I promise you aren’t going to see a whole bunch of seventh grade basketball highlight videos here on TBJ, but I also promise you that when a 7-foot-7 NBA legend (RIP) has a 6-foot-5 son in seventh grade who is good enough to have a basketball highlight video you will see it. That’s the case here as Manute Bol’s son, Bol Bol, is apparently also giant and also good at basketball.

No telling if he’ll someday break his father’s record as tallest guy to ever hit six threes in a game, but if there’s anyone who has a chance it’s his offspring. Can’t wait to give him the nickname Bol “Bol” Bol in 2019. Shoutout to Ajou Ajou Deng and Duany Duany.

  1. Oddly enough, Hedo named him.

  2. Bol Bol and Thon Maker. With any luck 2020 will be a golden age for the names of NBA centers.

  3. Kid needs to hit the gym

  4. TK how did you pass up the Bolin’ pun? I come to tbj for the bad puns dammit.

  5. Don’t forget Ruben Boumjte-Boumjte.

  6. I want to point out that in HS during a very ridiculous switch, I ended up being guarded by Manute’s nephew. He wasn’t any good, and I had no common sense. So I had it in my mind that I was going to try to dunk on him. I was only going to play like 8-10 minutes in this game anyway, so on the switch I got the ball at the top of the key and in my mind I had a great idea of just how awesome it was going to look.

    What happened was that I ended up getting blocked twice by Manute’s nephew in the same play. Once by his shoulder, and a second time by his hand as he swatted my dunk attempt away without jumping. All of this happened in one continuous motion as at my apex I couldn’t get the ball high enough, and let’s face it, I’m a guard. There was no way this was going to work out.

    My team won the game. But he won the war. If the opportunity arose, I’d love to re-create this moment for charity now that he and I are both in our 30s. If you guys can track down Manute’s nephew who played HS ball in Ontario in the 90′s let’s make this happen.

  7. That last line got me chuckling! Maybe he could start his own podcast ‘The Basketbol Jones’

  8. What a frame. What a name.
