Warriors Expectations: "It all depends on Monta Ellis"

With the hopefully upcoming season, Warriors fans are, again, pretty exited about the current roster and possible moves. But should we really get our hopes up?


I now bring you, Warriors Expectations...

Klay Thompson

(kinda looks like Corey Matthews)

A young man once said that the light-skined/biracial athlete will inherit the earth, Klay, and steph, are reasons why. The Washington State 2-guard comes from a basketball family with his father, Mychal,  playing 12+ years in the NBA. His great scoring really boosts the Dubs, being a big guard doesn't hurt either. The issue I see is where does he fit on this team? Monta will have to take less minutes or just be traded in-order to give Klay a real shot at proving himself and helping this team. Riley and "The Logo" got him as a possible Monta replacement and I think he will work-out just fine, alongside Dwight Howard.

 

Ekpe Udoh

Ekpe really showed what he can do if you give him some playing time. At times he looked like, well, a rookie, but when he got in the zone, he became BLOCKULA, the blocking machine. Don't count on him starting too early in the season under Coach Jackson, he might need to ripen and mature before coach thinks about that happening. His future lies with Monta's future as well. If a Starting center is brought in, where does that leave Ekpe? On the bench, waiting.

 

Stephen Curry

In just 2 seasons, Steph has proven to be one the elite* point guards in the league and just like Klay, he has basketball in his blood. Again, his further development depends on where Monta will play next season. Expect him to only get better.
