Thanks to the Milwaukee Bucks and the Make-A-Wish Foundation, a 15-year-old Greek boy's dream has come true.

Dimitris Zamanis flew from Greece to Milwaukee to meet his favorite player Giannis Antetokounmpo.

"I don't know today is the best day of my life I always wanted to me Giannis it was great shooting with him and tony and all the guys," Dimitris said.

Haroula Zamanis , Dimitris' mother, wants her son to enjoy the moment and not think about what he has to battle, which is a rare blood disorder. The disorder kept him in the hospital for an entire year, where he had to do his homework from the hospital beds.

"I was emotional I was about to cry his dream came true he loves and admires Giannis," Zamanis said.

"It 's been a difficult year for me and in the beginning, I didn't want to wish for something from Make-A-Wish. I didn't want to wish something," Dimitris said.

Thankfully, Dimitris made his wish and got to meet the Bucks star.
