Tacos have been all the rage in the NBA lately. Whether it be LeBron James going viral for his Taco Tuesday announcements or another Boston Celtics fan calling for a roster spot for center Tacko Fall, Taco/Tacko is all over the league.
One young Celtics fan doubled up on both by getting Tacko Fall to sign a picture of a well…taco.

It seems like all of Boston has jumped on the Fall bandwagon. The 7-foot-6 center went undrafted in the 2019 draft but quickly made an impression with his Summer League highlights. In five games, Fall averaged 7.2 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.4 blocks while shooting a tremendous 77 percent from the floor.
Besides the solid stat line, the Senegalese center provided a few highlight-reel worthy moments. Between dunking while still standing on the floor and sending multiple shots flying into the stands, Fall saw his fame rise when a photo of him running down the court next to fellow rookie Carsen Edwards went viral because of the massive height difference.
Although he already has a cult-like following, Fall has yet to officially claim a roster spot. He still has a little over two months to show the Celtics that he can be an everyday contributor to a team that has playoff aspirations.
Even if he doesn’t make the roster, you can bet that Celtics fans will be clamoring for a Tacko appearance at some point during the regular season.
