Matt Bonner blames down shooting season on iPhone 6
Matt Bonner, a career 41.1 percent 3-point shooter, shot just 36.5 percent from beyond the arc last season – his lowest mark in seven years and the second lowest of his career.

“Everybody is going to find this hilarious, but here’s my theory on how I got it,” he said. “When the new iPhone came out it was way bigger than the last one, and I think because I got that new phone it was a strain to use it, you have to stretch further to hit the buttons, and I honestly think that’s how I ended up developing it.”Before you start laughing (or at least when you finish), know that this is not unprecedented. Bonner said he spoke with one of the Spurs’ strength and conditioning coaches about the injury and the coach reported that he had suffered a similar injury after spending too much time playing a game on his phone.
Bonner is a free agent, and the Clippers – owned by Apple-loathing Steve Ballmer – need a center. Seems like a perfect match.
