Despite the New York Knicks losing by double digits in their home opener last night, they were still cheering … just not for their own players. Tacko Fall received a warm welcome during his debut game for the Boston Celtics.

Fall is tall – the 7-foot-6 undrafted rookie was 2 of 4 on the floor with three rebounds. He scored his first NBA points with a dunk, where his feet were still on the ground.

Fans love Fall due to his size. His extreme height and enormous hands impress everyone when he goes for the introductory handshake.
“Big Tack! You looking sharp boy.”

The Knicks fell to the Celtics 95-118, while their fans also fell … but for Tacko Fall.
