Devin Booker handing out tickets to Suns fans
Booker tweeted Monday that he wanted to know the identity of a Suns fan who was recorded hitting a Denver Nuggets fan in the final minutes of Game 3 of the playoffs, as even the same character voiced: “Suns! 4 o’clock!” , referring to the Phoenix team getting a comb-over.
It didn’t take the Booker reps long to find Nick McKellar, a longtime Suns fan who currently resides in Denver.
McKellar confirmed to Sports Network that Booker and the Suns will send McKellar a signed jersey and provide him with tickets to a conference final.
In several media appearances, McKellar said he had spirited discussions with the Denver fans who surrounded him for most of the match, and that he only acted in self-defense.
McKellar’s statement was corroborated by the recording and other eyewitnesses in local media.
