Steph Curry exchanges jerseys with Neymar Jr. after Game 2

Last night, the Cleveland Cavaliers suffered a pulverizing 110-77 loss to the Golden State Warriors. After this glorifying win for Stephen Curry and his team, the 6′ 3″ point guard decided to show some love to a fan who is a prodigy in his own sport.

Neymar Jr., captain of the Brazilian national soccer team and player for FC Barcelona, was seen at the end of Game 2 trading jerseys with Curry. With a 33-point win like that, Curry seemed more than happy to swap his No. 30 to a dedicated fan and fellow all-world athlete.

“It’s the first time we’ve met,” said¬†Curry in a report. “Obviously a star in the soccer world, and such skill and kind of grace when he’s out there on the field, so he’s fun to watch.”

Curry certainly put on a show for Neymar as well. Last night, Curry had his highest field goal percentage of the playoffs so far, shooting 7-11 for 18 points total (.636). The last time Curry shot above 60 percent was against the Rockets in the Game 1 conference quarterfinals, where he went 8-13 for 24 points (.615).

“It’s pretty cool to know we’ve got fans all over and obviously it’s inspiring what he does on the soccer field,” said¬†Curry.

If the Warriors can continue this dominating style of play against the Cavaliers, maybe Curry and other elated Golden State stars will swap out more jerseys with other sports icons.
