The Phoenix Suns made some major moves in the offseason, obviously headlined by Bradley Beal’s acquisition.
More than that, they filled their roster with long and switchable defenders, shooters, and team-first kind of guys to round out their team around their four stars.
One of the moves they made was signing Bol Bol, who’s always had an enticing and promising skill set, but has struggled to find his footing in the league, either because of injuries, concerns about his defense, or his work ethic.
However, it seems like Manute Bol’s son is ready to put the doubters at ease and finally have a breakout season, as shown in a clip shared by NBA Central.
Still, just like what happened with Ben Simmons and his offseason workout videos, the fans have become skeptical and took to Twitter to doubt whether he’ll actually be able to make an impact on the court.
These videos mean nothing but a nba player playing pickup just like every off-season.

There was a point when Bol was actually one of the highest-touted recruits in his class, and he did show glimpses of great play from time to time.
He can stretch the floor with his shooting skills, all while also being able to put the ball on the floor and swat some shots into the stands, but he’s not much of a rebounder — especially for a guy who’s 7-foot-2.
Bol Bol’s game is entertaining and fun to watch, and there’s still a chance that he can become an impactful player in this league.
For now, however, it seems like we’ll just have to see it to believe it.NEXT: Suns Are Making Sure Fans Are Able To Watch Their Games
