Neymar Says Michael Jordan Inspired Him to be Great

Soccer superstar Neymar says he has Michael Jordan to thank for inspiring him to achieve greatness -- saying even when he was a kid, he wanted to be like Mike. 

Of course, Neymar happens to be a Jordan Brand athlete -- but he sat down to talk about #23 and gushed about his first pair of Jordans and how they impacted his life. 

Neymar says he's always been impressed with MJ's work ethic -- and has tried to apply it to his own life.  

He's also holding the first pair of Jordan soccer cleats -- and we gotta say, they're pretty sick.
