Spurs' Matt Bonner was once Drake's shooting coach

Monday October 20th, 2014

Rap star Drake did not have a very good showing when he appeared on court with the Kentucky basketball team for Midnight Madness over the weekend, airballing a three-point attempt during warmups.  However, it was not for lack of proper instruction, as he received lessons from sharp-shooting Matt Bonner while still a young actor on DeGrassi: The Next Generation.

Bonner's brother Luke jumped on Twitter to let everyone know that Matt had been called in by the Canadian teen soap to give the then-Aubrey Graham some pointers for the show's basketball scenes.

News station confuses Peyton Manning, Gary Payton

That there is no video of Matt Bonner discovering that Aubrey and Drake are the same person is truly a shame.
