Please welcome back Kobe Kara for the 2023 SalsNBL season.
Kobe has been a part of the Hawks since 2021, when he joined the team after his final year at Napier Boys. Kobe’s game has come along in leaps and bounds this season. Making significant changes physically in the off season, has seen him hit the floor running this year. Kobe continues to be a reliable player on both ends of the floor. Not only has he improved physically, but the biggest change has been his mental development. No longer a shy young teenager, Kobe believes in his abilities and proves himself on the floor everyday. Kobe’s attitude and willingness to do all the little things makes him a favourite amongst his team mates.
“Coming back for another year of development. It was an easy call for me to make. He’s put the work in through the off-season and has pushed himself through a very tough preseason. Not only I, but the coaching staff and players have been impressed with what Kobe has shown. I hope he continues to work hard to stay ready”, Everard.
