I think we'll use more Ellis to spell Baron at pg... he'll play a bit sg, too. Pending on how we use the sf position, there could be minutes.

Nelson should be declared legally insane if Monta Ellis even see's a wink at SF. The man's barely outta high school, weighs 175 lbs (soaking wet with a brick in his pocket), and can barely ride the rides at Disneyland. A 6'3" guard has no business at the 3-spot. Devin Brown (whose at least 6'5") would be a better option... not that I think it should be done at all.

Regardless... between Dunleavy, Pietrus, Richardson, and Zarko, I'd say that position's already got all the the players it's rotation can handle. Brown and Pietrus will scramble for SG minutes behind Richardson and Ellis.

Yeah. I wasn't thinking on Monta, but on the proposed unit with Monta at sg and J-Rich playing minutes at sf.

Who chose "point guard" on the survey...?

I think that's the only position that's actually declined (lost Fisher for 3 scrubs)...

I agree obviously, Fisher was good for us, and Keith McCloud seriously sucks...

Love is fading fast... by the end of the year you may be cheating with Dun. :mrgreen:




Better chance me chopping off my nads and calling myself Jenny :mrgreen:

... Again, would anybody like to admit to voting for "point guard"...? And explain...?

I just don't get that one. :|

J-Rich? And why'd you put it up if you're surprised that someone clicked it?

Not that I voted pg but one could make a case for Baron Davis being a lot more efficient when:

A) He's playing for a coach he respects
B) He's staying healthy all season (which, theoretically speaking, might happen)
C) We're playing run and gun style

One could also make a case for Monta Ellis being better than D-Fish as second string pg

Well, I put it up for the sake of fairness. If something thinks it, then more power to them... so long as they explain it. If I only put up ones I agreed with, there'd only be 2 positions up there. :mrgreen:

Good points... my major gripe is simply that Monta Ellis isn't a good point guard.

That's not to say he's not a good player; he's one of the brightest young stars on the roster. But the guy can't playmake to save his life... and his assist numbers show it. When Baron Davis was injured, Derek Fisher filled in and walked out of the building with anywhere between 4-10 assists. With Monta...? 4 is about how much he'd get in 30 minutes. :banghead:

Like I said, I think he's an amazing talent. A great scorer, a good rebounder for his size, a tempo pusher, and a fiesty defender... but playmaking isn't one of his strong points.

"B" is the biggest IF but maybe this season can change!

Monta is better than Fishdog already and that is good enough for me 8)

At everything but playmaking... and that's key at point guard.
