The Boston Celtics certainly have a unique Summer League roster, as they have both the tallest player on an NBA roster and one of the shortest in 7-foot-6 UCF center Tacko Fall and 6-foot (on a good day) Purdue point guard Carsen Edwards. One photographer finally got a picture of the dynamic duo side by side, and it looks totally photoshopped.
Are we sure this photo wasn't just altered to make Edwards look like a shrimp next to the giant Fall?
The comparison to Manute Bol, a 7-foot-7 center who played with and against the likes of 5-foot-3 Muggsy Bogues and 5-foot-7 Spud Webb, was not lost on Twitter.
While some expected him to be nothing more than a carnival sideshow, Fall has proven to be a solid player on both ends of the floor. A high IQ player with surprisingly good movement for his size, Fall's ability to finish near the rim and block a shot on the next possession is unrivaled across all of Summer League.
After his sterling performances in Las Vegas' Summer League, the novelty of Fall is wearing off and people are seeing him for the quality player he is.
