The first Greek participating in the NBA All-Star Game has not only benefited Greek basketball but the tourism sector too.
Giannis Antetokounmpo was the focus of attention in the recent celebration in New Orleans, where the biggest stars of the NBA gathered and coincided with the high season of Americans’ reservations to European destinations.
