    Tom Boerwinkle, an All-American at Tennessee in the late-‘60s and a 10-year NBA player with the Chicago Bulls has passed away Tuesday after a lengthy illness. He was 67.

    “Tom was a once-in-a-lifetime guy,” former Tennessee teammate Bill Justus said in a statement released by the university. “When you meet a guy like him and have him as a teammate, he becomes a brother to you, and there’s no replacing someone like that.

    “Despite his sheer size and presence, he was as genuine and loyal as can be. That’s not just me saying that; those are the sentiments of many, many of his former teammates. What a gentle giant we’ve lost… one of our best friends.”
