In 1996, Thurmond was voted as one of the best 50 players in NBA history and is considered among the most-dominating centers in the game.

The 6-foot, 11-inch Thurmond spent almost 40 years playing and working for the Warriors. He played 11 of his 14 seasons with the Warriors, and then worked as a community liaison and broadcast analyst. He holds the franchise’s record for rebounds and minutes played.

He was a seven-time all-star.

The Warriors retired his number 42 in 1978.

The Warriors drafted Thurmond out of Bowling Green with the third overall pick in 1963.
