The Busan KT Sonicboom is a professional basketball team based in Busan, South Korea. The team is a member of the Korean Basketball League. They play at the Sajik Arena which is affectionately nicknamed "The house that Jasper built" after ex-Boom legend, Jasper Johnson.[1] The teams biggest rivals are the LG Sakers, from neighbouring city Changwon and matches between these two are always fiercely fought affairs. They have produced some classics in recent years including a famous victory in Changwon in the 2008/2009 season when Jasper Johnson won the match with a 3 pointer in the final second, writing himself into the club's folklore.
