Bol Bol was born in Sudan the first born child of the legendary NBA player Manute Bol who played in the NBA in the 90's era. His name came from his great grand father, that is leader of native tribe in South Sudan.
That his father actually said that their family came from a tribe in Sudan that his ancestors are leaders of the tribe there that have a height of 6 foot 7 inches which they got their height from.
In 1998, there have been like a civil war in their country, and Manute Bol that time retired in the NBA, that actually a used of being a spy of the United States from their government. And so that their family escaped from Sudan. In 2001 their family arrived in America and that time they lived in political refugees compound in Connecticut. When Bol Bol turns 4 years old that is the time his father Manute introduce the game of basketball to him, but that time he really do not have interest on the game. When Bol Bol turns 7 years old they transferred to Kansas, when he reached the age of 12 years old his height is already 6 foot 7 inches that on that time he had already a big interest on the basketball ball game because of his father. When he entered high school he became a varsity but every year he was transferring from one team to another that it seems like his looking something. When he was playing in. Blue Valley High as a freshmen his height is 6'10, but because he was not living in the area where the School was located he is not eligible to play with the basketball team. So he transfered Bishop High School where he actually continued his freshmen year in High School, where in 2014 he played in the team A of the School where his potential on shot blocking and his shooting ability. Only on his freshmen year he has already received an offer from College Schols like Oklahoma and Kansas and wins a Championship in his team on his sophomore year. On 2016 he transfer on Mater Dei High School where he faced the Ball brother who is playing on Chinno Hills that at that time is the defending Champions in that he game he scored 14 points and 14 rebounds. They also managed to reached the State Tournament but was lost in the Title Game that because of that slot of Schools has been more interested in him.
On his senior year in high school, he once again transferred school in Finlay Prep that many NBA player have played before, here averaged 20 points, 8 rebounds and 2 blocks per game that he was standing already 7 foot 2 inches that time.
He choose the University of Oregon to play in college ball, in his 1 year stint with the team he only managed to play 9 games because he got a fractured on his foot that needs a long time to heal. In that 9 games he averaged 21 points, 9 rebounds and 2 blocks per game. But what really more interesting on this kid is his percentages on his 3 point shooting where he averaged 52 percent that is more high than the shooters on the NBA. And it is not only just one or tow attempts, in his 9 games he had a total of 25 attempts that he had more than 2 tries per game that we could safe to say that he is a volume shooter on 3 points shooting for a player who played center position.
On the 2019 NBA draft Bol Bol declared his availability and was considered to be lock as a top 10 pick of the class, that was before he suffered a fracture on his foot and because of that he was picked in the 2nd round and has dropped as the 44th pick overall of the 2019 NBA draft by the Miami Heat but later been traded to the Denver Nuggets.
It was a blessings in disguise for the Nuggets as they land Bol Bol in his team as when Bol Bol saw played in the NBA bubble he shows his ability as he scored 16 points and 10 rebound ms versus the Wizards that for me I think if given a lot more playing time he will become an NBA All Star so let's wait and see for the career of Bol Bol.
