NBA Player Says His Injury Is Because His iPhone Is Too Big

If you own a large screen device, you didn’t do it by accident. You bought it because you knew you wanted a big screen to get things done on or for better media comsuption. However with that big screen comes issues. Whether that be limited one-handed use, or the inability to reach certain things on the screen without performing hand gymnastics. That’s something iPhone users are finally getting a taste of with Apple’s latest releases. However one of those issues isn’t usually injuries, unless you’re a 6′ 10″ NBA player.

San Antonio Spurs player Matt Bonner has recently run into issues with his non-shooting arm elbow. He claims the pain in his elbow was a huge distraction throughout the season. However it’s his reason that brings this story even further. Bonner says that because the new iPhone is too big. Bonner did not confirm whether or not he uses an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus.

Everybody is going to find this hilarious, but here’s my theory on how I got it,” he said. “When the new iPhone came out it was way bigger than the last one, and I think because I got that new phone it was a strain to use it, you have to stretch further to hit the buttons, and I honestly think that’s how I ended up developing it.

Whether or not the size of the iPhone was actually to blame in this case, it’s a hilarious story. Hopefully Bonner will just decide to go back to a 4″ iPhone so that he can play without pain next season.
