Could Mobis Phoebus be the best KBL team of all time?

Ulsan Hyundai Mobis Phoebus is en route to become the best team in Korean Basketball League (KBL) history.

By defeating Changwon LG Sakers 83-67 on Wednesday, the Phoebus picked up its 23rd win of the season. The victory against the Sakers was a lot more impressive as the team was missing starters Yang Dong-geun and Lee Dae-sung.

Currently, the Phoebus has a dominant lead in the KBL, a good 7.5 games ahead of runner-up Busan KT Sonic Boom. As of Thursday, the Phoebus has a seasonal record of 23 wins and four losses with a .852 winning percentage.

If the Phoebus extends its lead by one more game ahead of the Sonicboom, it’ll set a new record in terms of game difference. Not only that, the Phoebus is on track to set a new league record in the most number of wins. The current record is 44.

“It’s good to set records,” said Yoo Jae-hak, head coach of the Phoebus. “The players who set records are amazing. Once we start thinking about the records, we get stiff in our shoulders and get pressure, so I don’t talk about the records with the players.”
