PSG’s Neymar reacts to Malik Monk’s insane block during Hornets-Bucks
Brazilian superstar Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar attended Friday afternoon’s Charlotte Hornets matchup with the Milwaukee Bucks in Paris, France. With the NBA on foreign soil displaying hoops around the world, the Hornets and Bucks traveled to Europe for a regular-season game, which featured third-year Charlotte guard Malik Monk blocking Milwaukee’s Turkish forward Ersan Ilyasova—with Neymar looking on intently.

Earlier this week, the Bucks had the opportunity to scrimmage and dribble a soccer ball on PSG’s pitch at the Parc des Princes as part of their trip to Paris. Now it’s Neymar and friends’ opportunity to sit on the sidelines for NBA basketball. They were able to watch an impressive block by Monk, who has been speculated as a trade target by the deadline in two weeks recently.
Normally some of the athletes on the hardwood would be the height of goalkeepers in European soccer leagues, but Neymar can only watch them block basketballs this time.
