Tacko Fall certainly has captured the attention of just about every Celtics fan.
Fans at TD Garden on Sunday were demanding the rookie center be put into action and absolutely lost their minds when Fall finally was put into the game. And he did not disappoint in his preseason debut with a putback dunk and a couple of impressive blocks.
The performance has some saying Fall needs to be on the Celtics’ roster come the regular season, and has caught the attention of former NBA MVP Kevin Durant.
Durant questioned on Twitter why guards would try to “finesse” layups against the big man.
That’s a very good question that Celtics fans will be hoping many players don’t start asking themselves going forward.
Fall’s spot on the roster is anything but guaranteed, though coach Brad Stevens hopes the center continues to draw the appreciation of fans. For now, we can just enjoy watching Fall try to fight his way onto the roster.
