Kylian Mbappé, Neymar and a host of celebrities were in Bercy to attend Friday the first NBA regular season game ever organized in France, between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Charlotte Hornets.
The two PSG stars were accompanied by several teammates, including Mauro Icardi, Thiago Silva and Marquinhos, all installed at the edge of the field. Mbappé praised Tony Parker, who ended his NBA career in Charlotte last year.
Among the other great athletes present, we noted judoka Teddy Riner, decathlete Kevin Mayer, in the front row more than an hour before the match and who did not miss anything of the warm-up, and handball player Daniel Narcisse.
There were also sports leaders like the president of Lyon Jean-Michel Aulas, politicians like the Minister of Sports Roxana Maracineanu and the former Prime Minister Lionel Jospin, great amateur of basketball, and "people" without direct link with sport like Jamel Debbouze or presenter Alexandra Sublet.
