If you’re a Clippers fan, you may see a familiar face on TV this season.
And we don’t mean on the court.
Basketball alumni and perennial NBA defender, Bruce Bowen is joining the broadcast team for the Los Angeles Clippers on Prime Ticket/Fox Sports San Diego.
Bowen, who previously worked at ESPN as an analyst, is perhaps the most famous basketball player to come out of Fullerton. While playing for the Titans from 1989 – 1993, he averaged 11.4 points and 5.8 rebounds a game, where he currently sits at number 12 on the school’s all-time scoring list. His senior year was his most prolific, where he averaged 16.3 points and 6.5 rebounds, earning first team all-conference honors.
Despite going undrafted, Bowen eventually made his way to the NBA and became known as one of the top perimeter defenders in the game. However, it was during his tenure with the San Antonio Spurs from 2001-2009 that Bowen really made his name.
Alongside the names of David Robinson, Tim Duncan and Tony Parker, Bowen became a staple on the Spurs, helping them to win three NBA championships. After it was all-said-and-done, Bowen was also named to the All-NBA Defensive Team eight times and would eventually have his number 12 retired by the team.
We can’t wait to see Bowen commenting on games and rockin’ his signature bow-ties. Also, in already one-game, Bowen has already gotten Fullerton a shout-out.
Good luck on the season, Bruce. #TusksUp
