And 1 ME8 MLK Tribute I'm sorry. I know there's tons of Monta Ellis homers and apologists in Warriors Nation and across the NBA fan-scape who will go to no end to make excuses for this 23 year old "kid", but this is just plain silly. Someone please explain to me what plausible analogy exists between Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Moped Ellis? What a dumb way to market basketball shoes, especially right after Moped Gate. Looks like Ellis is not only getting bad advice from his agent Jeff Fried (lying about the cause of his ankle injury and publicly complaining about the punishment) but also the "marketing" team at And 1. "They said"... Boycott this "MLK Tribute".
