The one and only Manute Bol. I once got to see him play in person vs. the Seattle Sonics.

Manute Bol was the tallest man in the NBA at 7'7''. He was one of the best blockers in history. He lacked strength, only weighing 200 lbs (after gaining 20 lbs from weight training). After retirement from basketball, he worked on humanitarian causes. He died at age 47 from an adverse reaction to a medication.
