The word "hero" has been thrown around a lot since the 90's for various people, and it's often used erroneously. But Manute was a true hero.

"I'll tell you this -- if everyone in the world was a Manute Bol, it's a world I'd want to live in." - Charles Barkley

RIP, Big Man.

Always the "Good" that always die young.

And Chuck's quote made me shed a tear.

Anyone remember the shot Larry Bird took over Manute Bol? Bird shot for the rafters of Boston Garden just to get the ball over his out stretched arms and made the shot! Nothing but net!

About the 1:50 mark. It's hard to tell.


RIP Manute Huge humanitarian!

So sad. I remeber when I got hooked on NBA, my dad mention few times about Bol with being one of the tallest player there was at that time. He may not be the best there was, but he always try to make a difference off the field with charities & his humitrian. What a classy guy.

R.I.P. Mr. Bol

Damn!! That was simply you rarely see in the old days. Kinda freakish to see how Bol's knees look there. Glad it never gave out on him with how being big or tall can have an effects on your knees.
