Serge Ibaka’s Halloween Costume: Prince Akeem

Happy Halloween everyone! I wanted to share a cool little story I discovered to commemorate the occasion.

Since Halloween falls on a Thursday this year, most Halloween parties were held this past weekend. Oklahoma City Thunder power forward Serge Ibaka attended one of those parties, and his Halloween costume was truly awesome. He went as Prince Akeem, Eddie Murphy’s character from the classic comedy Coming to America, which happens to be one of my favorite movies. It’s even cooler since I’m an OKC fan.

To top things off, one of Ibaka’s female friends dressed up as Lisa, the love interest of Prince Akeem in the movie.

Finally, here are some of my favorite clips from the film:

And how could we forget the Samuel Jackson cameo?
