Devin Booker tweeted Monday that he wanted to find the fan that screamed “Suns in four” after kicking some tail during Game Three. Good news: He found his guy, and his name is Nick McKellar.

After a bit of digging, “Suns in four” guy had 600 followers when he fired this DM off and now he has two lines of clothing, an action figure, and over 30,000 followers. I’ve done a lot of complaining about social media and its effects over the years, but this one is the occasional blessing.

Now, he has two lines of clothing, an action figure, AND 30K followers on IG. Modern life is crazy.
The Suns are unclear which game McKellar plans to attend since the quarterfinals matchup between the Clippers and Jazz remains unfinished. Los Angeles upset Utah last night 119-111 on the road and head back to LA up 3-2 for a Friday night closeout showdown. Regardless, we promise our lucky Suns fan won’t be able to hide from social media, and we’ll be sharing the standing ovation he’s expected to receive.
Suns in four!
