MILWAUKEE — Following the Bucks' victory over the Charlotte Hornets Saturday night, Giannis Antetokounmpo gifted a teen his post-game shoes, as seen in a video in a Milwaukee Bucks Facebook post.

The Journal Sentinel identified the 17-year-old as Hunter Peterson, a senior at Nicolet High school with Down Synrome.

The game-winning shoes were gifted following Milwaukee's 11th straight win . The game ended in a 137-96 victory, with Giannis scoring 26 points.

This isn't Giannis' first give away. In April Giannis gave his sweatshirt to Jacarrie Kicks4Kids, a nonprofit organization that is determined to "change the word two feet at a time."

The Bucks host the New York Knicks Monday at 7 p.m.
