Former Boston Celtics seven-foot-five unicorn Tacko Fall was highly complimentary of the C's marquee offseason, Kristaps Porzingis, while speaking with Brandon "Scoop B" Robinson of Bovada Casino on February 13.
"Porziņģis is a VERY talented player," Fall prefaced before saying, "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; 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."
Fall also commented on the other half of Porzingis's newly-formed bromance, Jaylen Brown, claiming that the league should know not to respect No. 7 any longer.
"Now they have put some respect on his name but still, he knows it," Fall said. "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."
Former Boston Celtics unicorn Tacko Fall teases a future in WWE
Robinson asked Fall, an attraction to just about anyone in the world but especially so in the world of pro wrestling, whether or not he'd consider a career in the WWE. Fall recalled his childhood fandom, even evoking the name of another international giant, the "Punjabi Playboy," The Great Khali.
"I was a big WWE fan when I was a kid! I was rocking with The Rock, John Cena… they had this dude called The Great Khali and it’s crazy because I was like, 'This guy is tall and now a few years later, I’m taller than him!' But yeah, I used to be a big wrestling fan," Fall said, not once denying he'd be interested.
Perhaps the Senegalese supergiant Fall and "The Nigerian Giant" Omos could meet in a historical big-man battle at WrestleMania one day. There's plenty for Fall in WWE if the 28-year-old ever considered the career switch.
