The Chicago Bulls head coach Jim Boylen talked on Rudy Tomjanovich enshrinement to the 2020 Naismith Hall of Fame class.

Boylen was a long-time assistant under Tomjanovich in Houston being a member of the Rockets’ staff from 1992-2003. As he stated, during a conference call with Marc Berman, he couldn’t “figure out why it hadn’t happened yet.”

“It was emotional for me. This is something that’s been on my heart, all of us who have worked for him, for a long time. “We couldn’t figure out why it hadn’t happened yet.”

Tomjanovich led the Rockets to two NBA titles during the 1993/94 and 1994/95 seasons.
