  • Matt Bonner of the San Antonio Spurs announced his retirement from the NBA

Former Florida forward Matt Bonner announced his retirement from the National Basketball Association after more than a decade in the league on Friday - but the way he did it, with a public access television-spoofing YouTube video that is equal parts sweet and self-deprecating, is so authentically Bonner that it hurts.

Empty red seats are then shown, with crickets chirping in the background.

Bonner remains the 10th-leading scorer in Florida history, with his total of 1,570 points passed by only Erving Walker and Kenny Boynton in the years since.

"The 6'10" big men closes his career with averages of 5.8 points (41.4 percent from 3FG), and 3.0 rebounds.

The 36-year-old announced the news in a humorous video posted on The Players Tribune on Friday.

Overnight: Partly cloudy with a low of 23 and north northeast 10-mph wind turning east southeast after midnight. Temperatures are expected to reach close to 50 degrees with rain likely and a slight chance of thunderstorms.

Bonner gives a shout out to "The T-Dot" (Toronto) and "The Hammer" (Hamilton) and "everywhere else in Canada", and "anyone else who supported me in any location you did so".

The San Antonio Spurs announced today that former Spurs forward Matt Bonner will join the TV broadcast team as a studio analyst.

Bonner, who-trivia!-was the first New Hampshire-born player to make the NBA, tried to get his Canadian citizenship to play for the national team. He played in just 30 games a year ago, averaging under seven minutes.

I made a video. With the Spurs won National Basketball Association championships in '07 and '14 and experienced his most productive years, including 2010-11 when he led the National Basketball Association in 3PT shooting at 45.7 per cent.

He was drafted by the Chicago Bulls in 2003, but was traded to the Toronto Raptors on the same night he was drafted. He is now fifth in three-point percentage among players who played for the Spurs for more than one season.
