Kim Bokamper (born 1954) is a former American Football Linebacker and Defensive End who played his entire nine-year career with the National Football League Miami Dolphins from 1977 to 1985.

Bokamper was drafted in the first round of the 1976 NFL Draft by the Dolphins after playing college football at San Jose State University. He was a member of the Dolphin's Killer B's defense of the early 1980s and was a one time Pro Bowler in 1979.

Bokamper started at right defensive end for the Dolphins in Super Bowl XVII and Super Bowl XIX. Against the Washington Redskins in Super Bowl XVII, he was involved in a famous play, in which he deflected a pass attempt from Redskins quarterback Joe Theismann, and nearly intercepted the deflected pass in the end zone, for a touchdown. Unfortunately for Bokamper and the Dolphins, Theismann was able to knock the ball away from Bokamper, preventing the interception.

After retirement Bokamper became a broadcaster at WFOR-TV in Miami.

Bokamper can be heard on South Florida's "Paul and Young Ron Show" on WBGG-Miami anytime NFL news breaks. Bokamper was also part of the morning team on WQAM-AM along with Kenny Walker. In 2008, he hosted the weeknight "Dolphins Tonight" show on WQAM and opened a sports bar in Plantation, Florida called "Bokamper's Sports Bar & Grill". He now opened a new "Bokamper's Sports Bar & Grill" in Miramar, FL.
