About Team

ULSAN HYUNDAI MOBIS PHOEBUS

TEAM INTRODUCTION

Ulsan Hyundai MOBIS Phoebus won their first championship in the Korean Basketball League in 1997, and from then on the team’s performance has been nothing short of legendary. Hyundai MOBIS Phoebus owns one of the greatest dynasties in KBL history. Their storied history contains six championships, the most of any KBL team. Five of their six championships, and the only three-peat in KBL history, have come under the helm of legendary head coach, Yoo Jae Hak. In 2018, he also became the first KBL coach to reach 600 career wins.

 

LAST SEASON

After years of dominating the KBL and winning three consecutive championships from 2012-2015, MOBIS has hit a bit of a speed bump. They’re still a top four team in the KBL, but haven’t made it back to the finals since 2016.

 

UPCOMING SEASON

Hyundai MOBIS Phoebus enters their first Asia League competition with their most competitive roster ever.
