Even though he didn’t win, San Antonio Spurs' Matt Bonner impressed/surprised us all on All-Star Saturday night with his performance in the three-point shootout. He made it to the finals before falling just short against Kyrie Irving.
"The Red Rocket," now the "Red Mamba," proved to everyone that he deserved to be there and probably earned himself an invitation to next year’s three-point shootout. That is if he wants to re-launch the #LetBonnerShoot campaign in 2014.
Win or lose, Bonner gained a lot of support from fans and of course, he had his teammates behind him as well.
Danny Green posted a picture to his instagram wearing the now famous “Red Mamba” t-shirt.
“Shout out to Matty B for makin us proud win/lose #redmamba #allstar”
I’m not sure how many Matt Bonner jerseys have been sold, but I’m going to guess that this shirt outsells jerseys by a wide margin. However, will you buy this Bonner shirt?
What would be even better is if the Spurs did a “red out” and everyone at the AT&T center got one of these shirts. I don’t see that happening, but wouldn’t it be pretty awesome?
