Nuggets’ Bol Bol a big fan of LeBron James, game-changing Kevin Durant
In an interview with Bryan Kalbrosky of Hoopshype, Bol said that James was his favorite player growing up. The 19-year-old center has witnessed how James dominated the league in the last two decades, where he won four Most Valuable Player awards and three championships in nine NBA Finals appearances.
Bol also added that he is also a huge supporter of Durant, pointing out that the Nets superstar has been changing the game because of his unique skillset. Durant is among the tallest players in the league, but has unique athleticism and super scoring abilities.
“Actually, LeBron was my favorite player growing up. Kevin Durant is changing basketball with the way he plays,” Bol revealed. “I’m a fan of Kristaps Porzingis. I also love Kyrie Irving. Those are the people I watch the most.”
The former Oregon standout will get a chance to play with the players he is looking up to, as he is set to begin his NBA career next season. The 7-foot-2 standout was drafted 44th overall by the Nuggets in this year’s draft, and is considered by many as a steal because he was projected as a top-5 pick before he was injured last season in college.
