Default Why I love Manute Bol (Please watch)

I used to be an English teacher at a Sudanese school. When I was a child, I used to see Manute Bol as an oddity and nothing more, but he has always been one of my favourite players. I was lucky enough to meet the man in 2004 and he is truly inspiring. Everyone has a cause, some greater than others, but only rarely do you get to see beyond the fascade of the NBA player. Watch this video and enjoy. This man deserves much respect (even if you still consider his ball career as a joke, watch it as a human being).

If Kobe was in a similar situation, I would not give you **** for it, I would give it consideration. Just so happens he isn't that type o' guy. By the way, why are you responding to a non-Kobe thread? Is it because I wrote it?

Great story, I don't know much about him, but he seems to be a great humanitarian.

Nice find. I never realized that Manute, a great philanthropist, had never even heard of the US until the age of eighteen. The culture shock must have been truly unbelievable. With that said, it's absolutely remarkable he was able to have the successful career that he had.
