Neymar, David Beckham meet in Miami
It’s not often that Miami Heat and NBA superstar LeBron James is upstaged in his own building, but Tuesday night certainly offered a challenge to the king’s throne.
With David Beckham in town, presumably doing MLS expansion things, and Barcelona and Brazil star Neymar taking his talents to South Beach ahead of the Selecao’s friendly with Honduras at Sun Life Stadium on Saturday, the American Airlines Arena was overflowing with international stardom.
Neymar took the time to pose with Beckham and David Luiz for a photo and also did a TV interview during the Heat’s 118-95 demolition of the Milwaukee Bucks, as he claimed (through a translator, while LeBron sank a jumper) that it was a dream come true to watch the Heat play live.
Chances are, Neymar’s greater dream will be lifting the World Cup trophy on his home soil this coming summer, much like he did with the Confederations Cup trophy this past June.
