Bol Bol – Denver Nuggets (drafted by Miami Heat)
Centers who are between 7’1″ and 7’3″ are always a blast to use in 2K due to their length, and is it great if you’re someone who loves grabbing rebounds. Bol Bol, the son of the late, shot-blocking machine Manute Bol, has many unique skills for a big man of his size.
For starters, posting up dudes in the paint will be good fun, as his length will allow for some nice hook shot opportunities and potential posterizing dunks. Although he played only nine games in college, the former Oregon star put up some monster numbers which included 21 points and 2.7 blocks per game.
So not only can he post up and dominate in the paint, but he can give you plenty of swats on the other end on the floor. And what makes things even more fun (and more unfortunate for your opponents), is that Bol should be a very solid three-point shooter as well.
Even though it was a small sample size, the big man shot a whopping 52% from the three-point island in his short time with the Ducks. This could yield him a 78 to 80 rating from beyond the arc in NBA 2K20.
With all of these skills, you can put up some ridiculous numbers with Bol. You’d be able to drop buckets, collect plenty of rebounds, and block more people than an Xbox or PlayStation gamer.
And his outside shooting ability will lead to some juicy pick and pop opportunities as well, and that can lead to some hot scoring. Speaking of which, expect the Pick & Popper badge to be in his pocket.
Bol has a chance to grab plenty of badges, including Hustle Rebounder, Chasedown Artist, and Up & Under Specialist among others. I also think it would make sense for him to have Corner Specialist as well, but I have a feeling that they won’t include it. This doesn’t take away from his solid shooting abilities though.
With immense size, the ability to score at a high level, and play great defense, Bol Bol will easily be one of the two or three most exciting rookies to play within NBA 2K20. Denver Nuggets fans should be quite pleased.
