Boston Celtics’ fan favorite Tacko Fall joined a big list of NBA players who delivered a video message to the basketball world while the season is suspended.

“I just want to say that now is the time to practice kindness and empathy to everyone around you. We all are doing our best to get through this together so make sure you do your part. Grab a book, read it to your nieces and nephews and video chat. Make a donation of canned goods to your local food bank. Even add some items to your shopping cart for elderly neighbours. Most importantly, don’t forget to just pick up the phone and call somebody and check in. It may mean a lot. You never know. We all can’t be next to each other right now but we still can show how much we care about one another.”
