  2. ^ Videoland Hunters are the precursor organization to Taiwan Mobile Clouded Leopards.
  3. ^ dMedia Genies are the precursor organization to Kinmen Kaoliang Liquor.
  4. ^ The SBL Fighter of the Year award is distinct from the MVP award and is not created regularly. It is a rough equivalence to a sportsmanship award and would be given to the player who has won the most Fighter of the Week awards throughout a season when a yearly award is officially created. This has only happened in the 2003-2004 and the 2009-2010 seasons where veteran point guard Chou Chun-San (周俊三) and import forward Jonathan Sanders won the respective awards. The league has never explained the rationale behind its decision to create the Fighter of the Year award in certain seasons but not the others.
