Calling him the "tall guy" is accurate, but there are plenty of other things that the 7'1" center would probably rather be called. The burrito stand could have called him the "2012 NBA Defensive Player of the Year" or "2011 NBA champion." Either of those would have been more acceptable.
On the plus side, it looks like Tyson can go out in public and not be recognized. That has to have its benefits.
