Suns fans rocking ‘Suns in 4’ guy T-shirts for Game 1 vs. Clippers

The guy on the shirt, lifelong Suns fan Nick McKellar, went viral for getting into a fight with Denver Nuggets fans at the end of Game 3 of their second-round series. McKellar shouted “Suns in 4!” after getting in a few good licks, which he said came in self-defense.
McKellar’s proclamation came true, as Phoenix wound up sweeping away Denver the very next game. With the sweep, the Suns clinched their first appearance in the Western Conference Finals since 2010.
Suns star Devin Booker took notice of the incident as well, and he’s hooking McKellar up with a signed jersey and tickets to a Western Conference Finals game. McKellar is now a legend in Phoenix for this, and these T-shirts are pretty awesome.
The Suns will now try to make McKellar proud by making it to the NBA Finals. They must start the series without Chris Paul because positive COVID-19 test, so they’ll have to dig deep against a Clippers team that just beat the Utah Jazz four games in a row. Of course, Kawhi Leonard is also out for now.
