Giannis Antetokounmpo in Greek ad for chocolate milk (VIDEO)

May 11, 2014, 12:34 PM EST

Giannis Antetokounmpo‘s rise to fame is just beginning.

Drafted purely on potential and expected to be brought along slowly, the fact the Bucks were terrible this past season meant he got to learn on the job — and basketball fanatics had their new favorite underground star to watch. The “Greek freak” is just 19, so very raw but makes some plays that portend greatness. He has thleticism end to end that just can’t be taught.

He is going to be a star in America.

He’s already becoming one in Greece — he’s got a chocolate milk ad. Called “I Believe.” Beyond that… I don’t speak any Greek.

But I know great plays when I see them.
