There was, perhaps, no greater 2019 NBA Draft night surprise than the tough-to-watch tanking of former Oregon Ducks standout freshman star Bol Bol.

Bol Bol had been a game-changing talents for the Ducks before ending his season early with a surgically repaired left foot, which is fair concern for a 7-footer of his stature in the NBA.

However, we have finally been able to get a glimpse of what he can really do in some NBA exhibition games, including Saturday's against the New Orleans Pelicans.

The 7-foot-2 (with a 7-foot-8 wingspan) Bol grabbed the rock on a dribble hand-off just beyond the 3-point arc and put the ball on the floor as he drove the rim, unsurprisingly attracting the attention of nearly the entire Pelicans defense.

Yet, thanks to his incredible height and length, Bol Bol simply goes right up and over them for 2 points in the paint.

Perhaps, nobody says it better than the announcer on this play either, commenting that it's like Bol Bol is playing with a "Nerf ball" out there.
