Please. Stop dividing the Warriors fans with that talk. There are many valid concerns about Monta and I doubt anyone will be upset if he steps up and becomes the player we all hoped he would be.

oh man! you're right dude! I have seen the light!!
It was your post that did it too...

:roll:


He did play great tonight though! :D


The point is Ellis is capable of playing like that, won't say every game but has the ability to do so every game. Maybe now some fans can chill on the Monta hate, well maybe for a week. :mrgreen:

Monta stepped up big on both sides of the ball. Great D on Brandon Roy and he was just unstoppable on offense. And Morrow! Get him more shots, please. Oh, and how about this Chris Hunter fella? I liked what I saw from him.

Good job fellas. Nice to see a fight in you despite everything going on.

Well the point of the matter is this, some fans go over-board in here, there was little doubt about in my mind about Monta's game, speed, reason being he has been a warrior since he was drafted 4 years ago, so we have plenty of observation of the type of player he is. Ask Beastmode and First-off, as they were the few who supported Monta, when majority bashed dude.

He deserves getting bashed. He wrecked his moped and screwed us over last year and then he can't keep his mouth shut this season. Even now after the game reporters were asking Nelson about Monta's comments and whether or not he had decided to be the leader of this team and Nelson could just tell them "go ask him."

Monta has great talent but he needs to stop doing stupid stuff. Stay away from motorcycles and learn how to deal with the media instead of running your frickin' mouth.

Hating too much?...

1st off, damnnn. Very nice win. If Monta could play defense like that consistently , its small-ball anyday.

About the Monta situation, i know some people is turning on him because his comments to the media about he and curry could never work, and of course his arguement with Nelson "why he get blame for everything and why he wont do it".

I always thought Monta was very talented and still was even after the injury. People still need to give him time and gains little more maturity. Although I felt it was natural that he becomes the leader but his comment on Jack's trade gave us the idea that he doesnt want to lead this team.

Still his game today shows that he will step up and Im glad. The only thing Im not liking about him right now is he gets the tendency to take bad shots and the inefficiency. But overall I hope he transform to the player we all hoped he would be.

See you are falling in the theatrics and soap opera of media, yes Monta had the Moped incident, but it was never his intention to get injured. We should all be upset at Azu, Beans, and Turiaf as well since they are all injured for extended period of time. I have never heard Monta complain about wanting out as a warrior, infact its always the opposite, but hey people its basketball believe what you want. All I know is Monta has that special speed, and if that jumper starts falling, I excpect more good things from him.

Oh c'mon dude! Monta crashed a vehicle he is by contract not even allowed to be riding, in the off-season, and then he LIED about it... and you're comparing his injury to those of his teammates who sustained injury while playing the game of basketball? I mean... really?

And Monta's interviews have been horrible of late. He needs to learn to keep his mouth shut instead of telling reporters that he's not going to take any extra on his back. He's paid to be the leader of this team. He took the team on his back tonight and if he'd just STFU in the locker room no one could say a thing about the dude.

He's a great talent who has his own challenges being too small to play the traditional off-guard spot. Instead of mouthing off in pre-season about not being able to play with Steph and then mouthing off during the season about not taking on any extra he should just play his damn game.

"I'm the leader. It starts with me. Everything starts with me," Ellis told the Boston Globe. "Making sure everybody gets involved in the game. Making sure everybody knows the plays. Making sure everybody starts the game off right. Yeah, that's me. I've got to get that back into my head that I am the piece of the puzzle. I am the head leader. It all starts with me, so I've got to get everybody going, get this franchise back to who I know we can (be)."


Tell me how that was a bad interview or quote from Monta, this after game against the Celtics, so its recent, just seem to me your perspective has been set on Monta and is blurry with negativity.

An unintentional injury is just that, unintentional, at the end of the day its an injury. They should have just boxed Monta up in bubble wrap so he stays injury free, not get in a car or fly cause who knows what could happen. He lied to try and cover himself and it failed, because it was more serious than he thought, am sure you perfect that you have never lied to a teacher or employer to cover yourself, right :mrgreen:

At the end of the day this is basketball, with his skill set Monta will continue playing people, and more and more will jumo right back on the band-wagon.

oh man, this was an AAAAWWWWWEEEESSSSSSOOOOOMMMMMMEEEE game to go to...

First off,
I went to a game and we didn't lose!!!!!!!! that's never happened before :) I lost my voice yelling but about the second qtr and it hurt everytime after that, but it was soooo worth it.

observations:
-I don't know how well it was portrayed on camera, but Roy and Ellis were doing some trash talking back and fourth. Come third qtr it was an epic battle of talented tweener guard vs slightly taller talented tweener guard. Ellis was on a mission to shut Roy down tonight and he did. At one point he ran all the way across the court to pull morrow off Roy, so he could guard him. I really really hope we see this effort on a consistent basis. oh and I heard he got 30 tonight.... not too shabby at all!

-Alderidge has nothing against maggs, that's right I said it. Maggs put in some serious work on the defensive end and it really really showed. I don't know what his offensive numbers looked like cause I literally just got home, but I know defensively he was just doing work son. Aldridge could rarely est position and when he did still had a hard time getting a shot "up" over maggs who is 4" to 5" inches shorter.

-Hunters block on Oden - fuckin awesome. I was embarrassed to say I had no idea who that center on the warriors was sitting inbetween two portland fans. I soon found out. don't get it twisted - I don't know if "he can shoot" yet. he shot one or two and they went in. that happens. doesn't really mean to much. I was just happy to see that Oden wasn't being guarded by Moore any more (when randolph was out). will figure out what he has or lacks talent wise in a few more games.

-Curry was really fighting for those boards and he really impressed me in that aspect. He got schooled by blake on one drive to the basket, and it's clear that he's still got a metric ass load of work to do on that end. but I see consistent effort which makes me happy.

-Morrow - probably the most frustrating thing of watching the warriors play is there use of morrow. one night he's 5/6 from 3pt range, then next he gets 4 shots total. if we are down try to get it to him. if we are up try to get it to him. it's simple.

Man I'm soo happy to see the first home game w/o jackson - it was just awesome. have I said that already

oh yeah and finally, my friend/date for the evening was a huge blazzers fan and I got to rub her face in it all night long!

Play nice you two

That's not a bad interview. This is a bad interview.

Monta Ellis Doesn’t Sound Happy

By Marcus Thompson
Monday, November 16th, 2009 at 9:27 pm in Uncategorized.

Here is Ellis’ take on the Stephen Jackson trade situation. Interesting to say the least.

What did you think when you found out?

“(laughs) It was amazing to me. I couldn’t believe it at first. It is what it is, man. I’m gonna miss him. We gonna miss him. I went to see him before he left. It seemed like he was happy. As long as he’s happy, I’m happy.”

How tough will it be to lose one of your best players?

“It was tough when we had him. (laughs) Losing him, it’s going to be tough. But we’ve got to find a way to get through it, man. I wish him the best. Now, it’s on us. That’s what they wanted, so they got it.”

Will you have to do more to make up for the loss?

“I’m not (going to) put no more on my back. Somebody else gonna have to step up. I’m not gonna do more, somebody else gonna have to step up and take on the role that Jack had and be that player. But I’m not putting no more extra on my back.”

Do you feel a need to be more vocal?

“Nope. Uh, uh. Not at all”

What do you guys lose with Jack gone?

“No. 1, besides his scoring and the ability to make the extra pass. What we’ve been emphasizing the whole time is defense. That’s one of our best defenders on the team. And we’re trying to get better as a defensive team. And now, who we got now that’s going to play defense? We got me. And who else?”

Raja Bell is a good defender

“I don’t know too much about dude. I mean (pause) it’s crazy, man.”

Jack was your best friend on the team. Will you bond with another teammate?

“I’m close to all my teammates. I’m still gonna do what we do. We’re going to hang out the way we’ve been hanging out. It ain’t going to be no different. We lost one of our close friends. That’s it. But, hey, life goes on. I’mma talk to him every day. He’s going to talk to me every day. Still going to be like he’s here. So I’m not tripping. Like I said, as long as he’s happy, I’m happy.”

So you’re happy. OK. Cool.

“I’m happy that he’s happy, yeah.”

But you’re not happy?

Yeah. I just said I’m happy that he’s happy. (Laughs)

What’s going to be the key going forward?

“Our young guys gotta pay more attention and learn the game more. They probably need to watch more film and sit back and really evaluate the game more, and better.”
