In terrible news we are sad to announce that Manute Bol has died. The University of Virginia Medical Center said that Bol died today at the age of 47. A spokeswoman for the University would not disclose the cause of death. He was suffering from major kidney trouble and a painful skin condition.
Bol finished his career as the second greatest shot blocker of all time with an average of 3.3 shots blocked per game and a game record high of 18! He was seven feet and seven inches in height and came from Sudan where after retirement in 1995 he worked at promoting charitable efforts.
