Mika Vukona

Power Forward

#14

 

 

 

Vukona is the heart and soul of the Breakers, often captaining the team but always leading them. Revered throughout the league and indeed international basketball for his strength, fighting qualities and ability to consistently out muscle and out jump much bigger opponents on the boards. Vukona holds the record for the most appearances (297) and the most consecutive appearances (161) for the club. He at one point did not miss a game for five seasons. He is the winningest Breaker of all time with 170 victories to his credit and is also the club’s all-time leading rebounder (2028). Vukona is an out and out winner though, he has five NBL titles to his name, having a championship win with South Dragons in 2009 to go with his four for the SKYCITY Breakers. Mika is also the current captain of the New Zealand Tall Blacks. Vukona will be aiming up for a big 2016/17 campaign after injury affected his ability to play at 100% fitness in the last campaign, but never once did it stop him giving 100% effort as he led his team to another Grand Final appearance.
