I wrote that over at ESPN.com in Monday's 5-on-5 previewing Game 4 of the Spurs-Grizzlies Western Conference Finals. It was in response to a question about the most surprising thing from this series so far. It's no secret that I like Matt Bonner on a personal level. There's no air of superiority about being a professional athlete when it comes to Bonner. He's spent hours upon hours upon days in the gym perfecting his shooting motion, one of the best the game has to offer. He knows he wouldn't be here without all the work he put in. He's in total control of that. He's also probably aware that it would likely be all for naught if he wasn't 6'10″, something he has no control over.
