Boston Celtics backup center Tacko Fall got a swim lesson from teammates Enes Kanter and Jaylen Brown while inside the NBA bubble.

While we've seen players use their time in Orlando to fish, golf, and shotgun beers, Fall's swimming session is probably the most wholesome content you'll see produced inside the bubble.

Fall, whose listed height is seven-foot-five, never learned how to swim while he grew up in Senegal, but had been taking lessons as recently as last fall through the Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston's Charlestown Club, according to a story from Martin Kessler at WBUR.

"No matter where he is, it's the shallow end — and it's up to his ribs," said 8-year-old Kata, who took part in Fall's lessons last year. "And he needed five kickboards in a stack so he can float."

While Fall's swim classes may look a little bit different inside the bubble, his teammates seem happy to lend him support through his lessons in Kata's stead.
