Fall gets love in All-Star fan voting
NBA fans have fallen in love with the charismatic 7-foot-5 Boston Celtics center, helping the rookie who spends part of his time in the G League rank No. 6 in early NBA All-Star Eastern Conference front court fan voting.
Fall, a former star at UCF, has 110,269 votes despite playing limited NBA minutes. He is behind: 1. Giannis Antetokounmpo, 2. Joel Embiid, 3. Pascal Siakam, 4. Jimmy Butler and 5. Jayson Tatum.
UCF athletics director Danny White is throwing his support behind Fall and urging Knights fans to vote for the big man. Fans can vote for all-stars twice a day on NBA.com.
During his whirlwind NBA rookie season, Fall has become one of the more popular Celtics. His humility, dedication to improving and nimble play despite his size has delighted fans. Off the court, he’s a Boys and Girls Club ambassador who learned to swim alongside Boston area children and was a guest conductor for the Boston Pops’ holiday concert.
