Giant Legend returns to TCentre

Mike Pero Nelson Giant legend, Mika Vukona, has returned to his old home court at the TCentre where number 14 will be adding his considerable skills and knowledge in an assistant coach/mentor role on and off the court.  After having a break to refresh from leading the NZ Tall Blacks at the Commonwealth Games, Mika has returned as part of developing the young 2018 Giants side.  Something he will know about as Mika first pulled on a Giants uniform back in 2000 and carved out a mighty career since then.  This Saturday the Nelson Giants fans will get a chance to get behind the top of the table Giants when they take on the high flying Hawks Bay Hawks, another team at the top of the Sals NBL leader board.
