San Antonio Spurs' Matt Bonner is a fan favorite with his quirky sense of humor, and an all-around good guy image. However, on the court, he is seen as simply a three-point threat and the word "athletic" doesn't come to mind when describing his game. Or should it?
Apparently in high school, Bonner was quite the dunker. Check out video (h/t Phil over at Orlando Magic Daily for passing this along) of "Air" Bonner showing off an array of dunks, getting some epic hang time and bringing down the house with flair. I got to say, Matt had some major hops in his younger days especially in the Kenny Smith-like dunk which sealed the contest. Now if only he can treat Spurs fans with one of these dunks in a game.
However, this isn't the first time Bonner showed off his dunking skills. Who can forget this dunk he had on his former team Toronto?

When Tim Duncan signed his contract extension with the San Antonio Spurs over the summer, everyone knew he would take whatever money the team offered him. He has played his whole career in San Antonio, wants to stay a Spur, wants to retire a Spur.
Duncan signed on for three more years with the team, with an option for the final year, but it might not have been worth as much as...
Not only is it a brand new season for the San Antonio Spurs, it also means a brand new collection of HEB commercials from the Spurs' "Big 3" of Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker.
From the trio working out and giving their muscles the corniest of nicknames to laundry day, these commercials always bring the laughs.
Check out three of the latest commercials...
Tony Parker, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili each have signed contracts with the Spurs for less than they would likely receive on the open market.
SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- The San Antonio Spurs have won four NBA championships, made 32 playoff appearances and captured 18 division titles in their 40-year history.
Yet for all their success, they had never opened a season with four straight victories.
Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and the Spurs finally did so Monday night, rolling past the Indiana Pacers 101-79 to remain unbeaten.
The San Antonio Spurs extended their winning streak to three games in a row early in the new NBA season with a 110-100 win over the Utah Jazz at the AT&T Center.

Duncan and Parker combined to score seven points in the final 4 minutes to preserve the victory and give the Spurs their best start since the 2007-2008 season.
On Saturday, Utah Jazz guard-forward Gordon Hayward scored 15 points on 11 shot attempts in a 110-100 loss to the San Antonio Spurs in the AT&T Center. In the game, Hayward was faced against both a player he looked up to growing up in Manu Ginobili, and a young defensive product in Kawhi Leonard.
After the game, I caught up with Hayward in the locker room where he spoke highly...
The San Antonio Spurs are looking for their best start to a season in five years, and now they may have Manu Ginobili back.
A matchup with the Utah Jazz could help them remain unbeaten.
With Ginobili possibly available, the Spurs attempt to continue their dominance of the Jazz on Saturday night after sweeping them out of the playoffs last season.

Tonight's game will also be a home coming of sorts for for mer Spur George Hill. Hill was part of the...
Throughout his stellar NBA career, Spurs' Tim Duncan has been one of the best defenders in the league. Whether it be snagging a key rebound to making that all-important defensive stop, TD surely brings the defense whenever San Antonio needs to stop an opposing team from thinking they got a chance a beating the men in black.
And although the Spurs won their third in a row...
The San Antonio Spurs (3-0) have now won three games in a row to kickoff the 2012-13 NBA season with a 110-100 win over the Utah Jazz. Danny
