Bruce E. Bowen Jr., born June 14, 1971 played small forward and graduated from Edison High School and Cal State Fullerton. He went on to play for the NBA's Miami Heat, the Boston Celtics, the Philadelphia 76ers, the San Antonio Spurs and the CBA's Rockford Lightning, and also played abroad in France.

One of the most feared perimeter "lockdown" defenders in NBA history, Bowen was elected eight times to the NBA All-Defensive First and Second Teams, and was a member of the Spurs teams that won the NBA championships in 2003, 2005 and 2007. Off the court, Bowen became an informal ambassador for child obesity awareness. He currently works as an analyst for ESPN.
