The Korean Basketball League’s 2014/15 season kicks off this weekend with the KT Sonic Boom opening their season versus Anyang KGC at 2 p.m. at Sajik Gymnasium. The Boom also host Incheon ET Land on Sunday as part of their back-to-back home game weekend at 2 p.m.
KT looks to improve from last year’s 6th place finish, where they ended up 27-27 on the year.
With the return of fan favorite Charles Rhodes, new import Marcus Lewis, sharp shooter Cho Sung-min and point guard Tony Akins, KT is looking to add more balance offensively and on the defensive side of the ball, where KT finished ranked 5th in both categories last season.
KT starts their season with four games in the first week, with two road games after their home stand versus LG in Changwon on Wednesday before moving to Wonju to take on Dongmu Promy Friday evening.
