The God of Basketball, also known as The Basketball Coach King, is a character who debuts in Slam Dunk.
He apparently lives within the moon and rides in a custom designed white flying Cadillac Escalade. He then quickly befriends Mordecai and Rigby, which leads to him offering them to learn how to play basketball. When that plan fails, he uses his powers to instantly grant both of them basketball skills. He momentarily changes sides when he is forced to play with Muscle Man against the duo for the prize of lifetime computer rights after High-Five Ghost fakes being injured. He provides Muscle Man with powers as well to level the playing field with Mordecai and Rigby. He later appears in Exit 9B as a protagonist that Skips summons, in which he helps out to save The Park.
The God of Basketball is extremely tall, being roughly two heads taller than Mordecai, who is over 6 feet tall. He appears to have a basketball for a head with the addition of human parts, such as a mouth, eyes, and nose. He has a dark brown afro, a golden crown, purple sunglasses, dark brown sideburns, and a dark brown beard with a dark brown mustache. He has a white basketball jersey with the number "1" on it. He also has short orange basketball shorts, long white socks, yellow and white basketball shoes, and a long yellow cape. He appears to have a bright yellowish orange glow on the outside of is body.
