Matt Bonner Announces Retirement from the NBA

by January 06, 2017

Matt Bonner announced his NBA retirement Friday afternoon, with an amusing and heartfelt video.

Bonner, 35, played 10 of his 12 seasons in San Antonio (632 games).

The Spurs opted not to re-sign Bonner last summer, and his retirement was a foregone conclusion.

Per The Players’ Tribune:

Staying true to myself, I made this mildly humorous video. Unless a professional โ€œspot shootingโ€ league miraculously crops up, I hope you will continue the support for whatever comes for me after basketball.


Yours truly,


Matt Bonner
