Found May 17, 2012 on The Jersey Chaser:

In the spirit of the NBA playoffs, 6th grader Patrick Gonzalez paid tribute to his favorite San Antonio Spurs player by having Matt Boner’s picture shaved into the back of his head… but now Gonzalez in trouble with the school for being a distraction. “My 1st period teacher called the principal. She told her it was a distraction,” said Gonzalez.

 Gonzalez is in trouble with the administration despite his mom asking for permission beforehand, “I didn’t want any kind of problems with any of the principals. I know there are rules and regulations anywhere else you go,” Mrs. Gonzalez told local news.

But Bonner is coming to the defense of the young fan,  “Couldn’t you just move him to the back of the class?” Bonner said.“Then nobody would see it; it wouldn’t be a distraction. Otherwise, the nicest thing a fan has ever done for me is ruined.”

Despite the hairy situation, the Spurs lead the series 1-0 against the Los Angles Clippers.
