MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Bucks, along with MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, are headed to the Eastern Conference Semifinals after a series win against the Chicago Bulls.

Giannis and the Bucks will head to Boston to take on the Celtics for the first two games, then will return home to Milwaukee for games three and four.

To add to the excitement, we asked our viewers if they have ever run into the MVP around Milwaukee during his time here. Many people responded saying they had, and even shared photos.

Our Facebook post got more than 100 comments, many with photos. Here are some of our favorites.

This photo is from Joe Kuffel who said Giannis correctly guessed how tall he is. (Joe is 6'8").
