The Son Of The Tallest Player In NBA History

The Son Of The Tallest Player In NBA History, The late Manute Bol, who was 7-foot-7, has a seventh-grade boy who's supertall and talented. Manute Bol's son looks like his Dad and may be one of America's most promising middle school hoopsters, The late Manute Bol is best known for his incredibly elongated 7-foot-7 frame, a height that made him the tallest player in NBA history. In more recent times he's also earned recognition for his legacy of generous charity work for his native Sudan.

Yet, as pointed out by Prep Rally's brotherly blog Ball Don't Lie, Bol also had a night where he showed he could really stroke the deep ball, connecting on a remarkable six 3-pointers for the 76ers in a game against the Suns. Now, some two years after Bol's death, a new, living legacy for his basketball talent has emerged: Manute Bol's son, Bol Bol. And like his father, Bol Bol is already proving that his game has range that is often belied by his stunning height.

Bol Bol is a seventh-grader in Kansas and already stands a lanky 6-foot-5. As you can see in the video above, the middle schooler already bears a stunning resemblance to his father, too, with extremely long and slender appendages that sometimes seem to be held together by mere rubber bands rather than flesh and bone. Yet, unlike Manute Bol, Bol Bol is already proving that he has an incredibly diverse game at a young age. The seventh-grader can stroke the three. He can handle the ball and distribute behind-the-back passes. And, fittingly, the younger Bol can clean up in the paint when needed, just like his father.
