Monta Ellis better than LeBron

When asked about a recent Rolling Stone article, which declared Kevin Durant better than Kobe Bryant, Monta Ellis raised eyebrows with comments of his own.

"I'm going to say LeBron James," Ellis said when asked about the league's three best players. "He can do it all, pass, score, defend, block shots. No. 2, I would have to say, me. I can do a whole lot of things: defend, score, make passes, do whatever I need to do.

"No. 1, I'd say Kobe Bryant. There isn't one player that can stop Kobe one-on-one. He has a lot of stuff. He can defend. And of course, he won four championships."

LOL...Monta Ellis is a joke

LOL...Monta Ellis is a joke in the quotebooks

1st he said, Lebron was no1, and then he was no2....then a quote later he said Kobe was number one..

And not only did he say defense, but defense was the first word he used to desribe himself...LOL

And the biggest difference between him and Lebron, Kobe, is probably about 40 wins...

No team will ever win with

No team will ever win with Monta as their first option. He's a Gilbert Arenas/Marbury/Francis type player who can post gaudy numbers night after night and never see returns in the win column because his poor decision-making/shot selection/propensity to try and swipe the ball from his opponent rather than play hard defense end up neutralizing his scoring output.

are ya'll kidding?..monta is

are ya'll kidding?..monta is a lock down defender and can out score lebron any day of the week. should be monte then kobe. just because hes on a bad team doesnt mean anything.. this kid is a rich mans gilbert..should be mvp candidate if he had players on his team that could keep up with him. the man can drop 40 every night if he really put his mind to it... ya'll just dont know basketball...if he was lebrons size he would get mvp every year

2nd Best

I guess this is how he justifies taking so many horrible shots a game. It's hard for me to imagine a guy is the 2nd best player in the league and the best he can do is lead his team to the basement of the NBA. The one year Kobe didn't have much help, I am pretty sure he kept that team at or right above .500. As soon as Lebron arrived in Cleveland he picked the franchise up and put it on his back. At some point, it comes down to winning basketball games and not just how many shots you need to maintain or bump up your scoring average.

Jason Kidd is having a solid year, but he's probably not even the 6th best pg in the league.

Lol butidonthavemoney.
I'd like to see a game between Lebron and Monta. Just them one on one. No teammates. Lebron would kick Monta's butt. Ellis is just being a showoff, bias, and does not know what he talking about. He didn't even make the allstar game. How can he be one of the best players in the league and not ever be an allstar?

He defends well when he's

He defends well when he's matched up with a big-time player. That's the only time he defends. He is a menace though in those situations
