NBA Twitter was blessed with an incredible video during the Phoenix Suns–Denver Nuggets series that showed a Suns fan beating down a pair of Nuggets fans before boldly shouting “Suns in 4.”
As it turned out, the fan’s prediction was correct and now we are learning what led to the now-viral altercation.
The fan, Nick McKellar, broke his silence and said that he was not the one who instigated the fight. Instead, McKeller claims the Nuggets fans threw beer on him before he unleashed his fists.“These guys are walking past me and obviously they didn’t think it was funny,” McKellar said, via TMZ Sports. “Meanwhile the whole crowd that I made friends with, initially they were laughing, having a good time.”“I wasn’t being annoying. So, these guys were like, ‘You know what, I’m taking offense to this.'”
The self-defense narrative never looked so good.
