The team was formed in 2008, when the Bayer company decided to dramatically decrease its sponsorship for its Bayer Giants Leverkusen. As a result, the Bayer Giants went down to Germany's Regional 1 (4th division) to restructure. The license for the Basketball Bundesliga was transferred to Düsseldorf. The tourism investment of Ozaltin Group, Gloria Hotels & Resorts became the main sponsor of Germany Beko Basketball League’s entrenched team Duesseldorf Giants. The name of the team was changed to " Gloria Giants " for the 2010-11 season. They ended on the 17th place in the 2009–10 season and relegated from the Bundesliga, but Gloria Hotels & Resorts invested more money in the club to get an immediate return to the first tier with a wild-card. The following season the team relegated again. In 2012 the club name was changed to Düsseldorf Baskets. After the 2012/2013 season the license of the team for playing in the second tier league in 2013/2014 was revoked by the league. Due to that the team did not take part in any competition in the 2013/2014 season. In March 2014 the team filed for bankruptcy.
