A favorite from his youth, the film draws a glaring parallel between Giannis and Prince Akeem, the character portrayed by comedic icon Eddie Murphy. Akeem journeys from the fictional nation of Zamunda to America on a royal quest to find the woman of his dreams and be his future queen. Similarly, Giannis' hoop dreams from the European leagues in Athens, Greece to the greatest stage in the world, the NBA, have made his hopes of international crossover into a reality.
