Its obvious Monta is the present and the future for the Warriors for the next decade so I wonder if hes gonna get a nickname? Is he gonna be that good? If so what are some suggestions?

I was thinking mighty mouse, but its kinda lame, plus the og mighty mouse is still playing.

And i was thinking of a name change and get inot the A.D. era (After Dunleavy) and i wanted to have it to do with Monta somehow. Yes i have a huge man-crush on Monta. I would say hes the most natural pure talent the Warriors have ever had.

Nicknames?

I've heard a few ones... Money Monta (terrible), Lightning Quick (better, but still not great)... gotta have to think about it.

We may post a few ones here and then make a poll to choose the best one.

Good Idea about the poll. I bet Shaq could give us a few.

I think "Malice", would be a cool nickname for him, kind of combines Monta and Ellis into a cool star name

Yep... although you can't deny that "Count Montula" is enticing. :mrgreen:

Im not good at nickname,s never have been. But I like "flash" but Wade gots that one, unles Wade goes to Robin full-time.

Mellis sounds cool but doesnt really mean to much. I never liked the JRich, TMac name abbreviation. We should copy a MMA nickname. Like Monta "Ice Man" Ellis.

"Pound for Pound" too long for a nickname?

Nice, we'd have the Baron and The Count. If we draft Wayne Ellington in the next draft, trade for lebron, and sign dennis rodman we could start

G - The Baron
G - The Count
G - The Duke
F - The King
F - The Queen

Like that old song goes....."They just call him The Streak".

Actually I just found the words to the whole song and they are hilarious. There's even mention of a basketball game in one of the stanzas...lol

RAY STEVENS

THE STREAK - 15/06/1974
1 week at #1 - 12 weeks on chart

Hello, everyone, This is your Action News reporter
With all the news that is news across the nation on the scene at the supermarket
There seems to have been some disturbance here
Pardon me, sir, did you see what happened

Yeah, I did. I's standin' over there by the tomaters and here he comes
Runnin' through the pole beans, through the fruits ''n' vegetables
Nekked as a jaybird
'n' I hollered over t'Ethel, I said "DON'T LOOK, ETHEL", 'n' it's too late
She'd already been INcensed

(Here he comes)
Looka dat, looka dat
(There he goes)
Looka dat, looka dat
(And he ain't wearin' no clothes)

Whoa, yes they call him The Streak
(Looka dat, looka dat)
Fastest thing on two feet
Looka dat, looka dat
He's just as proud as he can be of his anatomy
He gun give us a peek
Oh, yes they call him The Streak
(Looka dat, looka dat)
He likes to show off his physique
(Looka dat, looka dat)
If there's an audience to be found
He'll be streakin' A-round invitin' public critique

This is your Action News reporter once again and we're here at the gas station
Pardon me, sir, did you see what happened

Yeah, I did
I's just in here gettin' my tawres checked 'n' he just appeared outta the back
Come streakin' around the grease rack there-didn't have nuthin on but a smile
I looked at her and Ethel was gettin' 'er a cold drink
I hollered "DON'T LOOK, ETHEL" But it's too late, she'd already been MOONED
Flashed her right there in front of the shock absorbers

(He ain't crude)
(Looka dat, looka dat)
(He ain't rude)
(Looka dat, looka dat)
(He's just in the mood to run in the nude)

Whoa, yes they call him The Streak
(Looka dat, looka dat)
He likes to turn the other cheek
(Looka dat, looka dat)
He's always makin' the news wearin' just his tennis shoes
Guess you could call him unique

Once again, your Action News reporter in the booth at the gym
Covering the disturbance at the basketball playoff
Pardon me, sir, did you see what happened

Yeah, I did
Halftime, I's just goin' down there to get Ethel a snow cone
Here he come, right outta the cheap seats, dribblin'
Right down the middle of the floor
Didn't have on nothin' but his Keds
Made a hook shot and got out through the concession stand
I hollered up at Ethel, I said "DON'T LOOK, ETHEL"
Too late. She'd already got a free shot
Grandstand. Right there in front of the home team

(Whoa, yes they call him The Streak)
Here he comes again
(Looka dat, looka dat)
Who's that with him
(Fastest thing on two feet)
"Ethel! Is that you Ethel
(Looka dat, looka dat)
(He's just as proud as he can be)
What do you think you're doin
(Of his anatomy )
(He gonna give us a peek)
You get your clothes on
Whoa, yes they call him The Streak
"Ethel, where you goin'"
(He likes to show off his physique)
"Ethel, you shameless hussy"
(If there's an audience to be found)
(He'll be streakin' A-round)
(Invitin' public critique)
Say it isn't SO, Ethel
"ETHEL"

Malice-1. desire to inflict injury, harm, or suffering on another, either because of a hostile impulse or out of deep-seated meanness: the malice and spite of a lifelong enemy.
2. Law. evil intent on the part of a person who commits a wrongful act injurious to others.

I like the fact it kinda sounds like his name, but the meaning doesnt really fit to well.

before i read your post i did the same thing, i went to dictionary.com to get the exact definition knowing that it wasn't something that fit ellis.
ellis is known for being soft spoken, kind, and very humble. malice is pretty much the opposite... no good... i like one i came up with a while ago MONTA BLAZE

Monta Blaze- Thats cool too. Little to marijuany for me. Ha. But from your name it seems like thats why u like it. Blaze is cool, second best one so far in my opinion.

The Streak. I like this one the best so far. I didnt read the whole song so not sure what it means. But "The Streak" is cool, implies hes quick, streak could mean consistent.

Keep'em coming.
