Suns giving signed Devin Booker jersey, tickets to fan who beat up Nuggets fan
A Suns fan – at least somewhat in response to being attacked – beat up a Nuggets fan during Phoenix’s Game 3 win in Denver then shouted “Suns in four!”
After Suns completed the sweep, Phoenix star Devin Booker tweeted a screenshot of the viral video:
The video begins with the fight already underway. It’s unclear what provoked it.
After intimating as if he were walking away from the skirmish, a Nuggets fan sucker-punched McKellar. McKellar responded by pummeling that fan. Though McKellar deserved room to defend himself and it’s hard to generate much sympathy for the sneak-attacking Denver fan, McKellar’s retaliation also seemed gratuitous.
But I guess Booker and the Suns felt this was one of those times to glorify fan violence.
