Unlike Tim Duncan, Matt Bonner retired from the San Antonio Spurs without much fanfare. There was no emotional ceremony for Bonner. Instead, Bonner took care of it through a retirement video, hilariously making fun of himself.
Wanting to rectify this, Manu Ginobili and the Spurs held a small retirement ceremony for Bonner on Thursday. Instead of his Bonner's jersey, they retired one of his familiar flannel shirts:
Strangely enough though, it appears Bonner did not attend the ceremony and was curious about where they came up with the shirt:
@manuginobili Wicked hilarious guys... you got me good! Whose shirt was that? 😂😂😂😂— Matt Bonner (@MattBonner_SAS) January 13, 2017
Even if that really was not Bonner's shirt, Ginobili and the Spurs gave the Red Mamba the perfect sendoff.
