Forward for the NBA team San Antonio Spurs, Matt Bonner while speaking to Yahoo in an interview has mentioned that his long standing elbow injury was caused due to prolong usage of the Apple iPhone 6 Plus. As bizarre as it may sound, this was an actual claim made by Bonner, who said that he was taken aback with the increase in the device size, coming from an older iPhone.
Here’s what his full interview said – “I hate to make excuses, I was raised to never make excuses, but I went through a two-and-a-half month stretch where I had really bad tennis elbow, and during that stretch it made it so painful for me to shoot I’d almost be cringing before I even caught the ball like, ‘Oh, this is going to kill.’ Everybody is going to find this hilarious, but here’s my theory on how I got it. 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.”
Apple is yet to comment on this and it’s unlikely that we’ll hear anything from the company on the matter. Perhaps Bonner would find the sweet spot with the 4.7 inch iPhone 6, where the buttons aren’t that hard to reach.
