David Thirdkill (born April 12, 1960 in St. Louis, Missouri, USA) is a retired American basketball player who was selected by the Phoenix Suns in the 1st round (15th overall) of the 1982 NBA Draft.[1] A 6 ft 7 in (2.01 m) small forward from the College of Southern Idaho and Bradley University, Thirdkill played in five NBA seasons from 1982 to 1987. Nicknamed "The Sheriff",[1] he played for the Suns, Detroit Pistons, Milwaukee Bucks, San Antonio Spurs and Boston Celtics. He earned a championship ring with the 1985-86 Celtics.

In his NBA career, Thirdkill played in 179 games and scored a total of 510 points.

In 1987, Thirdkill played in a tournament (Open Conference) for the Tanduay team in the Philippine Basketball Association and won the championship aside from being named "Best Import" of the conference. He returned for another conference in 1988, this time for the newly formed Purefoods team, which he led to another finals appearance. Thereafter, he played in Italy for Virtus Roma, in France for Chorale Roanne Basket and most notably in Israel for a spell of five years, finally retiring in 1996.
