      We do have our fair share of assholes but I wouldn't think that there are that "many".

      What he's saying is like...a fact. "I'm born in Greece, I grew up in Greece, I went to a greek school, I speak greek but my ancestors are from Nigeria, my parents tried to instill nigerian traditions in me, language etc". There is nothing to argue against here. You can be more than one "thing" in life. Especially as the world progresses, barriers (in terms of accessibility and language) are not as high as in the past.

      As fasoulaki said, if you've ever had "foreign" parents (I mean foreign to the land they are living at the moment) or if you've been an immigrant yourself or if you have some basic fucking decency and empathy, you can understand completely what he is talking about.

      • I don't understand the point. We all know he is born and raised in Greece of Nigerian parents. It is not unlikely that he would support Nigeria over Greece in a football match. For good fun. I remember Kosta Koufos saying he went to school with a Greek flag when Greece beat the USA in 2006. But pretty sure Koufos loves his country (US) and considers himself an American either way.

        I can't say this for all Nigerian families in Greece, but the Antetokoumpo family and the country of Greece eventually are a win-win. He was born in the right country for his family to prosper in the way that he does. Quite sure he has his complaints as a non documented migrant. But all that matters is that his genetics, upbringing, determination and environment are all the result of his succes and who he is as a person. This can not be denied.
