I had a Dos Equis beer. Took a gulp. I didn’t even hear…I aint even listen to what he was saying and then I poured it on him. Actually, before that, I was like yeah shut the f**k up.
When he went to rank my chain he scratched my nose. If you’ve ever been in a fight and you get socked in your nose hard one then you’re gonna have black eyes. I don’t have black eyes. It’s a scratch he scratched my nose and everyone’s acting like I got demolished.Nuggets Fan
He says he did pour the beer on McKellar, but he says McKellar wasn’t connecting on most of the punches he was throwing.
McKellar joined Barstool Sports to explain his side of the story as well. He said he and other Suns fans were talking trash with other Nuggets fans but all in good spirits. McKellar only retaliated when the Nuggets fan began taunting him before pouring beer on him.
McKellar had this to say regarding the situation.
“These guys are walking past me, and obviously they didn’t think it was funny. 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.’”Suns Fan Nick McKellar
The Nuggets fan doesn’t feel he took a beating from McKellar. However, McKellar did get the last laugh and became an instant fan favorite in Phoenix. He also predicted the outcome of the playoff series in just four simple words.
Everybody in Phoenix is now referring to McKellar as the “Suns in four guy.” Devin Booker even reached out to get this man tickets to the Western Conference Finals. McKellar is in attendance for game one, and Suns’ fans are lining up to get a picture with him.
