Patrick Gonzalez, Student Forced To Shave Matt Bonner Haircut, Scores Courtside Spurs Playoffs Tickets

Posted: Updated:

Patrick Gonzalez, the 12-year-old student forced to shave off his haircut -- which was a tribute to San Antonio Spurs player Matt Bonner -- finally got some good news: The player arranged courtside seats for Gonzalez at Thursday's playoff game, KSAT-TV reports.

And if that wasn't enough excitement, Bonner also autographed several pieces of the fan's memorabilia and, according to the Associated Press, encouraged him to "keep supporting us redheads in the NBA."

Gonzalez told KSAT-TV that Bonner is one of his favorite players because they both have red hair, and hopes to get the haircut again once summer vacation begins.
