In an exclusive interview with Brandon “Scoop B” Robinson, former NBA player Tacko Fall shared his thoughts on the Boston Celtics’ acquisition of Kristaps Porzingis.

Fall expressed admiration for Porzingis’s remarkable talent, highlighting his ability to make significant contributions on both ends of the floor with his impressive skill set and defensive presence.

“Porzingis is a VERY talented player,” Fall said. “The things that he can do at his size are very impressive and he can have a great defensive presence because he can stretch the floor and I’m really rooting for those guys.”

Acknowledging the dedication and hard work of his former teammates, Fall expressed his hope for the Celtics to achieve their ultimate goal of winning a championship, emphasizing their commitment to success as they continue to put in the work during offseason preparations.

“I want them to be able to accomplish their goals like winning a championship. All of them are dedicated and they’re working really hard. A lot of them are in L.A. working right now, so I’m looking forward to the season and how it’s going to play out,” he said.

With Porzingis making a significant impact since joining the Celtics, the team currently boasts the best record in the NBA (43-12), a testament to the effectiveness of their offseason roster moves and the seamless integration of key additions.

Porzingis’s impressive statistical contributions, averaging 20.2 points, 6.9 rebounds, and 1.9 assists per game, underscore his value to the Celtics and his ability to elevate the team’s performance on both ends of the court.

In addition to discussing Porzingis, Fall also shared his insights on his former teammate Jaylen Brown, praising Brown’s resilience and determination to excel on the court despite facing challenges and adversity.

Reflecting on Brown’s journey and recent contract extension, Fall emphasized the importance of recognition and respect for Brown’s contributions to the Celtics, highlighting his pivotal role in the team’s success.

“Now they have put some respect on his name but still, he knows it. He got the deal but Jaylen is going to be Jaylen; he’s going to go out there and do his thing and I meant what I said — he needed that respect,” Fall said.
