“You should never meet your heroes” is a widely known piece of advice, but it’s safe to say Lily disagrees.
This adorable 11-year-old is a huge basketball fan, especially when it comes to Giannis Antetokounmpo, also known as the Greek Freak. For a year and a half, she worked hard on several art projects, compiling them all into one folder. She did this in hopes of giving it to Antetokounmpo, should they ever meet.
When the big moment finally arrives in a video, you can tell how nervous Lily is feeling. She becomes emotional, but Antetokounmpo knows exactly what to do: He gets up from his chair, walks around the table dividing them, and gives her a big hug.
Watch their unforgettable meeting in the video below, and don’t forget to share this heartwarming story.
