North Omaha, Nebraska, Boone stood 6'2" and weighed 175 pounds.
After college, at
Idaho State University, he played for the Utah Starsteam, which had relocated from Los Angeles, Californiato Utah. He was also on their championship team in the 1971 ABA Finals. After the merger of the ABA with the NBA he had limited success. In Terry Pluto's collection of the oral history of the ABA, "Loose Balls", interviewees noted that Boone's nickname was "The Legend," because he always showed up each season in shape and always was remarkably consistent. At the time of his retirement, Boone had the distinction of having played the most consecutive games of any player of the ABA and NBA with 1,041 between both leagues.citation | title = Jazz Waive Boone, Ending His Streak of 1,041 Games | newspaper= The New York Times| year=2007 |date = January 27, 1981 | url=http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9E02E1DF123BF934A15752C0A967948260] This record has since been broken by A.
