Celtics Forward Brandon Bass learns to swim
WALTHAM, Mass. (WHDH) -- Celtics forward Brandon Bass is taking the plunge at the Boys and Girls Club of Boston and learning how to swim.
The 28-year-old basketball player said his kids were part of his inspiration.
“[My 6-year-old] has one up on me, he knows how to swim. Daddy might be able to beat him at everything else, but he can beat me at swimming,” Bass said.
He said that by admitting he can’t swim and learning the new skill he hopes to encourage others.
“Me putting out that I don’t know how to swim and I’m willing to learn how to swim I think it will encourage kids and even their parents to learn how to swim,” bass said.
