He is only playing basketball since 2013 and he started to brake records. He has NBA record wingspan of 8ft 2.3in (2.5m). He has shown great performance since he started to play and he is in NBA today! It's good story about the hard working and success..
He was born in Dakar, Senegal in 1995 and he was playing football and he didn't interets in playing basketball.. Once he has visited International Sports Training Institute in his country and his basketball history has started there. He has collected all the attentions there with his tall height and amazing wingpan. The 23 years old Senegalese player moved to the USA when he was 16 and had never even played basketball before.

I have just watched his interview on ESPN , he was talking about himself, i transmit you this conversation with his words: "Personnaly i love my height, But it's tough to find clothes or shoes! I'm just a little kid from Senegal, i barely started playing basketball six years ago. When i was a kid i just wanted to watch cartoons after school and my grandma watched basketball, so we used to argue because there was only one TV in the house and she wanted to watch the Fiba AfroBasket Championships! But now basketball is my life. If i don't play for one day it drives me crazy! It's a dream come true.. Honestly, i am dreaming!!
Fall played against Cleveland Cavaliers two days ago and he scored 4 points, grabbed 2 rebounds and dishes 2 assists in only 7 minutes. Bright start right?? I really like to know stories like this one, good stories could create great characters.. I am waiting for the watch him more when NBA starts! Thank you for reading..
