He played ball at Dunbar High for a portion of his high school career and then later transferred to Boys Latin High School, where he helped win their first Championship in 1980. Michael Thompson also played professional basketball for a total of 14 years in New England, ABA, CBA, and briefly in the NBA with the Cavaliers in 1982.

Michael Thompson accomplished many goals and now wants to carry his knowledge of the game from his previous professional years to help the Bucks reach their future goals.
In Michael Thompson’s words, “Coming from the streets of Baltimore, we had to play hard to get to where we needed to be. I had the opportunity to reach my dream in playing professional basketball and now I want to coach and mentor players to do the same”
In regards of the DMV Bucks family, we greatly appreciate the opportunity and experience to learn from Coach Thompson. We look forward to a great upcoming season with him and Coach Scott!
