ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Matt Bonner may be a career NBA player who has made plenty of money throughout his career, but above all else, he’s a practical dude. He likes playing chess (above), sandwiches, baby carrots — the simple things in life.
So it’s no surprise that when it came time for Matt Bonner to get a new ride, he didn’t go with a fancy sedan or some luxury vehicle. After trying a few foreign cars, the new official car of Matt Bonner is… an American-made 2014 Chevy Impala. He gave his reasons to the San Antonio Express News…
“The leg room is far superior, which is basically No. 1. No. 2, it has over 300 horse power, which is plenty for me. And it still gets 29 MPGs, which is pretty good for a mid-size model. It had all the same technology packages. It has ventilated seats. It’s very luxurious.”
Bonner is obviously completely satisfied with his new car. Until, that is, a media member who shall remain nameless floated the idea of having his semi-famous red mamba snake head painted on the hood.
“Wow, I didn’t even think of that,” he said. “That’s awesome. I feel if I did that my car would be stolen in a week, though. Everyone would want it.”
