It didn’t take Phoenix Suns star Devin Booker long to find a fan who went viral for yelling “Suns in 4” in Denver. Booker tweeted Monday he was looking for the fan. By Thursday, Booker found the fan, and offered him some sweet perks for having faith in the Suns.
The fan, Nick McKellar, will receive a signed jersey from Booker and tickets to a conference finals game, according to ESPN’s Zach Lowe.
It didn’t take long for Booker’s representatives at CAA to find Nick McKellar, a lifelong Suns fan who now lives in Denver. Booker and the Suns are going to send McKellar a signed Booker jersey and provide him tickets to a conference finals game, both Booker’s reps at CAA and McKellar told ESPN.
The Suns lived up to McKellar’s prediction, taking down the Denver Nuggets in just four games. With the win, the Suns will advance to the conference finals. They will take on the winner of the Utah Jazz-Los Angeles Clippers series.

McKellar went viral after getting into a fight with Nuggets fans during Game 3. Video showed McKellar engaging in trash talk with Nuggets fan.
