    bad guy off the court, he has insulte Stephen Curry by saying that the two of them are a back court that will never work, regardless if he;s right or not there are things u don't say in sports. He is a bad egg and I not want him. Too high of a risk with the media. ]

    When it comes to the Knicks, Pubic Relations is huge and they don;t nee another saga tainting their managerial reputation.

    Let;s try to get Chris Paul, Andre Miller, and put Iman Shumpert as a 2 guard to bench Fields for a little while until he wake up from his rookie wall comma.

    Still uncertain on why Ellis is so beloved.. At this point, acquiring someone with his talents is not what we need.

    He "insults" Steph Curry by saying a backcourt with the two of them will never work, but yet...everytime one is out of the lineup...the other's numbers go thru the roof. And this past year, Ellis' numbers eclipsed Curry's on more than a handful of occasions with them out there together..and what does the front office do? Draft a dude #11 overall who is more complementary to Curry than Ellis is...so....he was right?

    He averaged 2.1 steals a game last year (third in the league) and he has unbelievable quickness...oh and he was also coached and in a system that played no defense whatsoever. If you're telling me that a dude as quick as Monta, can't stay with his guy and lead him to help...you're out of your ****ing mind.

    Ellis is a volume shooter, but he's closer to efficient than he is to inefficient.

    I have no idea why we would have OJ Mayo, or Francisco Garcia playing point guard....but I'd rather move Chauncey for CP3 or Monta....that is if we're also trying to win rings when Billups is pushing 40.

    I dunno...maybe it's me...

    When I see a dude have multiple quality games the likes of 27, 13, 4, and 4 (steals) on 9-17 shooting. I wouldn't mind having him as my PG. Yes his shots and scoring would come down...but averaging 5.6 assists a game when you are not the primary ball handler while averaging 24 points...on 45% shooting...I say why not?

    You take Steph Curry out the equation, give him talent around him like STAT & Melo, in a more traditional offense (which means MDA goes at some point) you have yourself a poor man's D. Rose. Their game is very similar, except Monta has a better shot, better footwork, and is not quite as physically strong.

    Are we now saying that we wouldn't want D. Rose to be our PG? Because both can use picks and explode to the rim, both have the court vision to find guys, both are elusive enough off the dribble that it takes more than one person to guard them, and both have good enough jumpshots that warrant not backing off on D.

    Why is Ellis so beloved? I can ask why isn't he more beloved?


    Derrick Rose MVP season: 25ppg, 7.7 assists, 4.3 rebounds, 1.0 steals, 44% FG, 32% 3PT.


    Monta Ellis: 24ppg, 5.6 assists, 3.5 rebounds, 2.1 steals, 45%FG, 36% 3PT.


    One dude did it as the primary ball handler, and the other did it in a shared back court with a dude who averaged 20 points and 6.8 assists a game.

    Is Monta still undervalued if he played on...say...the Celtics, or Spurs as opposed to the Warriors?

    monta ellis over billups any day of the week, hes not what we need? well I'm pretty sure he spreads the floor, I'm pretty sure he plays Defense averaging 2 steals a game W/ Iman and TD we would actually have a good defensive back court. I dont understand how theres even an argument here. Billups is getting too old, where was billups in the playoffs? I like billups but its a no brainer, ellis over billups. Monta ellis has been underated for years and now hes suddenly over rated lol

    If you think Warriors will trade their best player for washed up 35 year old point guard, you need to see a doctor.

    But after last night's draft...it looks like life without "The real life Michael Scofield" (look up the character if you don't get the reference) could be coming soon to the bay area.

    The only thing is, based on that offer alone, we'd need to elicit a third team.

    But we have to try....don't we? This dude is. a. BEAST. And he can play the point at a high level (put on full display when Curry was out of the lineup last season and Reggie played the 2 position.)

    Donnie...Glen....James....Jesus...anyone? Please, get this man.

    I say get a third team involved that either stocked up on young bigs in the draft or just has an extra one.... Paul Milsap anyone? The Jazz LOVE Favors, have Al, and drafted Kanter, I think a deal can be done.

    Also, GSW might be willing to do Monta a favor since it's likely that he would want to get traded to a contending team. It's gonna have to be a contending team in the Eastern Conference....no reason to willingly create a monster in your own conference that you're gonna have to compete with.

    The Knicks brass really need to be on the phone right now with Ellis' agent Fried, and the Warrior's GM. If he can be had...go get him.
    Thanks....for...the...insight, I guess?

    These boards man....these boards....

    Then we can throw in a filler player such as douglass. Its worth a try, Monta Ellis is a great player.

    Great player... Not what we need...

    If he was on this team with our roster everything would be one on one like in MIA.

    In the playoffs teams would just clog the paint and force us to shoot our way out of the game.

    Monta is just not he player we need at all. Unless he'd be willing to come off the bench or something like that, which I highly doubt. We need a legit pass-first PG.

    Monta is a scorer who can facilitate for others. He's a scorer at his core. That is his mentality basically.. We don't need another guy like that.

    And he's not a great player IMO.. Really good, not great.
