He's been putting up big numbers since February.

Knowing our FO him and Bogut will be gone.

Yep. That is the same front office who traded back 10 picks to get Wack Jacko. Could they deal our lottery pick? You bet they could

Wow Ilyasova over Dwight? Wins over the Bulls, Pacers and Raptors while Dwight dominated each game (30+pts 15+rbs); I guess the one loss against the Bobcats after being up 20 really hurt him.

I get excited everytime there is a thread around monta in the nba forum. For some reason all he does is get bashed and in this case not even being talked about. He is playing the best ball of his career right now

Monta is beast

Monta is on another level right now. This is the first time in his career he has made an effort on defense, and he's shutting people down. He's also getting other involved more & more.

Monta's had an OK/pretty good year, but an awesome week.

Truthfully I hope this 'player of the week' bumps up his trade value just that much and the Warriors actually pull the trigger on some franchise changing moves. NOW.
