17-year PBA veteran Mick Pennisi retires

Mick Pennisi has decided to hang up his sneakers for good.

The 42-year-old big man has opted to end his 17-year PBA career as he pursues his poultry business overseas.

GlobalPort team manager Bonnie Tan shared Pennisi bid the team goodbye on Friday as he leaves for Thailand to focus on other matters.

“He told us his plans long ago, but we wanted to keep him until the end of this season. He said that it’s been set for a long time now and he can’t back out. We respect his decision,” said the affable team executive.

Pennisi retires with a career average of 7.6 points on 35 percent shooting from three, 5.3 rebounds, and 1.2 assists. – INQUIRER.net
