According to Bol Bol’s trainer Julius V, he’s the new unicorn. The fans turned on the first basketball in months at the weekend and it didn’t disappoint. One of the surprises was the Denver Nuggets’ lineup against the Washington Wizards on Wednesday.
The Nuggets had the highest starting lineup in NBA history with Bol Bol as a small striker. The 7-2 star had 16 points against the Wizards and 15 points against the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday. The Bol Bol trainer talked about how hard he worked.
According to the Denver Post, he said::
“He was in the gym all day,” V told the Denver Post. “What I told him … just as special and freaked out as he is on the offensive, he can be just as special and freaked out on the defense,” said V. “It’s not always about actually blocking the shot. You can change the man’s shot. You can make the boys think if they should shoot. “
Bol Bol has not been drafted, but it has a lot of potential and this potential was shown in Orlando. The games give many players the chance to break out and Bol Bol is one of them. This league has proven that it can produce 7-0 players without a position.
“It’s crazy because so many people call unicorn and that’s exactly what it is,” said V. “Likes [Dallas Mavericks’ Kristaps Porzingis]. Porzingis is the definition of a unicorn. Bol is that. “
