From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Thomas F. Boerwinkle (b. August 23, 1945 in Cleveland, Ohio) is a retired National Basketball Association center who spent his entire career with the Chicago Bulls.

Boerwinkle was drafted out of the University of Tennessee with the 4th pick of the 1968 NBA Draft and played with the Bulls until 1978. Although largely unappreciated during his playing days, Boerwinkle was a very efficient player, using his brawny seven-foot frame to grab rebounds and set picks while teammates like Jerry Sloan, Chet Walker and Bob Love did most of the scoring. He was regarded as one of the best passing centers in the game with a respectable 3.2 assists per game career average. On January 8, 1970, Boerwinkle set a Bulls record by grabbing 37 rebounds against the Phoenix Suns. He retired with career totals of 4,596 points, 5,745 rebounds, and 2,007 assists.

Boerwinkle later served as a radio color analyst for the Bulls.[1]
