In the spirit of the NBA playoffs, 6th grader Patrick Gonzalez paid tribute to his favorite San Antonio Spurs player by having Matt Boner’s picture shaved into the back of his head… but now Gonzalez in trouble with the school for being a distraction. “My 1st period teacher called the principal. She told her it was a distraction,” said Gonzalez.
Gonzalez is in trouble with the administration despite his mom asking for permission beforehand, “I didn’t want any kind of problems with any of the principals. I know there are rules and regulations anywhere else you go,” Mrs. Gonzalez told local news.

Despite the hairy situation, the Spurs lead the series 1-0 against the Los Angles Clippers.
