For more than a year, 15-year old Dimitris Zamanis pass…

For more than a year, 15-year old Dimitris Zamanis passed the hours in the hospital in his home country of Greece watching NBA games, especially the Milwaukee Bucks and his national hero, Giannis Antetokounmpo. The toll from aplastic anemia, a condition where the body stops producing enough red blood cells, left Zamanis tired and even took him away from playing the game of basketball that he loves so much. But on Tuesday afternoon, Zamanis was in Milwaukee, sinking his own shots right next to the Greek Freak himself. The once-in-a-lifetime alliance was provided by Make-A-Wish Wisconsin, which teamed up with the Bucks to fly Zamanis, his brother and his mother, Haroula, from their home in Trikala, Greece, to Milwaukee to meet Antetokounmpo and see him play in person. And Giannis was the gracious and charming host.
