WATCH: Neymar, Jimmy Butler, and Ryan Garcia play poker at Hustler Casino

NBA superstar Jimmy Butler of the Miami Heat, Brazilian football star Neymar Jr., and American boxer Ryan Garcia played poker together at the Hustler Casino in Los Angeles, which was billed as the ‘greatest event in poker history’. The trio of athletes was joined by Twitch streamer Ninja, Chris Eubank Jr., Jon Vlogs, and Dan Bilzerian.

The unexpected combination of the athletes along with Dan Bilzerian and Chris Eubank Jr. was called ‘Legends on the Felt’ with American YouTuber Ninja streaming the poker game live on his channel. Butler sat beside Garcia, who was making his first public appearance since his suspension announcement.

The 25-year-old American boxer has been suspended for one year after his positive test result of the performance-enhancing drug ostarine during his decision win against Devin Haney on April 20, which was later overturned to no-contest due to the doping controversy.

Saudi club Al-Hilal superstar Neymar has been sidelined due to a knee injury in October that he suffered during Brazil’s 2-0 loss to Uruguay in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers. The 32-year-old is recovering from his knee injury in the USA.

On the other hand, 6-time NBA All-Star Jimmy Butler is currently enjoying holidays with the 2024-25 NBA season set to begin in October this year. Butler last played for the Heat during their Play-In loss against the Philadelphia 76ers and sprained his MCL in his right knee and missed the playoffs.
