Meet Devon Hicks. He’s the fan who ran onto the court during the fourth quarter of Friday’s Knicks-Raptors game at the Air Canada Centre with a shirt that said “Let’s Go Raps” on the front and “Bucket List” on the rear.

Predictably, he was wrangled by security within seconds.

Yet a quick glimpse at Hicks’ Twitter feed, as unearthed by Beyond The Buzzer, reveals a remarkable level of introspection, unease and, ultimately, courage.

While video of the court invasion might be hard to come by — TV networks typically shy from broadcasting interlopers as a deterrent for would-be offenders — more than a few fans snapped photos of the episode and posted them on social media.
