Matt Bonner, in a fun mailbag on Hardwood Paroxysm:
A couple of weeks ago, there was this obnoxious fan randomly sitting 5 rows behind the bench. The whistle blows and the horn sounds for the first media timeout. At this point in the game, it’s usually quiet as most people are still trying to find their seats and get settled. So, Coach Pop comes to the bench and starts drawing up a play.
Meanwhile, this guy starts screaming, “Put in Bonner! We want Bonner! Come on Pop! Put him in the game!!!”
Coach Pop stopped in the middle of drawing the play, looks up at me and says, “Matty, I didn’t know your dad was coming to the game?”
