After 12 seasons in the NBA, former Gators center Matt Bonner announced his retirement Friday.

Bonner didn’t depart without a gift for his fans around the world, however. He left us with this hilarious video spoofing New Hampshire public television (check out the Gainesville shout-out at :53).

The Concord, New Hampshire, native arrived in Gainesville a relative unknown in 1999, but quickly became one of the greatest men’s basketball players in program history.

Bonner currently ranks No. 9 all-time in program history for points (1,570) and graduated after four seasons with a 3.96 grade-point average.

Under former coach Billy Donovan in 2000, Bonner helped lead Florida to a 29-8 record and the first Final Four victory in program history. 

After being selected by the Toronto Raptors, Bonner spent time in Sicily before heading back to the NBA.

His best years came during a decade-long span with the San Antonio Spurs, where he would become a two-time NBA champion.

A skillful sharpshooter, Bonner led the NBA in three-point shooting at 45.7 percent during the 2010-11 season.

Despite being retired, and a Canadian citizen, Bonner isn’t expected to leave San Antonio in the near future.
