Mike Breen accidentally refers to Tacko Fall as ‘Taco Bell’ in unfortunate but hilarious on-air gaffe

“Yo quiero Tacko Fall.”

Mike Breen, fresh off being inducted into the Pro Basketball Hall of Fame, had a small, unfortunate gaffe behind the microphone during Sunday’s Knicks-Celtics matchup: Midway through the third quarter, Breen accidentally referred to Boston center Tacko Fall as “Taco Bell.” 

Hilarity ensued.

“Noel keeps it alive, but right to Taco Bell, here comes Parker,” Breen says, followed a short pause. “Did I just say Taco Bell?”

“You must be hungry, bro!” longtime partner Walt “Clyde” Frazier jests.

Breen, after a long weekend of honors and festivities, said that he might need to get some sleep. Or perhaps a cheesy five-layer burrito.

The Knicks would go on to win the game after a near fourth-quarter collapse, securing the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference and giving 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 sports’ greatest play-by-play voices has earned respect and praise from all corners of the hoops world.

Those same folks noticed his hilarious botch on Sunday and weighed in.

Mistake or not, it’s just another iconic call over the airwaves for Breen.
