The “Suns in 4” fan is always making waves in the virtual world.
Phoenix fan Nick McKellar was seen getting into an argument with two Denver Nuggets fans during Game 3 before yelling “Suns in 4!” A prophecy that came true.
The video garnered national media attention, memes and the latest: an action figure that debuted on Friday.
Suns goaltender Devin Booker commented on the swirling attention surrounding the altercation during his media availability on Saturday afternoon.
“I watched the whole video. I didn’t expect this to turn into all he is, ”Booker said via Zoom.
Auction for the figurine began at 99 cents on Friday. On Saturday afternoon, the auction had reached $ 4,200.
In the action figure’s description on eBay, the creator of the Hands of Doom toy store said a portion of the proceeds will be donated to a local charity. The auctions end on Wednesday and it is unclear how far they will reach.
After the fight went viral, Booker contacted McKellar and allegedly sent him a signed jersey as well as tickets to the Western Conference Finals.
The shooting guard dove further into his exchange with the avid fan during his media availability on Saturday.
“He’s very fiery for this team. … If you watch the full video, you might think he’s a pretty healthy guy who had no bad intentions but was forced into this situation, ”Booker said.
McKellar will be in the crowd on Sunday for Game 1 against the Los Angeles Clippers, to which Booker said: “We are looking forward to it.”
