Guy Fieri calls it ‘Suns in 7’ over Bucks

Jul 20, 2021, 12:21 PM

The mayor of Flavortown has spoken.

Celebrity chef Guy Fieri, who has attended multiple Phoenix Suns games during their run to the NBA Finals, believes that the Valley team will rally against the Milwaukee Bucks.

Hours before Game 6 of the Finals on Tuesday, Fieri made his call on Twitter, predicting “Suns in 7.”

Is it official to call him a Suns fan?

Few celebrities of late have showed up — in person or on social media — in support of the Arizona team as much as Fieri, who has been a presence as a courtside observer for games at the Suns’ home.

He has attended games as a reward to his son, Ryder, who by his father’s side has been supporting the Suns this playoff run, Fieri told The Arizona Republic’s Bill Goodykoontz.

The father-son duo even got the privilege of getting shots up on Phoenix’s home court following Game 2 of the NBA Finals series, which the Suns won.

Fieri was first spotted in Phoenix during Game 1 of the conference semifinals against the Denver Nuggets, when he got out of his seat to celebrate a poster dunk by Suns center Deandre Ayton.

Now, Suns fans can hope Fieri’s prediction gives their team, which is down 3-2 and facing elimination, a little bump in luck after three straight losses.

Game 6 of the NBA Finals at Fiserv Forum tips off at 6 p.m. and will air on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station.
