better way to explain it is like this: guys who enter the contest can run to the ball during a game and catch and shoot because the motion allows them too. Bonner absolutely can't come close to that and that's something the players do during the contest.
But in the contest, the only time they run to the ball is that first sprint to the rack. After that, it's set shots until they have to go to the next rack. He'd be slow, but a shot is a shot, and he shoots a high percentage.
