Matt Bonner vs. Arcade Fire's Win Butler

Posted By on Thu, Sep 22, 2011 at 3:42 PM

With their flamboyant stage antics and sparkly costumes, Arcade Fire looks more like a pep squad than a team of hardcore ballers. But 6'4" frontman Win Butler is a known basketball junkie (he even allegedly stole some dude's basketball once) and shoots hoops at every opportunity. So it's no surprise that Butler would participate in a charity basketball game with NBA players such as Spurs forward Matt Bonner. What is surprising is that Butler beat Bonner in a 3-point shootout. Bonner and Arcade Fire have some history (as the NBA's "most indie" player, Bonner interviewed the Canadian band back in February), and after the 3-point contest loss, Bonner goes after Butler to clinch the final victory. But, hey, let's keep this beef going! Can you say "rematch?"
