    Default I Never Thought I'd Say This, But I Miss Matt Bonner

    This guy is the true definition of a classy athlete. Just an all around nice guy and when mixed with the right players like now in San Antonio is an extremely valuable role player. A shame we didn't get to see him play yesterday.

    Anyhow, great interview with Matt and Eric Smith: Click here to listen

    I liked Matt. He is a very hard working player. When Colangelo took over he drafted Bargnani and traded for Nesterovic. There just wasn't much point in keeping him at that point. I am glad he is doing well.

    How many minutes did Bonner play last week? Nil (Zero)!

    Who has Bonner on his fantasy team? Me.

    The Spurs added some very nice depth in the paint this year. This is no doubt killing his PT.

    Matt Bonner isn't a rotation player but he's a good end of the bench deep reserve type.

    His role in San Antonio is a problem for the Spurs.

    Bonner was a quality guy - also tries hard and brings everything he's got to the game.

    Raps could do worse than have Bonner as a backup PF.

    I remember it was either Jalen Rose or Lamond Murray that said that the reasons the fans in Toronto liked Matt Bonner was because he was white

    Nope, it was because he was showing heart and hussle and was the bright spot in a losing team with overpayed primadonna players.
