Former San Antonio Spur Matt Bonner recently retired by posting a hilarious video on Twitter. Known for his red hair and his spot-up shooting from long range, the Red Mamba is a Spurs legend in his own way.

As is common when a legend retires, Bonner's "jersey" was retired. After the Spurs' game on Thursday night, the team held a "very cozy and private ceremony" to retire one of Bonner's infamous flannel shirts.

Of course Bonner loved it. He even suggested his flannel shirt should serve as a model for the NBA's next Christmas jersey.
