As you might’ve guessed, Bol Bol is the son of Manute Bol, the 7’7 Sudanese center who had a solid career playing in the NBA. Bol Bol stands 7’2 himself, but unlike his dad, plays the game more like a wing, preferring to to shoot the ball and play on the perimeter. And therein lies the greatest irony: for a guy his size, he’s almost allergic to playing down low or getting physical with anyone.
It’s going to take a lot of polishing and cajoling for him to really capitalize on the “Unicorn” skill set everyone sees in him. Plus, already suffering from season-ending injuries to his lower-body can’t bode well for his future in the NBA.
