Tall people love basketball, right? Well, I do! For most of us height privileged people basketball is something that comes slightly easier to us than to others. Tacko Fall is a young man who has taken his height into his favor.
Tacko (full name: Elhadji Tacko Sereigne Diop Fall) is a college basketball player from Senegal who plays for the University of Central Florida (UCF). He has become quite popular due to the fact that he is 7 foot 7 inches tall and is just as mobile as someone half his size. This attention put him into this years NBA Draft Combine. The hype about his years draft is that Tack Fall broke the combined measurement records. His height, arm span, and low body fat percentage made him an easily outlier to spot.
Being well over seven feet tall and having arms that span about that length makes for a basketball playing machine. I can not imagine anyone being tall enough to shoot over that size of “human” wall. It will be exciting to see Tacko play with the Knicks this next NBA season. I am certain his genetic/developed abilities will create a lot of value for this lucky team that signed this awesome athlete.
