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.
