    Mark Jackson: Monta Ellis Ranks As NBA's Third Best SG

    http://www.philly.com/philly/sports/..._in_Ellis.html

    "I want Monta Ellis on this basketball team," Jackson told reporters at his introductory news conference. "This guy is a big-time player. And I think he's the third best shooting guard in the league. You have Kobe, obviously, and Dwyane Wade. I will match [Ellis] up against anybody else on a given night and feel extremely comfortable about it."
    Jackson did admit that Ellis could improve defensively.

    "You can nitpick what he can and can't do, but at the end of the day, a coach will look brilliant if he has a guy who can go make a play," Jackson said. "He's a flat-out scorer. He's a much-improved, underrated passer and facilitator. He's a guy I embrace on this team . . . He's an outstanding player who I look forward to coaching."
    "Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships."
    - Michael Jordan

    Thanks MJ-Bulls for the picture.

    LOL, put down the mic Marc. You'll have plenty of time for your misguided propaganda in post-game press conferences explaining losses next year.

    not surprising...of course he's gonna rep his player. what kinda coach would he be if he didn't think Ellis is a top SG?

    Yeah, this means nothing to me... Ellis is still on the trading block. What'd you expect him to say?

    pace and usage my friend

    and his defense is

    look at the advanced stats... in his career he is -6 as player per 100 possessions... a guy that gives up more points then he can score will never be a top player...

    he has his reasons for saying this. Obviously its not true at all however

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    He forgot Michael Redd..Ellis can be #4.


    Offensively, Monta is talented enough, but as an overall player it's hard to say Top 3 when he doesn't play sufficient defense. That being said, you WANT a coach to say this. He's got to support his own players.
