Mbappé and Neymar Exchange Gifts With Milwaukee Bucks Players After NBA in Paris Game

If you’re a Paris Saint-Germain supporter without a National Basketball Association team to follow, may I suggest the Milwaukee Bucks?

On Friday, the NBA was in Paris for a game between the Bucks and Charlotte Hornets. The Eastern Conference-leading Bucks won the game as expected with several PSG stars in attendance.

After the final whistle, Kylian Mbappé and Neymar Jr. visited the locker room to exchange gifts with some of the Bucks players, including reigning Most Valuable Player Giannis Antetokounmpo.

The exchange between Mbappé and Antetokounmpo was special. Both are Nike athletes and arguably the brightest young talents in their respective sports. It was great to see the respect between the two and how giddy they were to give each other shoes from their signature Nike collections.

Neymar shared a similar reaction to meeting all of the Bucks players. He even went around the room and had them sign a jersey that was gifted to him during the game by the Bucks mascot.

It’s not often we see two of the most valuable footballers in the world reduced to fans like the rest of us and it was great to see the amount of respect they have for NBA athletes.
