He knows what's going on in a lot of subjects. He's not one of these just-basketball guys". During his time in Egypt, Bol ran a basketball school in Cairo. One of his pupils was a fellow Sudanese refugee, Minnesota Timberwolves player Luol Deng , the son of a former Sudanese cabinet minister. Deng later moved to the United States to further his basketball career, maintaining a close relationship with Bol.
In July , Bol was seriously injured in a car accident in Colchester, Connecticut ; he was ejected from a taxi that hit a guardrail and overturned, resulting in a broken neck. His body lay in an eight-foot-long, specially-built casket.
