Manute Bol was one of the tallest NBA players in NBA history. At 7’7 Bol was talented on the defensive end of the ball. In 1986 he was named to the NBA All Defensive Second Team. Although Bol has passed away, his son Bol Bol carries on his father legacy.
If I told you a seventh grader was 6’5, could handle the ball and shoot the three, would you believe me? Trust me, I wouldn’t believe it if I didn’t see it with my own eyes. On YouTube Bol Bol has become a phenom. He has over one million views of people checking out his game.
Surprisingly, Bol Bol is not known for inside game but his outside game. Unlike his father, this young talent has a incredibly diverse game. The seventh grader can shoot with some of the best middle schoolers in the country, can play inside and block shots when needed.
Bol Bol plays middle school ball in Kansas and already has caught scouts attention. At the Crossroads Elite tournament, Bol Bol was talk of the tournament. He completely dominated his competitors on the interior and the outside.
Although there is a lot of high expectations for this young star, some critics say that he needs to work on his body. Many truly believe if Bol Bol can develop a solid frame, it will take him to the next level. It is scary to think that Bol Bol still has room to grow. Already at 6’5, the Kansas native can still get lengthier and taller. I believe the sky is the limit for Bol Bol.
