David Michaels (박승리) is a professional basketball player who, at 23 years old, was the youngest of the recent mixed Korean players to play in the KBL (Korean Basketball League) when he was drafted by the Seoul SK Knights (서울 SK 나이츠) in 2013. He played three seasons for the Knights from 2013-2016.
David had an exceptional senior season in 2012 at Whitman College when he averaged 20.0 points and earned many accolades including 2012 Northwest Conference Player of the Year and an invitation to the prestigious annual Portsmouth Invitational Tournament where he was the only NCAA Division III player invited that year and the first since 2004.
Upon graduation from Whitman, the 6’7″ forward played professionally in Holland for Aris Leeuwarden before joining the KBL. Although he is not playing professionally at the moment, David hopes to return to the KBL in the near future.
