Bonner talks 3-point contest, life on the Spurs

I’ll admit it. I was wrong about San Antonio Spurs' Matt Bonner in the three-point contest this year.

Video: Skip Bayless Jumps Off Spurs Bandwagon

After watching this clip, all I can do tip my hat in the direction of Mr. Skip Bayless for two reasons.  That was one great Stephen A. Smith impersonation that I just saw.  Also thank you for showing us what the talking heads/columnist in the media have become. In the past, analysts/columnists would voice their opinion but back it up with solid fact.  While today the most...
