The gregarious 7-foot-5 big man put on a show against the Washington Wizards, stuffing former Most Valuable Player Russell Westbrook and center Robin Lopez both while slamming home a thunderous dunk and running the floor like a gazelle. While he still may need to clean up his game in some regards, he showed he can make an impact on a game when facing some very good players, which is light years ahead of where he was even in the Disney restart bubble.
And with that excellent play came a lot of attention, such as the segment linked above of the CLNS podcast “The Garden Report,” where renowned Boston sports journalist Bob Ryan and Jeff Goodman talk about what they saw from Fall versus the Wizards.
Give it a watch yourself while we wait for this mini-hiatus to end, perhaps as soon as Friday against the Orlando Magic.
