Manute Bol is gone

RIP

Wow

RIP

I'm really sad


I remember watching a documentary on Manute Bol

He sent ALL his money to his family in Soudan

He was broke and sick; Chis Mullin and Bol's old college teammates helped him a lot


He was a GREAT person


**** you Kobme, **** you Lebron, **** you Wade

That's a real bummer. He was a great humanitarian and one of my favorite players.

^ I guess when you're already that tall you don't have to jump that high.

I always forget Manute Bol is dead. I just remembered it again a few months ago and it always comes as a surprise.

His son looks just like him, though not as skinny (yet). And his long arms make his shooting style strange looking, like awkward even though it is not.

Didn't he sign a one-day contract with a hockey team or something close to that?

Sat next to him on a Southwest flight from St. Louis to Chicago some years back. He had to sit in the seats that faced one another obviously for the leg room. What surprised me was he had basically busted out of the shoes he was wearing, from the sides. Coworker tried to engage him but he wasn't very talkative.
