Former Toronto Raptor Matt Bonner was the top student at his New Hampshire high school, and continued to score high marks at the University of Florida, graduating with a business degree and an impressive 3.96 grade point average. Bonner never got a mark lower than an 'A' until college, where he finished with a 'B' in Chemistry. These days, rather than plotting chemical solutions, Bonner is putting his business training to good use as vice-president of the NBA Players Association, working to solve the NBA lockout.
