Celtics rookie Tacko Fall quickly became a fan favorite because his name is Tacko Fall and he’s 7-foot-5.

But there are drawbacks to being so tall, which is why Fall is in the concussion protocol.

John Karalis of MassLive:

Fall explained to MassLive that he was trying to wash his hands after a workout at the practice facility but didn’t notice a “low ceiling.”
Fall hit his head

I’d like to see just how low this ceiling is. Our definitions might differ.
