    Manute bol is dead

    REST IN PEACE.



    Manute Bol, one of the tallest and most beloved players in NBA history, died Saturday morning of kidney trouble and a painful skin condition. He was 47.
    The 7-foot-7 center played 10 seasons in the NBA, including three seasons in Golden State, where he became a fan favorite for his shot-blocking skills and unusual penchant for shooting three-pointers. Bol donated almost all of his $6 million in career earnings to his native Sudan.

    Even during his playing days, he went into war zones to preach peace. His family was wiped out by Darfurians, but when that country became victims, Bol was one of the first Sudanese to speak out in support.

    "He was a wonderful man with a terrific sense of humor," Warriors coach Don Nelson said. "He had everybody on our team in stitches all of the time.

    "He cared deeply about his people and did everything he could to help them."

    Bol also cared about his teammates. He played practical jokes on them and spent hours after practice playing H.O.R.S.E. with more talented shooters, like Chris Mullin.

    That's how Nelson decided to allow Bol to launch shots usually reserved for guards. Looking for a way to hide Bol's lack of offensive skills, Nelson told him to stand near the three-point arc and shoot only if the shot clock was down to five seconds or less.

    "He actually thought he was a good offensive
    "What kind of mirror image do you have of yourself?"

    When you really love someone
    Giving up .... so hard to do
    When you still depend upon
    Her warm and tender touch
    Her kiss and her hug..........her caress
    Oooooh that used to mean so much
    And bring you happiness"
