Mike Breen mistakenly refers to Tacko Fall because the “Taco Bell” in an unlucky however enjoyable on-air gaffe
“I want Tacko Fall.”
Mike Breen, recently inducted into the Pro Basketball Hall of Fame, had an unfortunate little gaffe behind the microphone during Sunday’s Knicks-Celtics matchup: in the middle of the third quarter, Breen accidentally referred to the Boston center Tacko Fall as a “taco.” Bell “. “”
“Noel keeps it alive, but straight to Taco Bell, here comes Parker,” says Breen, pausing for a moment. “Did I just say Taco Bell?”
“You must be hungry, brother!” longtime partner Walt “Clyde” Frazier jokes.

Breen said after a long weekend of honors and festivities that he might need some sleep. Or maybe a cheesy five-layer burrito.
The Knicks would win the game after a fourth-quarter collapse, secure number 4 in the Eastern Conference, and give Breen, a lifelong Knicks fan, a season for the ages.
The long-time voice of the Knicks and the NBA on ESPN, Breen, was inducted into the Hall of Fame on Saturday night. One of the sport’s greatest play-by-play voices has earned respect and praise from every corner of the tire world.
The same people noticed his funny botch on Sunday and weighed in.

I know Mike Breen just got into the Hall of Fame, but I think we need to reinstate him to name Tacko Fall “Taco Bell.”

Haha Mike Breen said “Taco Bell”. With that in mind, I’m going to my fridge to get burritos from last night’s trip to the border. 😂 https://t.co/8BD59ZvaI3

Mistake or not, it’s just another icon for Breen.
