Luca Vildoza paused for more than a few seconds, searching for the right way to say how — or where — he learned to play with the flair that he displayed in just a few short minutes of his NBA debut with the milwaukee bucks at the end of Game 3 in Chicago.

He began playing professionally as a teenager, he said, so there were influences early in his career that instilled such flourishes in his game.

“Just being me,” he said with a smile. “If they want me as I am, they’re gonna accept me.”

In a shade over eight minutes of game play in the Bucks’ blowout win over the Bulls in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs on April 22, the 26-year-old Argentinian had three assists, the last of which was a behind-the-back pass to Thanasis Antetokounmpo that led to a highlight dunk.
