Agreed with this. The only thing I dont agree with is I think we traded the wrong small shooting guard (yes, thats what Curry is at this point).
Well we had Klay on the bench waiting to start
Nate Robinson was the backup PG last year lol
Honestly I'd take a healthy Steph Curry over Monta
Monta is so overrated by warriors fans. He's a great scorer but that's really all he can do. I honestly wouldn't trade Klay Thompson for Monta
Monta averaged 20 points per game but the guy shoots 20 times a game too. And he can't defend an average SG
LOL at the bolded statement.
If that's all you think, then he was UNDERRATED. Yes, he could score, but he did much more than that. I bring this up ALL THE TIME. Every time people came on here and said Monta can't do this, or do that, he worked his ass off and proved people wrong. He became a better passer, a better defender, a better shooter outside the arc, a better free throw shooter, etc. The guy continually worked on his game and was a lot more durable than Steph. When Steph was out because of ankle issues, Monta built chemistry with David Lee and Ekpe Udoh. IMO, Udoh developed better from Monta's game.
Not gonna try and make this another Curry vs. Ellis argument, but come on. Curry could end up being the better player but he's just so limited because of his ankle.
