Matt Bonner Hair Cut Leads To Ridiculous Suspension, Playoff Tickets

by Micah Hart

You don’t see this every day:

That would be a young man’s hair, cut to resemble Spurs forward Matt Bonner, currently the NBA’s most talented red-head (sorry Scalabrine!).

The recipient of this haircut, a Texas middle-schooler named Patrick Gonzalez, caused quite a stir this week when he had Bonner’s mug carved into his scalp. Woodlake Hills, the fuddy-duddy school he goes to, decided this was a big no-no and suspended Gonzalez for a day due to the “distraction” the haircut caused. Not a lot going on at Woodlake Hills, eh?

The story has a happy ending, however. Though Gonzalez did indeed shave his ‘do, the Spurs gave him and his family tickets to Thursday night’s Game 2, a game in which Bonner scored only two points (perhaps he was distracted by Gonzalez’s shiny head?).

Jilted tween? Or brilliant ticket-getting maneuver? You be the judge.

    Respect for the kid for even admitting that Bonner is his favourite.

    Kudos to the barber who made that but to the boy, Why Matt Bonner when there’s Brian Scalabrine?!

    Those in charge of giving him a suspention should be fired! That is the most awful reason to punish a kid over. If i was the kids parents I would be fighting with the school over this. Ive seen many different type of haircuts when i went to school, none of them got suspended for a “distraction”. Im glad he got rewarded from the spurs! This reminds me when a kid got in trouble for a “fart”. Those parents made alot of money off sueing. Retarded teachers that think these things are distracting the students when their the ones getting distracted from whats important.

  5. The Thai city is an ideal spot for rejuvenating the mind and satiating the craving with gigantic offerings. Here the glitzy malls shine in the day and bustling night markets make for the night time revelry – shopping is literally a 24/7 thing in Bangkok! However the exuberance of night markets is a forte of Bangkok and it is absolutely must for every visitor to immerse into it!!
