Neymar, the Brazilian soccer star and friend of Lionel Messi, joined the excitement in Miami by attending Game 3 of the NBA Finals at the Kaseya Center.

Neymar, known for his skills on the soccer field, posed with the prestigious Larry O'Brien trophy, warmed up with Jimmy Butler, and sat courtside alongside fellow soccer star Paul Pogba to watch the Miami Heat take on the Denver Nuggets.

This appearance coincided with Messi's confirmation of his intention to join Inter Miami this summer after his departure from PSG at the end of the season.

Despite the end of their second stint as teammates, Neymar's Instagram tribute to Messi showed no signs of hard feelings between the two.

Neymar expressed his appreciation for their time together, stating, "Brother... it didn't turn out as we thought but we tried everything. It was a pleasure to share two more years with you." In response, Messi referred to Neymar as a "beautiful person."

The star-studded event wasn't limited to Neymar, as other prominent figures like rapper J. Cole, producer DJ Khaled, and Heat legend Dwyane Wade were also in attendance.

Even pop star Shakira, who divorced Neymar and Messi's former Barcelona teammate Gerard Pique last year, was spotted among the crowd.

While the NBA season is still ongoing, Miami seems poised to welcome Messi to the city soon. In anticipation of Messi's arrival, Tyreek Hill of the Miami Dolphins extended a warm welcome to the Argentine star in a video shared on the Dolphins' Twitter account.

Hill humorously mentioned having two No. 10s in the city and jokingly questioned who the faster one might be, but ultimately congratulated Messi on his upcoming move.
