Tacko Fall Gets Ridiculous Block At Jazz Summer League
SALT LAKE CITY – Tacko Fall showed off his incredible size while playing for the Utah Jazz at the Salt Lake City Summer League.
After gathering an offensive rebound, Memphis Grizzlies rookie Jake Laravio tried a push shot in the paint only to see the ball picked out of mid-air by Fall.
You can see Fall make the incredible play in the tweet below.

Fall has been a fan favorite since he first joined the Jazz Summer League roster drawing raucous from fans inside Vivint Arena from the moment he stepped on the floor in game one on Tuesday night.
Standing 7-foot-6, Fall is the tallest player in the NBA and draws an impressive fanbase wherever he suits up.
On Wednesday Fall didn’t play in the Jazz loss to the Philadelphia 76ers, but that didn’t stop fans from chanting “We want Tacko” throughout the evening.
Fall played better in the first half against the Grizzlies on Thursday. The former Boston Celtics center scored four points, grabbed two rebounds, and added his highlight-reel block in a three minutes stint.
