Monta Ellis '14
Written by Jimmybutlersson
MONTA ELLIS IS A POINT GUARD.
I played my first few games with him next to westbrook and was super disappointed. He needs the ball in his hands badly. He's a pretty good 3 pt shooter but it's not his best quality. Use him in the pick and roll as the ball handler and shoot the three or middy if they go under. If not, he's one of the fastest players in the game and will finish at a high rate. He dunks the ball pretty often, and has good animations to not get blocked.
MONTA ELLIS HAVE IT ALL Honestly, if you are good with a quick, athletic point guard like Wall or Westbrook, you will thrive with Monta. He's basically Westbrook with a sweet jumper. If you really want to shine with him, start learning how to play in the mid range. It takes time if you're only used to dunks and 3's but it's so satisfying when you add it to your game. If you get a clean shot from mid with this dude its money.
His release isn't the BEST as it's on the slower side, but he jumps super high when he shoots making it harder to contest. I actually like it but I can see some people complaining.
Bought for: Probably around 50k total. I was already using Durant, Klay, and Dray in my lineup so it was definitely worth it to complete the set.
Pick and roll Finishes in the paint (Nice dunk animations)
pretty good defender(on PG's only)
Weaknesses: Not great off- ball
Will struggle defensively on 2's
If you have 2 or 3 warriors in your lineup and need a PG upgrade, PICK HIM UP
