NEW YORK - Taco Bell has replaced longtime sponsor McDonald's as the NBA's fast-food partner.

Taco Bell and the NBA have agreed on a four-year deal that includes ads for the fast-food chain on ABC, TNT and ESPN, NBA-themed promotions at Taco Bell's 5,600 restaurants and NBA-themed advertising. Taco Bell will be the title sponsor for the All-Star Saturday Night Skills Challenge and an associate sponsor of the All-Star Jam Session.

The agreement ends the league's 20-year partnership with McDonald's.

The package's value was not disclosed, but a person familiar with the deal confirmed the details to The Associated Press on Wednesday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal had yet to be announced.

The news first was reported by Sports Business Daily.



i always thought mcdonalds was only the high school all-american game sponsor..had no idea they were the main sponsor for the NBA

I hope the Chicago Bulls follow suit and give out free vouchers for a free Cheesy Gordita Crunch as opposed to Big Mac if they score 100+ points and Win.

Last year, when the Rockies scored over 7 runs, Taco Bell had 4 tacos for $1. This year, when the Nuggets scored over 110 pts, they had 4 tacos for $1 with the purchase of a drink.

Um... no it's not. Where do you live? Everywhere there is a KFC or McDonald's or Wendy's, there's a Taco Bell right beside it.
