Biography

Bruce Bolden (born November 30, 1963) is an American former professional basketball player. He played 17 years in the National Basketball League (NBL) in Australia. He won an NBL championship with the South East Melbourne Magic in 1992, when he was named the NBL Grand Final Most Valuable Player (MVP). He led the league in rebounding in 1993, and he was also named the NBL Best Sixth Man in 1999. His final season was played in the Australian Basketball Association with the Albury Wodonga Bandits in 2003–04. His No. 32 was the first jersey to ever be retired by the West Sydney Razorbacks.

After retiring as a player, Bolden started MyHoops, a basketball coaching service in Australia for young players from 7 to 18 years old.

Bruce often appears as a guest on the Aussie Hoopla podcast where he provides his thoughts on how players can make it to an elite level and his views on basketball in Australia.

Jonah was drafted in the second round with the 36th pick in the 2017 NBA Draft by the Philadelphia 76ers.
