Ricardo Ratliffe captured his third KBL title with the Mobis Phoebus last week. Winning this title makes him a three time champion in three years winning back to back to back KBL Championships. Ricardo is the first non-Korean player who has won the championship three times in the KBL.

The Mobis Phoebus swept the championship series in four games versus Wonju Dongbu Promy. In the series, Ricardo averaged 14 points and 8.5 rebound and was a key component in his team’s success.

Ricardo finished his third season for the Mobis averaging 20 points and 10 rebounds a game, his first time averaging a double-double for the season playing professionally and leading his team in points per game for the entire year.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to play in Korea and to help my team win three championships” shared Ricardo. “This playoff run was even more special because my mom was here to be apart of it and because my daughter was also born this month” Ricardo said.

Due to KBL rules, which prohibit a non Korean player from playing with the same team for more than three consecutive seasons, this will be the last year that Ricardo will be able to play for the Mobis Phoebus.  He has accomplished many accolades in his first three years as an import for the Mobis, leading the league in rebounds twice and blocks three times. He has been named Player of the Week more than twenty times and was able to win the Williams Jones Cup for South Korea this past summer.

Ricardo was drafted first in the KBL draft in 2012, by the Mobis. On playing in Korea, Ricardo says, “it's been great! I love playing in Korea, I have so many fans here whom I love. Having the opportunity to start my professional career here has been a great experience. I look forward to the future and continuing to play professionally.”
