NBA star Jimmy Butler realised one of his dreams this week after finally getting to meet his footballing idol, Neymar.
Butler has been seen sporting both PSG and Brazil kits over the past few months while showing off his budding soccer skills on social media.
Guys… It happened.

After weeks and weeks of dropped hints, Butler was afforded the chance to travel to Paris and meet up with Neymar as the pair enjoyed a night out in the French capital together.
Indeed, the Minnesota Timberwolves guard also received a special thank you from his new Brazilian friend afterwards.

Butler responded by posting his own photo of the pair together, referring to Neymar as the “G.O.A.T” (greatest of all time) in his accompanying caption.
And with that, a new cross-sport, intercontinental bromance was born.
