I think Monta gets a lot of flack because of how well Steph has developed, and how much Monta went downhill after leaving golden state.
Monta can put the ball in the bucket, and he's a good playmaker.
What I'm interested in seeing is how he does with a pass first PG like Calderon. We'll see.
This Dallas team may be good enough to be a fringe playoff team, but most likely a first round exit.
NK. Who in the hell points out how good Monta is? The only time he's ever mentioned is when people want to bring up my quotes from like three years ago.
Monta'a biggest issue post-GSW is that he played next to a player very similar to him. He can be a ball-stopper. They both needed the ball to be effective because neither were excellent facilitators for others, like a Paul, Rondo, or Nash. Donnie and Cuban are hoping Calderon can fit that mold.
There aren't any ball stoppers on Dallas right now before the signing. As long as Monta knows when to give up the ball, and has his touch still, he'll be okay. I still believe he has a good mid range jumper.Edited by JapanAir21 - 7/12/13 at 7:51pm
