Fan kicked out by Roy Williams gets front row seats at Duke

The Cameron Crazies lived up to their reputation as the most creative student section in the nation on Saturday by inviting a certain guest of honor to sit in the front row for Duke's rivalry game against North Carolina.

It was none other than Brian King, the Presbyterian fan North Carolina coach Roy Williams infamously booted out of the Dean Dome earlier this season after King screamed "Miss it, Deon!" while Deon Thompson was shooting free throws.

"I had a lot of people reach out to me after what happened," King told the Raleigh News & Observer. "Now that time has passed, this just looked like fun."

King, a Presbyterian alum, actually grew up a Duke fan, so he no doubt enjoyed watching the Devils break their home losing streak against the Tar Heels. He did emphasize that he has "absolutely no hard feelings" toward Williams, adding, "The whole thing is something everyone can laugh about now."

Something else we can all laugh about unless you're a North Carolina fan is this sign from Cameron on Saturday night referencing Williams' unfortunate Haiti comparison from last month.

It read: "Text 90999 to donate $10 the UNC BBall disaster relief fund."
