What would you do if Tacko Fall joined your swim class? That’s exactly what happened at the Boys and Girls Clubs of Boston’s location in Charlestown, when the 7-foot-5 Celtics rookie signed up. Instead of helping teach the class, Fall came for actual lessons. “I never really had a shame saying I couldn’t swim,” he said. Though Fall admitted he was afraid of letting go of the wall (despite staying on the five- to six-foot end of the pool), he joined the other young students in floating, paddling and holding their breath under water. After a successful first lesson, Fall made plans to return for more.
