He’s back! Kai King has a new team, new city. However, the same love and passion for the game. Kai King formerly of Marler BC, is now a member of acclaimed football club Schalke 04. Kai is well traveled, having played in Equatorial Guinea (Africa), Mexico, Kosovo and again this year in Germany. Kai looks to help the Regionalliga 1 team and Oberliga team move up. The second team has lots of talented players who could truly benefit from the tutelage of an experienced point guard like King. Coach Skiba, is very confident that King will help the team in a variety of different ways. He said, “King is a pass first point guard who makes the players around him better. King will look to help both teams as much as possible.” As usual the guys here at Europrobasket will continue to check on his progress. We here at German Hoops wish him the best this upcoming season. Good luck and auf gehts Kai!!!
