Kurt Thomas to play in 1,000th NBA game tonight

When TCU alum Kurt Thomas jumps tip as the starting center for the Chicago Bulls tonight (in place of the injured Joakim Noah), he'll become the 96th player in NBA history to play in 1,000 career games.

The 38 year-old, who led the nation in both scoring and rebounding for the Frogs in 1994-95, is now playing for his 8th NBA team (can you name all eight...without looking at wikipedia?) and probably desperately wants another TCU player to make it to the league so that he can finally retire.

He lead in ejections too, right? He was hot-headed, but fun to watch

16 years later, we have only had one player since Kurt that was NBA worthy.

I assume you do not mean Art Pierce?

Lee Nailon was the only player since to make the NBA.

I guess Neal Dougherty, Jr. never made it.

Man, Neil Dougherty Jr. was a clown. The fact that that kid even stepped foot on the court is joke.
