He wouldn't win, but he wouldn't embarrass himself. It's not like the traditional shooters aren't doing set shots either. Once they get to the rack, they are shooting set shots, just grabbing the ball from the rack and shooting in rhythm, just like getting a good pass in a game. Bonner's release takes milliseconds longer and it would keep him from finishing all the racks, but I think it would be a good showing. Larry Bird's shot was slightly different but that didn't slow him down (not comparing the two, aw who am I kidding, Bonner's a Bird clone!).
