Giannis gives kids special moment they'll never forget after Bucks game

NOW: Giannis gives kids special moment they’ll never forget after Bucks game

NEXT:

Even after going down with injury in Thursday's Bucks game, Giannis Antetokounmpo gave young fans an amazing moment they'll never forget.

Sean McFarlane and his two sons, Tyler and Silas, waited more than an hour by the loading docks where players exit, hoping one of them might stop and sign their jerseys.

None did, except Antetokounmpo.

The superstar graciously took everything handed to him, and he even specifically pointed to Silas's jersey and asked to sign it.

"I was happy and excited," the nine-year-old said.

What took the likely NBA MVP only a minute or two stayed with the McFarlanes much longer.

"To me it was just surreal," Tyler, 14, said. "Even like 30 minutes on the way home I still couldn't believe what happened."

Sean says the three of them were screaming the entire car ride.

"It was nice to be able to share that with my two sons," he said.

Don't expect the two signed jerseys to ever go on eBay.

They mean too much.

"I couldn't ask for a better hometown athlete to be on our team because he's amazing," Sean said.

He added that it was also a thrill to see the rest of the Bucks players leave, and he doesn't think any less of them for not stopping.
