“An Awkward Encounter: Tacko Fall’s Thoughts on Meeting Victor Wembanyama”

At a towering height of 7 feet and 6 inches, Fall never has to tilt his head down while communicating with someone.

Tacko Fall thinks meeting Victor Wembanyama 'would be weird'

In an interview with Shams Charania of The Athletic on Sunday, Tacko Fall admitted that he has never met Victor Wembanyama, and that if he did, it would be an “awkward” encounter. At 7-foot-6, Fall is used to towering over most people, but Wembanyama’s height would surpass his own. Fall stated that it would feel strange for him to look someone in the eye, given his curved neck from constantly talking to people. Despite this, he had kind words to say about Wembanyama, calling him a “great kid.” Fall recently signed with the Nanjing Monkey Kings in China after playing for the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA, where he received limited playing time after going undrafted in 2019.
