Bonner for 3?
Matt Bonner warms up before the San Antonio Spurs face off against the Boston Celtics at TD Garden; November 21, 2012.
Matt Bonner played in an NCAA Final Four, he’s been in the NBA for nine years, and the Concord High graduate could be on his way to the NBA’s 3-point shootout, if his brother Luke has anything to say about it.
Last week Luke wrote an open letter to the NBA urging the league to let his brother into the shootout, one of the highlights of the league’s All-Star weekend. The letter was published on flipcollective.com, where Luke is a regular contributor, and has taken on a life of it’s own. There is now a Facebook page dedicated to the cause as well as a petition at choice.org.
The movement has received endorsements from celebrities (Eva Longoria), politicians (New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan) and other NBA players (Yoakim Noah). For more, go to facebook.com/PutMattBonnerInTheNba3PointContest.
