    R.I. P. Manute Bol

    He was an impressive force in basketball, even if his career stats weren't up there; but what a really decent man with a lot of humanitarian efforts he was engaged in.

    One of the very best representatives for basketball (or any other sport) ever.

    He was, let's say, a unique presence on the court. Nobody moved like he did! He inspired his countrymen and women and gave a face to Sudan. Sorry to lose him so young.

    What a great loss!
    The world is better for his presence here.

    I'm grateful that his suffering has ended.

    Bless his heart; he suffered so in the last couple of years too.

    His commitment to humanitarian efforts was a great example of someone using his fame for a great purpose. He's had an impact on a lot of people.
