Brown and Kanter were captured on video helping Fall learn how to swim on Monday at the Walt Disney World Resort.Jaylen Brown, Enes Kanter helping Tacko Fall learn how to swim — The Rookie Wire
After posting a 112-94 win over the Toronto Raptors in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals on Sunday, some Boston Celtics players spent their day off on Monday in the pool for some fun and extra work.
Jaylen Brown and Enes Kanter were captured on video helping Tacko Fall to learn how to swim. The rookie has previously said in the past that he does not know how to swim and previously took part in lessons at the Boys & Girls Club in Boston.
Fall said he grew up near a beach in Senegal but never went to the water much. However, Fall has, like most players, participated in aquatic exercises, and given his 7-foot-5 frame, he can stand up in most pools so learning how to swim likely hasn’t been a priority.

Enes Kanter on Monday trolled Nick Wright for a year-old, poorly aged take about the Boston Celtics.
On Wednesday, the “First Things First” co-host responded directly to Kanter, but you might be surprised by the results.
With Kanter joining via video call, Wright offered this:
“Enes, I don’t do this often, because it doesn’t often happen,” he said. “But I have something to tell you: I was wrong. I thought that the Celtics were going (to have a tough season). And this is why, after watching you for the season, I picked you guys to make the conference finals just a couple of weeks ago on this show.
“I thought you guys were going to really struggle defensively. And, not only did you not struggle defensively, as a team you guys were a top five defense. The defense actually improved slightly when Enes Kanter was on the court. … I deserve to be clowned on this one because i was dead-wrong. I don’t think it was that hot of a take, but I just ended up being wrong.”
