SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – An 11-year-old Milwaukee Bucks fan got a chance to meet star Giannis Antetokoumpo and gave him some drawings.

It was a heartwarming moment as Antetokounmpo was signing autographs at an event when an 11-year-old girl put her Giannis jersey on the table for him to sign.

As the “Greek Freak” was signing the jersey, the girl showed him a folder she had of drawings she made for the former NBA MVP. According to social media, the girl had been drawing pictures for Giannis for over a year.

After the girl handed the folder over the Antetokounmpo, he started looking at the drawings. He then decided to get out of his chair.

“Let me give you a hug,” Antetokounmpo said.

After he gave her a hug, the girl started getting emotional before posing for a picture.
