Manute Bol’s legacy lives on through his son. The former NBA star, who passed away in 2010 of a skin condition and kidney failure, has a 6’5 son who blocks and passes just like his father.
Manute’s son, named Bol Bol, was recently videotaped at a basketball game during the 2012 Cross Road Elite Camp, and thousands of YouTube viewers saw attributes of his father during the game. Like Manute, Bol Bol blocks well at the net, making it difficult for competitors to score. The tween also works well with his teammates, something that his father was also known for.
Bol Bol lives in Kansas City, Missouri and is only in the sixth grade! At this rate, he may just be the next great NBA superstar like his dad.
