NBA star Devin Booker is rewarding the Phoenix fan featured in a viral arena fight as he proved prophetic to the Suns’ sweep of the Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference semifinals.
According to ESPN reporter Zach Lowe, the All-Star guard will gift Suns faithful Nick McKellar a signed Booker jersey and tickets to the conference finals after a dust-up with a Nuggets fan.
In a video that has now been watched by millions, McKellar pummeled the Nuggets fan near the end of the Suns’ Game 3 win in Denver before he made his fearless forecast.
“Suns in four,” McKellar said while flashing his fingers.
McKellar said he acted in “self-defense” as other videos showed the Nuggets fan pouring a drink on him.
While McKellar still did not fight back from that incident, he said he retaliated only after the Nuggets fan went in for a “sucker punch.”
Booker caught wind of McKellar and immediately searched for him.
“[I] just want to say sorry, hate to make us fans look like heathens. Just acting on self-defense,” McKellar wrote in a message sent to Booker.
Just like how McKellar claimed, the Suns toppled the Nuggets in four games of their best-of-seven affair, closing out the series with a 125-118 victory.
The Suns will face either the Los Angeles Clippers or the Utah Jazz in the Western Conference finals. – Rappler.com
