Video: Bonner on sandwich blogging, free food, retirement plans & more


One of the best perks of being an NBA player?

According to Matt Bonner, it's not the salary. (Bonner earns $3.6 million this season) nor is it playing alongside two-time MVP Tim Duncan and two-time Coach of the Year Gregg Popovich for nearly a decade. It's the free food, of course.
Bonner — known to some as the "Sandwich Hunter" or the "Red Mamba" or "Red Rocket" — sat down for an exclusive one-on-one interview with WOAI's Don Harris. He addressed his career, the rigors of sandwich blogging, his red hair turning grey, and his plans after retirement.
"The one thing I'm certain when I'm done playing basketball," Bonner said. "I want to continue being involved in basketball at some level, whether that's coaching or front office I need to find out."
