Red Mamba Returns
Former San Antonio Spur returns in entertaining new role
The Red Mamba is back. Former San Antonio Spur Matt Bonner will return as a studio analyst for the San Antonio Spurs' television broadcasts. Bonner joins Andrew Monaco on Fox Sports Southwest's Spurs Live show beginning Tuesday, January 10, at 7 pm for the home game against the Milwaukee Bucks.
News of Bonner joining the Spurs' broadcast team came shortly after he announced his retirement from competitive basketball. In a hilarious, bittersweet video, the New Hampshire native hosted a fake press conference at which everyone thought he retired years ago.
In fact, Bonner played for San Antonio for 10 consecutive seasons before his contract ended in 2016. Prior to that, he dedicated two years to the Toronto Raptors.
Fans of Bonner's humor, which was captured in the "Sandwich Hunter" series, will be glad to know that he will continue making short digital videos for San Antonio. He will also contribute his expertise to select San Antonio Stars and Austin Spurs games.
