jimmy Butler, who is very close to the Brazilian.
As long as you have Jordan, Kobe, and LeBron James, the rest can be filled out by any other player. Neymar paid respect to his favorite stars and he nailed it; the design and the final product are great and he should be happy to see that mural every day he’s at home.
