Pero Cameron

Sean Pero MacPherson Cameron (born June 5, 1974 in Tokoroa) is a New Zealand professional basketball player. A 1.98 m (6'6") and 120 kg (265 lb) forward, he is the current team captain of the "Tall Blacks", the New Zealand men's national team and plays for the Gold Coast Blaze in the NBL. Although he has the build of a power forward, he is an effective outside shooter and a good passer, skills more often found in small forwards.

A Māori, Cameron originally played rugby league, but eventually switched to basketball. In 1992, he began playing in New Zealand's National Basketball League. In the NBL, he has been on seven championship teams, made the league's first team seven times, and won the MVP award five times. He has also played professionally in Malaysia, the United Kingdom, for Chester Jets, NZ Breakers, Turkey for Banvitspor and Iran for Mahram BC.

Cameron was first selected for the Tall Blacks in 1994. In 2000, he became co-captain of the side, and was elevated to sole captain by the time of the 2002 FIBA World Championships in Indianapolis. In a tournament filled with NBA players, the Tall Blacks only had one, Sean Marks, who was injured in an early game and missed most of the tournament. The team stunned most basketball observers by finishing fourth in the tournament ahead of the host country, USA. Cameron averaged 14.7 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 3.6 assists in the tournament, and became the only non-NBA player to make the all-tournament team. He was joined on this team by established NBA superstars Dirk Nowitzki and Peja Stojakovic and NBA rookies-to-be Yao Ming and Emanuel Ginobili.

In his return season to the NBL, playing for the Gold Coast Blaze Cameron is having his best year in the NBL averaging 10.9 ppg and shooting at 52.8% from the field.
