Giannis Antetokounmpo

Milwaukee Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo has always been a fan-favorite because of his entertaining persona. In a matchup against the Indiana Pacers, he was spotted engaging with fans again, this time giving out his gear to kids.

As the Greek Freak walked off the court after a 118-100 victory over the Pacers, he stopped to give a young fan his sneakers. The boy could not contain his excitement as he could not stop smiling. Seeing that the fan was with his sister, Giannis decided to give her his signed jersey before leaving.

The game before at Denver, Giannis also fulfilled a boy's birthday wish. At that moment, he also gave out his sneakers and jersey.

Giannis has always been close to the Bucks fans, who have been nothing but supportive of his career since he stepped foot into the US. After winning the 2021 NBA championship, he drove to a fast food joint with the Larry O'Brien trophy, allowing fans to share in the moment. Few of them had the opportunity to touch the trophy, and take a picture with him before leaving the vicinity.

The 2021 GQ Athlete of the Year is an all-around fun guy who always has a smile on his face when he is not on the floor. Recently, he also learned how to dunk his Oreos in milk, calling it a "game-changer."

In that matchup, Giannis led the Bucks to their seventh consecutive win, registering 26 points, 13 rebounds, 3 assists, and a block. With that victory, the Bucks hold a 13-8 record and are placed 5th in the Eastern Conference standings.

The Bucks will host the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday night before going back on the road to square off against the Toronto Raptors. Although they had a slow start, they have picked up the pace and are winning games even as they are plagued by injuries. There is still no timeline for Brook Lopez's return as well as Donte DiVincenzo, who are both out with back and foot injuries, respectively.
