While Tacko Fall has mixed feelings about all the attention he's received from fans, his teammates are fully embracing Tacko Mania.

"We love it," Marcus Smart said of the "We want Tacko" chants following the Boston Celtics' preseason win over the Orlando Magic on Friday, according to John Karalis of MassLive.com. "It's crazy to hear, to see. We love it. We want to see him succeed. And we want to see the place erupt for him."

That's exactly what happened when Fall finally entered Friday's game midway through the fourth quarter.

Smart said Fall was caught off guard when he and Jayson Tatum told him it was time to check into the game.

"He said, 'Coach told me to go in exactly at the five-minute mark,' and I was like, 'He just told me to come get you so get up, let's go,'" Smart said. "It was good to see him get out there."
