Instant Replay: Young Bucks Fan Gives Giannis Antetokoumpo Drawings At Heartwarming Greeting
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.
It’s unknown when this autograph signing took place. Giannis and the Milwaukee Bucks are currently in the middle of the NBA Finals. They have a 3-2 series lead over the Phoenix Suns with Game 6 scheduled for Tuesday, July 20 at 7 p.m. MDT at Fisverv Forum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The game will be televised on ABC. If the Bucks close out the Suns, it will be their first NBA title since 1971.
