Devin Booker hooking up Suns in 4 guy after fight with Nuggets fans
Phoenix Suns star Devin Booker was loving the fact that one of their fans literally scrapped a Nuggets supporter earlier in the Denver series. Book then took to social media on Monday to try and find the fan and sure enough, he has.
According to ESPN, Booker’s representatives at CAA have identified Nick McKellar, a lifelong Suns fan who now lives in Denver. They plan to send him a signed Booker jersey and tickets to one of the conference final games in Phoenix.
McKellar went viral after Game 3 of the second round when he exchanged some trash talk with a Nuggets fan and his friend. However, once he poured beer on him, McKellar lost it and started throwing hands. Booker saw the video and had to track the guy down to show him some love.
The Suns are still awaiting their opponent in the conference finals with the Los Angeles Clippers up 3-2 on the Utah Jazz heading into Game 6 on Friday night. Phoenix was handed a real blow though, with floor general Chris Paul set to be in the league’s health and safety protocols due to a positive COVID-19 test. At this point, it’s unknown how long he’ll be out but it’s expected to be around 10 days.
If the Suns do end up playing the Clippers, however, they will be shorthanded as well with Kawhi Leonard sidelined indefinitely with an ACL injury.
