I love Monta Ellis. People questioned us when we picked him a couple years back in the second round, but now people are starting to recognize his skills. I love his potential I believe he is our future.

I believe that he is a great addition to the team and an important piece of the puzzle, but the team can't be built around him.

I hope the Warriors include Monta in their long term plans...

This is the last season of his rookie contract... if he has a great season, we'll see how far the team is willing to go to keep him.

Honestly, I'm more worried about re-signing Monta than Pietrus or any other player at this point.

Who questioned him???

Both Taft and Ellis could have been first round picks. Taft was billed as a lottery pick the year before... and Ellis would have been higher up if he went to college. I thought the Warriors had a great second round last year.

Monta is great. He was spectacular at the end of the Lakers game, but Nellie brought him off the bench to make an immediate impact on the game. Monta might be thinking too hard about playing within the system. He needs to just go out there and go crazy on fools to lift the spirits of the team and the fans. We all saw it during their fourth quarter run.

Monta is definately more valuable than Pietrus right now. Monta being kept offers a great 3 guard rotation at least and that ensures the backcourt is taken care of. He is so young and will only get better. Signing him is a must

Most definitely, Monta is even a better defender than Pietrus.

Pietrus is useless. Monta is a much better investment.

Pietrus plays his role decently enough and that is a start for him. If he is useless, what can be said of dun

Which is why if Pietrus doesn't produce like Mullin would like, he's to go and Monta will be offered a better contract. I'd hate for this situation to turn out like the Arenas one.

After tonight, I temporarily retract my 'Pietrus is useless' comment until further notice (which could be as soon as tomorrow night).

Pietrus plays his role and that is of a defender and chipping in in other areas. Nelson doesn't really want him to shoot much but today he scored well and that is a plus

I don't really care about his defense, it's his rebounding that's got me happy. If he can sustatin 6-8 a game, that would rule.
