Cameron has been a pivotal player for the Tall Blacks since making his debut in 1994, culminating with his selection in the All-Tournament Team at the 2002 FIBA World Championship as the Tall Blacks finished fourth and stunned the world.
While not a quick player, Cameron is strong and knows how to use his body in the low post, and is one of the best passing frontcourt players in world basketball.
While injuries seemed to have caught up with the 36-year-old Cameron, forcing him out of the Australian and New Zealand NBL seasons, his determination to represent his country on the world stage shone through, and he has satisfied coach Vucinic that he is fit enough to take on the world’s best.
There is no one better in Kiwi basketball at making the big shot, and with experience around the globe Cameron will provide guidance to his young team-mates.. Cameron has won seven New Zealand NBL titles and individually earned five Kiwi MVP awards.
He has also played professionally in Malaysia, England, Turkey, Iran and Australia. This NZNBL season he entered the coaching ranks and led the Wellington Saints to the championship.
