Default Spurs give Matt Bonner 3 year deal with a raise

Somehow this guy got more than he did last year when he sat on the bench for $2 million.

I guess he is the backup plan in case Finley and Horry have physical breakdowns.

Cant even knock the deal because its the Spurs. I think he stinks. But playing with Tim Duncan and company, under Pop. He'll look respectable.

The players on a championship team get bonuses. That's where the extra money comes from.

He's Horry's replacement for whenever he dies of old age.

And he doesn't need to be able to create his own shot. Being on the floor with Duncan and either Parker or Ginobili will give him lots of shot opportunies.

Wow, Bonner's life must be amazing. He just got a raise for sitting on the bench all season. Lucky bastard.

wow, what a lucky guy. he hasn't been allowed to contribute all that much to the team, but they must like him to give him a 3yr deal. bonner has come a long way since he was playing overseas and having him water and electricity shut off due to not having any $.
