Monta Ellis had it all… An agent, eleven million dollars, an extension offer, a moped…

A three-year $36 million extension with Milwaukee has become three for $29 with Dallas two weeks later. As Keanu would say, “Whoa.”

Monta shake.

Monta Ellis and Corey Maggette engage in the most complex pre-game hand shake of all-time. 

I’ve heard that Monta has the most as well as the most complex hand shakes, but this one it ridiculous. It’s so long that it seems like they have to remind each other when to move on to the next step. 

I wonder if it comes with instructions…

Monta Ellis’ game is a work of art.
Monta went off for 33 points, 3 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 steals tonight as his Warriors knocked off Derrick Rose and the red hot Chicago Bulls 101-90. 
Monta scored in every way imaginable including this reverse ally-oop layup off an inbounds pass. Enjoy.

Monta Ellis effectively ends the Warriors-Kings game with a blind, reverse layup in overtime. A clutch three is a “dagger”; this was more like a straight razor across the collective throat of the Kings.

America needs Monta Ellis in the All-Star Game. Vote!

NBA STATS TO WATCH FOR: PACIFIC DIVISION

This has been a fascinating year thus far. It’s not just the off-season transactions, the Lakers going for another three-peat, or the hype in South Beach. From rookies to veterans, we are in the middle of one of the most exciting statistical seasons, ever. Most of that can be attributed to some of the all-time great players reaching the end of their careers or young guys trying to make a name for themselves. We are a quarter of the way through the year and here are the statistical standouts thus far:

……….


Los Angeles Lakers (1st, 17-7)

Ironman 2: Now that Andre Miller sacked his own 632-game streak, Derek Fisher is the new active leader in consecutive games played with 437. Old. Reliable. Fisher.

Former Laker, A.C. Green, still holds the NBA record at an astounding 1,192 straight games.

……….


Phoenix Suns (2nd, 11-12)

One for the Books: 

Steve Nash has 8,612 career assists which ranks him #8 all-time. Nash has also averaged about 750 assists per year. This year he is putting up 10.2 assists per game. With 215 of them already in the record books, Nash is on pace to record 622 more assists giving him a career total of 9,234 assists at the end of the season. If Nash hits these totals he will rank 5th all-time in assists. Along the way he will pass Gary Payton (8,966) and Isiah Thomas (9,061) sometime this season. Up next is #5 Oscar Robertson with 9,887, everyone else is in the 10,000 club, which I’m sure Steve will find himself in when he retires. Amazing feat by the 2-time MVP considering he didn’t truly become a starter in the NBA until he was 26 years old.

Side Note: Steve Nash would have to average 10 assists a game for 82 games a year for another 8.7 seasons in order to just match John Stockton’s all-time mark of 15,806 career assists.

……….


Golden State Warriors

Dynamic Duo: Stephen Curry and Monta Ellis are the NBA’s highest scoring backcourt at a combined 44.1 points per game (Curry – 20.1 ppg, Ellis – 24.0 ppg). Silly Monta, we told you it would work.

……….


Sacramento Kings (4th, 5-16)

I hate to break it to you but if you came here looking for Sacramento Kings’ stats, you’re probably cheering for the wrong team.

……….


Los Angeles Clippers

Earth-Quake-Blake: Blake “The Quake” Griffin is trying to bring down Staples, one rim at a time. According to CBS Sports’ Dunk-O-Meter, Blake has a league leading 53 dunks on the year, tying him with Amar’e Stoudemire.

CHECK MY $TATS: 12/2/2010
LeBron James vs. Monta Ellis
LeBron: 38 pts / 8 asts / 5 rebs / 1 stl
Monta: 38 pts / 7 asts / 4 rebs / 1 stl / (5 fouls)
LeBron has the better stat line mainly because of the cold dish he served the city of Cleveland while Monta got in some foul trouble in the 4th and lost at home to Phoenix. Regardless, these guys scored 38 points each.  Monta Ellis continues to be a Fantasy nerd’s best friend.

Monta Ellis this year is a beautiful thing. Outside the NBA with the video to make you realize.

Ever since I “drafted” Monta Ellis on my Fantasy team it’s pretty much exactly like listening to a Bill Withers track. I definitely forgot to switch starters and may have inadvertently benched Chris Paul a few times, but the next day I take a look at Monta’s stat line and “Lovely Day" instantly starts playing in my head. Future All-Star in the making.

Stat-O-Rama: 10/27/2010

Every morning we scan the box scores to find the stat line that stood out the most. It’s not always the highest scorer, but it’s always an amazing line. 

Scanning last night’s box scores for stat lines, I couldn’t just pick one. Who could, with 13 games on the schedule there was bound to be a few eye popping stat stuffers out there. 

Monta Ellis: 46 points (18 of 24 shooting, 75% fg%!!!), 3 rebs, 2 asts, 2 stls and 1 to. That single turnover is a rarity for Monta. 

Chris Paul: 16 points, 4 rebs, 17 asts, 1 to and a giant F-you to Deron Williams.

Tonight there are two games on the schedule, lets see who balls out.

Selected Quotes from Stephen Jackson at the Golden State Warriors Media Day:
[On wanting to be traded and requesting a trade during the summer]: “Don’t ask me questions I already answered. I feel the same way I felt last time. Y’all know I got fined, so don’t ask me the questions if you don’t want me to get fined. Kobe (Bryant) said the same thing two years ago and didn’t get a fine, but we’re not going to beat a dead horse. They know they’re wrong. But I can’t beat the NBA so I’ve got to roll with it.”
"You want me to send you an e-mail, Facebook or something? I’m a grown man, I have six kids, I’m married now, so I speak my mind. I thought I had freedom of speech but obviously I don’t."
"Every year I’ve lost somebody I felt helped me get to that, with Baron (Davis), Jason (Richardson), Al. It felt like I’m next. It feels like we’re not getting better. It’s no disrespect to guys on the team. I love all the guys on the team and I’m not saying the job couldn’t get done with them, but at the same time I came into this game a winner and I want to continue to be a winner."
Another highlight of team harmony at media day comes from Warriors’ guard Monta Ellis regarding playing with rookie Stephen Curry:
From NBA Fanhouse:

"Us together? No," Ellis said. "Can’t. We just can’t. … Just can’t."
Someone then jumped in and said to Ellis: “Do you understand, they (the Warriors and coach Don Nelson) say you can?
"They say you can?" Ellis repeated. "They say you can … but you can’t. I just want to win and you’re not going to win that way."

"It’s different," Ellis said. "When you’re trying to compare Stephen and you’re trying to go back with me and Baron (Davis) playing. It’s a different situation. You’ve got a nine-year veteran who has been in the game and understands the game and knows how to play the game and he’s got a big body.
 “You can’t put two small guys out there and play the one and the two. You’ve got big two-guards in the league. You just can’t do it. Yes, you’re going to move up and down but eventually the game is going to slow down. You can’t do it.”
