Tacko Fall is embracing every minute spent with his Boston Celtics teammates down in the Orlando bubble.

Fall, who signed a two-way contract with the C's last summer, spoke Monday about how much he is enjoying the opportunity to bond with the team each day heading into the NBA season restart.

"It's a blessing just to be around [the team] and practice with them every day," Fall told reporters on a Zoom call. "All of them are great players. I've been fortunate to be on a great team. Every single one of them brings a lot to the game and I'm just trying to learn as much as possible from them.

"For me, just focusing on what my job really is when I step on the court, especially right now. I have to be the best rim protector I can possibly be, and being around these guys, all of them are good players. It's been great. I'm seeing myself getting even better through these last few practices."

Fall and the C's are making the most out of their days at Disney World, as evidenced by the videos of them racing in the pool and facing off in volleyball. Chemistry certainly won't be an issue for Boston when play resumes.

While we likely won't see much of Fall outside of scrimmages and garbage time, it's encouraging to hear the 7-foot-5 phenom say he's noticing an improvement in his game. If Fall can continue to develop as a rim protector, we can count on there being many more "We Want Tacko!" chants in the future.

The Celtics are set to resume their campaign July 31 with a matchup against the first-place Milwaukee Bucks.
