There has been so much talk about Monta the past couple of months that we forgot how good he really was. We signed him to a $66 million contract for a reason, and that reason was because we wanted to hand over the team to him. We've been caught up in all of this media blabber and forgot that maybe it was always the medias intention to turn our backs on Monta. The game Monta played in Portland really got me amped up about whats to come for the rest of the season. Monta is all star caliber no question!
I forgot what freak of an athlete Monta was before Portlands game; his lighting fast change of gears then finishing with silky smooth layups. Please, name one other person in the NBA that can pull off the kind of layups Monta does night in and night out. If Monta can truly become a better passer and put in the same effort on D against Brandon Roy, we're going to have ourselves a very intriguing/unique specimen on our team for a loooong time.(5+years?)
The last interview I heard with Monta was that he clearly wanted to be a Warrior for as long as possible, and why wouldn't he?! This is HIS team! If he were to go to another organization he might not be their main man. So having that said, I do not mind at all to have Stephen Curry be our point guard because clearly Monta can guard the bigger 2 guards now. Curry is clearly the better point guard right now so let him be the point! The star of the team doesn't have to be the point guard, ala Kobe Bryant. When the game is on the line I want the ball to be in Monta's hands because that's what a leader or a star does. We have to let Monta become the star that we always wanted him to be and for that to happen he has to make the big plays for us.
I'm not sure if I'm the only one that thinks we may have started to hate on Monta a bit too much but all I'm trying to say is we should all start to believe in Monta and know that he'll do what's good for the team from here on out. I feel after Portlands game were going to have a pretty surprising season and our season starts now as a brand new team... hopefully Turiaf, Biedrins, Watson, Wright, Azubuike, Nellie, and now Anthony Randolph get better soon and we can gain back some respect from this league... Dang our team is probably worse off than last season,That's sad!!! LGW!!
