Denver Nuggets Steal Ducks Darling Bol Bol in Second Round

Denver Nuggets Steal Ducks Darling Bol Bol in Second Round

The 2019 NBA Draft was a hectic night for the league, with a flurry of movement leading right up to the start and even more trades throughout.

"Yes, I think because how good the team is", Bol said when asked if being drafted by Denver makes his slide any easier.

"Basically Red from "Us" and Slenderman had a love child," another comment read.

The 7-foot-3 Bol, the son of the late former National Basketball Association star Manute Bol, was one of the more intriguing prospects in this year's draft.

Giant NBA pick Bol Bol, 19, has caused reverberations across the world wide web for the spider-themed outfit he wore for the 2019 Draft, which was held in Brooklyn, New York on Thursday night.

One reason for Bol's fall could be because teams were questioning the 7-foot-2 center's health after he played just nine games for Oregon. "I just recently started to get back on the court about a month ago".

In May, he also mocked Moore after he teased another Senate bid. " Roy Moore has no place in a Republican primary", said Sen. The shocking allegations included the story of a woman who said Moore sexually molested her when she was 14 and he was 32.


"I just want to prove everyone wrong, and just come out and be the best player I can be", Bol said to ESPN. The 7-foot-2 sniper shot 56.1% from the field, 52% from three-point range and 75.7% from the free throw line. He also only played nine college games at OR because of a foot injury.

The agony ended when Miami ended picked him with the 44th overall pick.

"My game is pretty unique for my size", Bol Bol said. "I can dribble pretty well, can shoot from anywhere pretty well, and my passing is pretty good". He will be 23 by the time his rookie season tips off, which was a concern for a lot of teams, especially since his offensive game is still somewhat of a work in progress.

"Playing for my dream school under my favorite Coach Altman has been the Best part of my life and sadly it has come to end sooner than I would Like but thank you for all those who rocking with me & all OR fans", he wrote in an Instagram post at the beginning of the year. His drop into the middle of the second round left him frustrated.

The Nuggets have a blueprint for how to help Bol moving forward.
