NBA Draft prospect Bol Bol has a spiderweb pattern on his suit
The NBA Draft is merely hours away, and the Green Room invitees are all en route to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., including Bol Bol.
The draft prospect is rocking a spiderweb pattern on his suit:

Bol is one of the most polarizing players in the draft. He has arguably one of the most unique skill sets of any prospect the league has seen in years, given that he is a 7-footer capable of handling the ball and shooting from well past the three-point arc.
Although he played just nine games in his freshman season at Oregon, Bol showed just how dominant he could be as he averaged 21.0 points, 9.6 rebounds and 2.7 blocks while shooting a stunning 52 percent from three. He scored 26 points against Syracuse and poured in 23 against Houston, two prominent teams that made the NCAA Tournament on the strength of their defensive prowess.
But Bol’s height and lankiness also bring plenty of health questions. He missed the rest of the 2018-19 season with a foot injury, and his father (Manute Bol) suffered from a number of maladies throughout his NBA career.
However, the Oregon Duck seems to have quite a bit more athleticism and mobility than most people his size, and his defensive footwork is actually quite sturdy.
Given the unpredictability of how his game will translate in the NBA, the spider web pattern seems like an appropriate accessory. There is a team out there that will be willing to get caught in the web, and rightly so given Bol’s uniqueness.
