Tacko Fall makes Enes Kanter look small in the post

The NBA’s re-measurements of all its players have yet to come out, so Enes Kanter is still listed at 6-foot-11. It’s hard to imagine he’ll be below 6-foot-10, if he doesn’t measure in at 6-foot-11.

Point is, Kanter is tall by anyone’s standard. Yet, somehow, during the first day of Celtics Training Camp, Kanter looked like a guard dealing with a height mismatch on the block after switching off a screen.

That might’ve had something to do with the fact he was guarding his 7-foot-7 teammate, Tacko Fall.

Kanter held his own though. He was definitely quicker than Fall.

And Kanter wasn’t the only Celtics big man Fall had fun with throughout the day.

Here are a few other notes from the first day of Celtics Training Camp:

—Jayson Tatum looked very comfortable, especially from deep. At one point, he drilled 11 three’s in a row.

“We said it a lot yesterday, ‘fresh start.’ That’s really what it feels like,” Tatum said. “It feels good to be back.”

Brad Stevens like what he saw from the Celtics wing, too.

“I thought Jayson was very good today,” he said. “Just like I expect.”

—Romeo Langford got his work in from three, like everyone else. Here’s a quick look at his jumper:

—Stevens may be happier than anyone that Media Day has come and gone.

“Believe it or not, the Jumbotron is not my thing,” he said. “All the different faces I was supposed to pick up at the photo booth, flexing on NBC Sports Boston is not my cup of tea. I like practice and I like the games. That’s about it.”

—One of Kemba Walker’s top priorities before the season starts is further developing his relationship with Stevens.

“That’s really important to me,” Walker said. “I’ve always felt that as a point guard I should have a good relationship with my head coach. Yeah, me and Brad, we’ve been talking a lot. We’ll continue to grow. That stuff just takes time, it takes a lot of time. I’m looking forward to the growth between me and him.”
