Kirk Penney is a favourite son of the North Shore and one of the country’s all-time great players, one of just three to appear in the NBA during his storied career that has taken him to the highs of the NBL (winning the Championship with the Breakers in 2011), the top leagues of Europe and of course those looks at the NBA. Penney’s name adorns the club honours board many times from his first stint from 2007 to 2011 and he has lost none of his scoring touch, finishing second in league scoring when playing for Illawarra in 2015/16. Highlights in a long career include playing on the famous 2002 Tall Blacks team that finished 4th at the World Championships and finishing as the tournament’s second highest scorer at the 2010 FIBA World Championships (24.7 ppg). The shooting guard now looks to repeat past success as he returns home to the SKYCITY Breakers on a three year deal.
