Boston Celtics 7-foot-7 Rookie center, Tacko Fall, took swimming lessons Wednesday alongside the children at the Charlestown Boys & Girls Club.

Per the New York Post...

“I never learned how to swim, which is crazy because I lived right by the ocean back in Senegal,” Fall said. “I don’t want to say I was a homebody, but my mom wouldn’t let me go out a lot. I used to go to school and go back home, but I never really got to enjoy the beaches as much.”

Fall, who said he “can stand in most pools,” has previously had aquatic workouts, but this marked his first swimming lesson. He expressed an interest in returning to the club, so that he can continue his learning.

“I’m a natural,” he said, smiling. “I’m learning how to swim. This is it. I’m learning how to swim. Just give me a couple of days.
