NBA Twitter question Devin Booker as Suns fan Nick McKellar, also known as ‘Suns in 4’ guy gets celebrity status in Game 1
The Phoenix Suns made their first playoff series since the 2009-10 season. This has all the Suns loyals hyped up, and why wouldn’t they be. They waited for a long time for their franchise to go back to its glory days.
A Suns fan got his face all over the internet when he got into a beef with two Nuggets fans. The fan was clearly seen saying, ‘Suns in 4′ while throwing jabs and punches. Suns’ star Devin Booker took notice of the fan and asked his Twitter to help him get the details.
When news got out that Booker sent that fan tickets to the upcoming games, the NBA Twitter was split. While some rejoiced, others, including former NBA Champion Richard Jefferson, felt it was a wrong move.

This dude is winning at life. His team is rolling, he won a fight at an arena that he didn’t even start, got free tickets, shout out from the best player on his favorite team and is now a must see attraction for other fans. Huge W

While there are mixed reactions on the guy, it is safe to say that he would be a regular in attendance this series, and any more, if the Suns advance.
