Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo showed his love for Real Madrid forward Vinicius Junior on Wednesday when the two met after the Bucks’ game against the Brooklyn Nets.
Antetokounmpo, a two-time MVP, gave Vinicius a special gift, giving him the shoes he wore during the game and the jersey he was wearing. He also called Vinicius the “number one” player in Brazil right now.
Vinicius was sitting courtside after the game when Antetokounmpo approached him. The two players exchanged pleasantries and then Antetokounmpo gave Vinicius the gift.
Vinicius was clearly surprised and grateful for the gift. He thanked Antetokounmpo and said that he was a big fan of his.
“It’s an honor to receive this gift from Giannis,” Vinicius said. “He’s one of the best players in the world and I’m a big fan of his.”
Antetokounmpo is a native of Greece, but he has a lot of respect for Brazil and its culture. He said that he was happy to meet Vinicius and that he was a big fan of his game.
“Vinicius is a great player,” Antetokounmpo said. “He’s young and he’s still getting better. He’s going to be a superstar for many years to come.”
Vinicius is a 22-year-old Brazilian forward who plays for Real Madrid. He is one of the most promising young players in the world and has been a key contributor to Real Madrid’s recent success.
