The bond between redheads is an unbreakable, everlasting bond that transcends space and time, so it comes as no surprise that when middle-schooler Patrick Gonzalez wanted to show off his love for his hometown San Antonio Spurs, he chose to honor the player he admires most—fellow redhead Matt Bonner, aka the Red Rocket.
The San Antonio superfan had the image of the Spurs center preparing to launch a 3-pointer shaved into the back of his head, an act that while noble and unique may land him in trouble with school officials because Gonzalez’s “Bonner Cut” has been deemed a distraction. Officials for Judson I.S.D. have said on record that if Gonzalez comes to school on Thursday with his awesome haircut in tact he may be in line for an in-school suspension.
That haircut is distracting though…and by distracting I mean totally boss. Look, it’s on the back of his head, so the only people that are going to see it are those lucky kids seated behind Gonzalez, and answer me this—when given the option of learning fractions or Shakespeare or something educational versus gazing longingly at a hair masterpiece of Spurs forward Matt Bonner, which option do you think most middle-school kids would choose?
From Fox San Antonio…
Gonzalez (Patrick’s mother) says she came to the front office to ask permission. School leaders say she mentioned the haircut, but they never gave her the OK. “There was no permission that was given if the parent thought that then it was a miscommunication,” said Aubrey Chancellor, Judson I.S.D. District officials say the haircut is a distraction. “Whether it’s the spurs or whether it’s the cowboys anything people obviously support, it doesn’t matter.”
Give ‘em hell Aubrey Chancellor! This blatant disregard for the rules regarding distracting haircuts that support professional teams currently in the playoffs must come to an end! Or, and hear me out school officials at Judson I.S.D., maybe, just maybe you could let the kid’s haircut slide because the Spurs are rolling in the NBA playoffs and really, how offensive or distracting could a Matt Bonner haircut be?
About as offensive or distracting as Matt Bonner in real life, and that ain’t squat.

One San Antonio Spurs fan took his love for power forward Matt Bonner just a little too far, at least according to his middle school.
Patrick Gonzalez shaved a picture of Bonner into his red hair for the Spurs' playoff push.
But there was a problem when he went to Woodlake Hills Middle School with the new haircut.
"My first period teacher called the principal," Gonzalez...
On the heels of the man who chose to have Tony Parker’s image shaved onto his dome, we have a child trying to one-up him and get into trouble with his school at the same time. San Antonio superfan, Patrick Gonzalez, wanted to show his ode to fellow Ginger in the most remarkable way: “Because he’s my favorite player, [...]
By now you have heard about the young San Antonio Spurs fan getting a hair cut of Matt Bonner's face. However, the Bonner-cut didn't sit well with his school's administration and was suspended for the look.
And as dumb as the school's ruling was, Bonner chimed in with an easy solution to the issue - move him to the back of the classroom.
Check out what "The...
Gregg Popovich is the most accomplished head coach in the NBA. He is a two-time Coach of the Year and has coached the San Antonio Spurs to four championships during his time with the organization but there is one thing missing from his resume. Now I don’t want to give the impression that this missing item is something major that will determine his legacy because it won’t or at...
SAN ANTONIO It looked reckless, this shot Tim Duncan took. It looked awkward and flailing. It looked like he was hoping for a bailout call. It looked like it had no chance.
It looked a lot like something Blake Griffin would do, actually.
Except Duncan made it.
Duncan's sloppy falling layupy thing came with about six minutes left in the San Antonio Spurs' 108-92 win...
The 2011-12 San Antonio Spurs team is stacked and their depth is staggering. From rookie Kawhi Leonard, the "Big 3," to having Stephen Jackson, Manu Ginobili, Boris Diaw, Tiago Splitter, Gary Neal come off the bench, there is no doubt San Antonio's roster can be intimidating for any opposing team. Much of this is due to Spurs GM R.C. Buford.
Buford was able to create...
Our friends at Project Spurs were kind enough to alert us to a new Tim Duncan interview with Sports Illustrated's Chris Ballard.
Ballard's reliable sources claim Duncan hates Garnett:
In fact, Duncan hates Kevin Garnett. Hates him the way liberals hate Sean Hannity. This information comes from very reliable sources, who talk about how KG has made a career of trying to...
The San Antonio Spurs picked up right where they left in sweeping Utah by picking apart the Los Angeles Clippers in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals Tuesday night. San Antonio pulled away in the fourth quarter to win 108-92 and take the 1-0 series lead. It marked the fifth consecutive playoff win for the Spurs and 15th victory in a row dating back to the regular season...
SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Tony Parker scored 22 points on his 30th birthday, Tim Duncan had 18 and the San Antonio Spurs beat the fading Los Angeles Clippers 105-88 on Thursday night, pushing their winning streak to 16 and taking a 2-0 lead in their Western Conference semifinal series.
Chris Paul responded to his awful Game 1 with only a slightly better encore, scoring 10 points as the...
The Spurs and Clippers both had different routes to the second round, as the Spurs easily dispatched the Jazz in four games while the Clippers were taken to seven games by the Grizzlies. The Spurs have been off for over a week, while the Clippers won their series on Sunday.

At the age of 36, San Antonio Spurs forward Tim Duncan can no longer reach the heights consistently that he could five years ago; however as he demonstrated to the Los Angeles Clippers Tuesday night at the AT&T Center, he is still capable of dominating a game in the Association. The former NBA MVP looked like he was in his prime as he notched a double-double, knocking down...
Air Diaw10) From watching these first two games, you'd never guess that Chris Paul is actually any good9) When Tim Duncan looks quick and comfortable, the Spurs' opponents really don't have a chance in hell8) If Blake Griffin is going to continue to get one more rebound than a dead man, we're going to really have to start calling him a power forward7) ESPN cared so...
SAN ANTONIO –The Los Angeles Clippers are in trouble. When that is evident in Game 1 of a series it’s hard to reconcile some sort of path to victory for them when the truth is standing in the middle of the court.
