Phoenix Suns star Devin Booker recently posted on Twitter looking for the fan who got into a fight against a couple of Denver Nuggets supporters. Just an hour later, he found the man (named Nick McKellar) on social media and made sure to show his appreciation.

For what it's worth, it doesn't look like it was a hard detective work at all for Booker, as the said fan has “suns.in.4” as his name on IG. On one of the fan's old IG posts, Booker commented and called him a “legend.” Of course, that got the fan really hyped.
It's doubtful the interaction will end here, as it's likely Devin Booker and the Suns will want McKellar in their home court come the Western Conference Finals.
For those who doesn't know, McKellar went viral recently after getting into a fight with Nuggets fans in Denver's homecourt in Game 3. It was the usual chirping of home fans to the visitors, but things get physical as it ended up in a brawl after one of the Nuggs supporters tried to deliver a sneaky punch.
McKellar fought back and pummeled his attackers before shouting “Suns in 4”–which Phoenix actually fulfilled after they swept the Nuggets in Game 4.
Certainly, there's a lot of positivity surrounding the Suns right now after they booked their ticket to the West Finals. There is also renewed hope they will be able to make it all the way to the Finals and win it all, which should only get the fans even more excited.
