To begin with, Kimble played basketball with Hank Gathers at the Dobbins Technical High School in Philadelphia, where they led the team to the Public League City Championship in 1985, and both were recruited to Southern California University. Concerning his college career, Kimble averaged 12.1 points and 3.6 rebounds in 28 games of the first season. After passing the 1986 – 1987 season without playing, due to the NCAA rules for college – changing students, the couple signed with Loyola Marymount Lions, and Kimble averaged 35.3 points and 7.7 rebounds in his third and final season at LMU, with 122.4 points per game of the team and with 54 points as a personal game record. Kimble left LMU as the fourth highest scorer in college history with 2,010 in 76 games, and an average of 26.4 per game. He also finished third in three-pointers (199) and fifth in steals (175). In 1990, he was named West Coast Conference Player of the Year and in the second All-America team. His number 30 was retired by LMU, and Bo was inducted into the Loyola Marymount Hall of Fame in 2005. The County of Los Angeles has declared the 17th July 1990 the Day of Bo Kimble.

After his successful performance at college, Kimble was drawn the 8th of the 1990 NBA Draft by the Los Angeles Clippers. Despite high expectations Kimble was not a star in the NBA. Injuries, unfavorable coach decisions and last but not least mental problems caused by the processing of Gathers’ death – who collapsed during a game and died later in hospital – contributed to this. After two years in Los Angeles, Kimble was traded to the New York Knicks and became part of one of the best NBA teams, however, in 1993 he left the NBA, and then played in the semi-professional team the Rapid City Thrillers from 1994 to 1995. He was also a member of the Connecticut Pride (1995), La Crosse Bobcats (1996 – 1997) and Yakima Sun Kings (1997 – 1998) of the Continental Basketball Association.

In addition to playing basketball, Kimble portrayed the basketball player Matthew Lockhart in the drama “Heaven is a Playground” (1991), whose characteristic traits and behaviour were very reminiscent of the real Kimble. Then, he has written the book “For You, Hank”, published in 1992, in which he describes both the life and the loss of Gathers, which was also extensively discussed with the smallest details.

Finally, in the personal life of Bo Kimble, he claims to be still single, and there are no contradictory rumours.
