The Boston Celtics fans had a lot of grievances against their players at their 107-110 loss at home court. However, one particular fan had a complaint that was perhaps a bit different from the others.

A woman sitting courtside on the second row couldn’t see the game because the person sitting in front of her in the first row was none other than former Celtics center Tacko Fall. Fall is a staggering 7’6″ tall, with a wingspan of about 2.54m.

Fan couldn’t see the game because of former Celtic Tacko Fall

Fall had come to cheer for his former team in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals at TD Garden. After playing for the Celtics till 2021, he now plays in the NBA G League for Cleveland Charge.

At one point during the match, the camera panned towards him and the commentators pointed out that they’d hate to be the person sitting behind Tacko. Because with a literal giant sitting in front of you, it is impossible to see what’s going on in the court.

They also highlighted the fact that courtside seats are really expensive. And that’s not the experience you sign up for when you buy a ticket to a playoff game.

If I am the person in the second row-who you can’t see. Because that person can’t see the game. Those are expensive seats.

The staff at TD Garden seem to agree with the sentiment. A few minutes later, a staff member brought the fan who was sitting behind Tacko a booster pad to sit on.

The lady seemed visibly overjoyed. She even exchanged high-fives with Tacko and a few others on the vicinity.

However, as Kenny Smith pointed out later on in the NBA on TNT broadcast. That probably was not a very pleasant experience for the people sitting behind her.

Celtics fumbled an easy win

The Celtics lost Game 5 at home even after leading comfortably for almost the entirety of the game. Milwaukee took the lead with just 11 seconds remaining on the clock.
