Team Profiles

The franchise was born in 1997, along with the beginning of KBL. Samsung originated in Suwon, but later moved to Seoul for bigger market share. At present, it is known as “Seoul Samsung Thunders Basketball Team”, which is the most distinguished and traditional team in the history of KBL. Samsung got 2 champions (2000-2001, 2005-2006) and 2 straight times runner-up (2007-2009). In this coming season, the team will challenge for its third title in good shape. As former European league player “Eric Sandrin” is addressed, the team is built more upon 2yrs experiences of championship.
