From Flavortown to downtown.
The Phoenix Suns have had a plethora of celebrities grace courtside seats during their playoff run.
That includes chef and Flavortown mayor Guy Fieri. And no, he’s not there just to check out the eats at Phoenix Suns Arena.
It’s safe to say Fieri has been rallying with the Valley this postseason, showing his support for Phoenix and attending multiple playoff games.
He’s not hard to miss with those frosty tips.

Fieri continued his Phoenix fandom Thursday night. The chef was in attendance for the Suns’ 118-108 win over the Milwaukee Bucks to take a 2-0 series lead in the NBA Finals.
Obviously still jacked from watching Phoenix dismantle Milwaukee a second straight outing, Fieri stayed late for a postgame shootaround, because that’s what hoopers do.
The old mantra of “shooters shoot” was alive and well during the late-night session at Phoenix Suns Arena.

While the video showed quite a few misses behind a questionable shooting stroke, sources can confirm he made at least one shot before calling it a night.

The real question is, will he make the trip to Milwaukee for Game 3?
Start practicing, Fieri.
