James H. "Jumpin Jimmy" Washington (born July 1, 1943) is a former professional basketball player. A 6'6" forward born in Philadelphia and from Villanova University, he was selected by the St. Louis Hawks with the 6th pick of the 1965 NBA Draft. After one year with the Hawks, he joined the Chicago Bulls, where he became a fan favorite as the first Bull to average more than ten rebounds per game. In 1967–1968, he averaged 12.5 points and 10.1 rebounds; the following season, he averaged 14 points and 10.6 rebounds. Washington would also play for the Philadelphia 76ers, Atlanta Hawks (a later incarnation of the St. Louis Hawks), and the Buffalo Braves and retired with 6,637 career rebounds. Although Jimmy is listed as 6'6" he is actually 6'7". His Chicago Bulls coach, Johnny Kerr listed him as 6'6" to claim him as the shortest center in the league.
