The story of killing a lion and the strange things about Manute Bol

Not only attracted attention because of his special ability to play, Bol caused the press to mention a lot to talk about thrilling stories from him. He once told on a television program called “Live with Regis and Kathie Lee” about defeating a lion with a spear at a young age to protect the family’s cattle. Indeed, the story so far has been questioned. Many people believe that Bol made up that, but clearly this story still makes fans excited.

The question of Bol’s age also made the press many times to mention. In 2017, Business Insider published an article that suspected Bol may be 50 years old while playing in the NBA.

Former Cleveland State University coach Kevin Mackey said Bol could be approximately 50 when he competed in the 1990s. The 73-year-old strategist said he falsified his age in 1984. Bol did not know exactly. How old are you when you come to America? “I chose a time for his birth. Bol doesn’t know how old I am. Nobody knows how old he is,” said coach Kevin Mackey.

Despite all efforts of coach Mackey, Bol still could not play for Cleveland University because of problems arising related to legal. This is why Bol has to find another opportunity and compete for Bridgeport University in NCAA Division 2.

Unlike other “giants” in NBA history, Bol is the most famous and stylish player. Bol’s life and career will be reminded forever because of the stories surrounding his life.
