The large-screened iPhone 6 lowered the three-point shot percentage of NBA player Matt Bonner
Matt Bonner's career average on three-point shots is 41.3%, but the Spurs player struggled during the last season, with a three-point shot percentage of just 36.5%. Bonner says that his lower-than-expected percentage is caused by tennis elbow, an issue that usually affects professional athletes who are repeatedly making use of their forearm muscles, such as tennis players (hence the name).
Bonner says that he suffered from the condition in his non-shooting arm for about two months and a half, and that, during this time period, he would cringe in pain right before taking each shot, which naturally led to a decrease in his three-point accuracy.
Now for the interesting part. According to Bonner, the iPhone 6 is to blame for his tennis elbow, and, as a result, for his subpar season in terms of shooting percentage. There's no point in trying to explain his explanation, so check out this quote:
At this point, it's unclear whether Bonner was referring to the iPhone 6 or the iPhone 6 Plus, but it probably doesn't matter anyway. Although some of the more hardcore Apple iPhone fans took this statement to heart, and called out to Bonner for blaming the iPhone for his lesser season, chances are that this is nothing more but a joke.
