Matthew Gordon Bullard (born June 5, 1967 in Des Moines, Iowa) is a retired American Basketball player in the NBA, who went undrafted after graduating from the University of Iowa in 1990. He went to Valley High School (West Des Moines, Iowa) in West Des Moines, Iowa.

Bullard played nine seasons with the Houston Rockets (1990-94, 1996-2001) and one season each with both the Atlanta Hawks (1995-96) and the Charlotte Hornets (2001-02). He also played in the 1994-95 season for the Greek League power PAOK. He has career averages of 5.3 points and two rebounds per game. He was known affectionately in Houston as "Air Bullard" in part for his ability to get extreme height on his three-point shots (due to his height at 2.08 m, 6 ft 10 in) and partly as good-natured ribbing about his poor vertical jump, but Bullard was also a fan favorite and an essential part to Houston's first championship in the mid '90s.

In 2004, Bullard lost to Dee Brown (Jacksonville) on the ESPN Reality television program Dream Job (Season 2) in the finals as they competed for a coveted sports analyst position on the sports network. He and Clyde Drexler share color commentating duties for local Houston Rockets game telecasts alongside long-time play-by-play man Bill Worrell.
