    Former 7'6" NBA player Manute Bol has died at 47 years young. He once played hockey for the Indianapolis Ice of the Central Hockey League for fundraising. Would have made Chara look like Briere.

    RIP.

    That's too bad. He did a lot of humanitarian work in his native Sudan I believe.

    RIP

    Interesting. Apparently Bol is credited with coining the phrase "My bad". http://askville.amazon.com/person-start-made-mistake/AnswerViewer.do?requestId=3841229
