Marks Takes a Bow

Tall Blacks star, Sean Marks, has announced his retirement from NZ basketball, after helping the San Antonio Spurs to victory in the NBA final. “I’ve given it a lot of thought and it was a tough decision to come by,” he says. “I’ve had a great run with the Tall Blacks and I’ve cherished every moment with the guys … they have been some of the best moments of my basketball career.” After attending the University of California Berkeley, Marks became the first NZer to be drafted for the NBA. He has played for the New York Knicks, Toronto Raptors and San Antonio Spurs.
