Devin Booker trying to get in touch with ‘Suns in 4’ fan

Devin Booker

Devin Booker seems to be a fan of one of the team’s most confident fans.

Booker sent a message on Twitter Monday seeking the contact information for the Suns fan who went viral over the weekend.

The fan in question got into a fight with two Denver Nuggets fans during Game 3 of Phoenix’s Western Conference semifinals series win over the Nuggets. One of the two Nuggets fans sucker-punched the Suns fan, who proceeded to beat the tar out of the two men (video available here). The fan punctuated the beat down by saying confidently “Suns in 4” to the two men.

Now that the video has gone viral and the man’s prediction of a sweep came true, he’s become internet famous. Maybe Booker will invite the fan to attend the Western Conference finals.

Suns Gorilla mascot got a bloody nose after being punched by Heat fan

The Phoenix Suns Gorilla ended up with a bloody nose after taking a punch to the face because of some playful antics gone wrong.

The Gorilla was at a Dave & Buster’s in Tempe, Arizona on Tuesday night for an event and tried high-fiving a fan. The fan didn’t participate because he’s a Heat fan, and the mascot responded with a playful kick. The Heat fan had a completely normal reaction: He punched the mascot in the face.

The Gorilla, played by someone different from the game-day mascot, ended up with a bloody nose. A police report was filed, though both parties agreed not to press charges.

Between the Suns Gorilla and the Cavaliers’ Moondog, we’re seeing way too many mascots on the DL these days. That’s why the mascots usually plan out their skits to ensure they’re dealing with someone who won’t deck them.
