Standing 7-foot-7, former NBA big man Manute Bol was one of the league’s tallest players ever. Staying down low, blocking shots and protecting the rim was what he did best. But Manute’s son Bol is a completely different player.
We’re not saying he can’t play defense. We’re saying he can do a lot more.

Bol has made a splash at Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana, California. During a game against St Augustine on Saturday, the 7-foot-2 junior performed a between-the-legs dunk during the game.

It’s rare for high school basketball players to execute East Bay dunks during games, but it’s even more unusual for a 7-footer to do one. Normally big men stick to simple but powerful slams, but Bol isn’t afraid to get fancy and show off his athleticism.
