Monta is a better creator, passer and better defender, overall. If JRich were to go in the above trade I mentioned for KG, Garnett would cover the rebounding much better, Monta would start and give what he does and the team overall would be better. JRich is one of my favourite players but I understand how many think he is the one to be traded as Baron has been the catalyst for the turn around late this season, Monta has been unbelievable and rebounding and defense are major weaknesses of the team
We're watching different players, buddy.
Monta is a worst shooter (.268 against .321, and J-Rich's is worse than it should be, due to his constant injuries), worst rebounder... and if he's a better defender or creator is arguable (for example, he doubles J-Rich's turnovers). He's also 6-3 (against the J-Rich's 6-6). I love Monta's potential, but I think he's a bit overrated right now.
I mean, he still has to prove all that potential. J-Rich has already done so. I think it would be a big mistake to bank everything on Monta above J-Rich. I still don't know what position Monta should play, to be honest.
