Manute Bol May Have Played In The NBA At This Insane Age

  • Family members- including son Bol Bol center who was 10 years old and already 5-foot-10 at the time- comfort one another following the funeral for former NBA player and humanitarian for South Sudan Manute Bol at the National Cathedral

He said Bol "didn't know how old he was" at the time, which made it easy for Mackey to simply make up an age up for him. Bol went on to be drafted by the Washington Bullets with the 31st pick of the 1985 NBA Draft and led the NBA in blocks twice over his 10-year NBA career.

However, his claim that Bol could have possibly been as old as 50 when he was playing the National Basketball Association sounds like an exaggeration. The 7-1 Bol is one of the top players in the class of 2018, and picked OR over powerhouse schools like Kentucky.

"It was in October, I wanted to make it after September 1", Mackey said. Because according to Mackey, he was more than likely 35 years old when he played college basketball, not 19 as Mackey had listed him at. "I wanted to make sure he was young enough because he didn't have an age". I think he was [in his 40s], I really do.

Bol died in 2010 at the supposed age of 47, but according to the former Cleveland State coach, the man from Sudan could have been that old while he was still in the league. Kevin Mackey, the college basketball coach who brought Bol from the Sudan to the U.S.in the 1980s, told Adam Zagoria of ZagsBlog that he made up Bol's birthday upon flying him to the country for a recruiting visit.

"The immigration people were in the office [at Cleveland State] and they thought it was great", Mackey said.

While Bol never got the chance to play for Cleveland State, he did play for the University of Bridgeport and was picked up by the Washington Bullets in the 1985 Draft. Later he developed an affinity for the three-point shot and sank 43 over his career, which was a lot for a center in the 1980s and 90s.

He reportedly exhausted the last of his fortune helping family members who were trapped in the Sudan, where he was accused of being a spy after the US bombed the country in 1998. (Right) Bol, alongside his son Bol Bol, before being honored at a Kansas City Royals game in 2008.

Manute's skill on the court certainly passed down to his son, Bol Bol, who is now ranked No. 4 in the country by ESPN and recently announced that he will be attending the University of Oregon.
