The retooled Ryukyu Golden Kings have reshaped their team with a savvy formula that combines speed, finesse and power and the vital contributions of newcomers.

Sharpshooter Takatoshi Furukawa, for instance, starred for the title-winning Tochigi Brex last season, and was the high scorer (15 points) for the Kings in Sunday’s 74-55 shellacking of the host Yokohama B-Corsairs. Ira Brown, who notched a double-double (14 points, 10 boards), was a key player for the Sunrockers Shibuya in the 2016-17 campaign.
