Bors was Lancelot's cousin and was one of only three knights to achieve the Grail Quest - along with Galahad and Percival. So he was one of the most virtuous of the Knights of the Round Table...yeah, kind of an odd choice. You're right about the rabbit though, and in T.H. White's version he's kind of a dick.
