Don’t miss NBC Sports Boston's coverage of Celtics-Mavericks, which tips off Monday at 7:00 p.m. ET with Celtics Pregame Live, and then Mike & Tommy have the call of the game at 7:30 p.m. You can also stream the game through the MyTeams App.
Since both came to the Boston Celtics, veteran big man Enes Kanter and 7-foot-5 rookie sensation Tacko Fall have formed a strong friendship. Fall has spoken about what it's been like to be mentored by Kanter, and the duo have done quite a few activities together.
The latest? Haircuts. Well, at least one of them was getting a haircut.
Kanter posted a video of him giving Fall a haircut on Twitter Sunday afternoon. The two seemed to be having a good time and were kidding around with each other. Check it out:
File that under one of the best things you'll see all day.
Tacko and Kanter will surely be spending time together in the near future, and it's safe to say that their off-court antics will continue.
The duo have performed well on the court with the C's. Kanter put up 12 points and 6 rebounds in his first game as a Celtic while Fall has some of the league's most shocking numbers per 36 minutes.

Here's how much time flies: It was only about five months ago that Boston Celtics fans were really introduced to Kemba Walker.
NBC Sports Boston's "Classic Celtics" series (which featured Boston's 1986 playoff thriller against Michael Jordan's Bulls on Sunday) rolls on Wednesday with Walker's fourth game as a Celtic -- and it was an awesome one.
That Oct. 30, 2019, contest against the Bucks saw Walker drop 32 points in his second game at TD Garden, helping the Celtics storm back from a 19-point deficit to win 116-105 and hand Milwaukee one of its 12 losses on the season.
Our re-broadcast of Celtics-Bucks begins Wednesday at 7 p.m. ET, and Walker will join Brian Scalabrine at points throughout the game to reminisce about his epic performance.
Other reasons to watch:
- Walker scoring 13 of his 32 points in the fourth quarter as Boston rallied late to stun the Bucks.
- Jayson Tatum hitting a clutch 3-pointer late in the game -- and earning a high five from C's legend Paul Pierce on the sideline.
- Giannis Antetokounmpo racking up 22 points and 14 rebounds, but Boston admirably holding the Bucks star in check during the second half.
The action all starts at 7 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Boston. You can also watch the game in the MyTeams app and online at NBCSportsBoston.com.

With all kinds of locations being tossed around for a possible return of the NBA in a single-site playoff tournament after the coronavirus crisis eases (Las Vegas, the Bahamas, Orlando, Hawaii, Louisville, and Atlantic City have been reported), Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated thinks only one place makes sense.

Mannix told "Felger and Mazz" on Tuesday that while it looks bleak for an NBA reboot - "the pessimism is still pretty high." - if a centrally-located "season" without fans is to take place, "I have no doubt it's going to be salvaged in Las Vegas."
The city hosts NBA Summer League games and has plenty of now-empty hotel rooms.
"Quarantine the players in July in Las Vegas and to have some form of a tournament that eventually crowns a champion...It's workable. It's doable."
A Sweet 16-type, one-and-done tournament is an idea that's been put out there. Mannix says its a possibility. "All 16 playoff teams are involved. How it's structured after that is still a moving target."
