Being from CT, we saw a lot of Manute Bol.  He played for a very low level pro team in Bridgeport before the NBA, and he was around Stamford quite frequently (as was Eddie Lee Wilkins).  Bol's forearms at that time were smaller than mine, and I'm only 5'11".  He looked like somebody that absolutely would get killed by the first elbow he took to the chest.  Yet he bulked up and became a really good player overall - he had a lot to offer to basketball.  This kid needs to bulk up overall, and once he starts getting fed five times a day he will.
