Yeng Guiao pays tribute to his long-time player Mick Pennisi

No other PBA coach knows Mick Pennisi more than Yeng Guiao.

The two spent eight years together at Red Bull from 2000 to 2008 where their partnership produced three championships.

Guiao also tapped the sweet-shooting big man as part of the Powerade Pilipinas national team which he coached in the 2009 FIBA Asia Championship.

As Pennisi decided to retire after 17 seasons, Guiao had nothing but good words for the 6’11” Filipino-Australian.

“There must be a good reason why Mick Pennisi played in the PBA for 17 years. He’s probably one of the few big men who can shoot from the outside. This means Mick is a multi-skilled player,” Guiao told InterAksyon.

“I was even being criticized before for letting Mick shoot a lot from the outside. But that’s just one of the few good facets of his game. If Dirk Nowitzki, a big man in the NBA, can shoot from the outside, why not Mick, who is probably one of the most consistent shooting big men ever?”
