Monta Ellis Practices, Declares His Love for the Warriors

by Marcel Mutoni

After everything that happened during Scooter-Gate, some of the more connected folks in the Bay Area hoops world (OK, fine, mostly this dude) were convinced that Monta Ellis wasn’t long for the Warriors.

According to Monta, however, he doesn’t see himself playing anywhere else for a while. From the San Fran Chronicle:

“Listen, whatever it is about me leaving, wanting to go, I don’t want to play for Nellie — that never came from my mouth. I don’t know where they got that from, but I’m here for the next six years. I’m a Warrior. I’m going to always be a Warrior. Whoever put that out there did it because they wanted a story.

I’m making it known right now that I’m a Warrior. I love playing for Nellie. And I never said that, not one time. So you don’t have to worry about that…I’m here for the next six years. Only thing I’m worried about is getting back on the basketball court.”

In continuing with the good vibes, Ellis participated in a full practice for the first time since his injury yesterday, and says he felt pretty good out there.

Game action doesn’t appear too far off into the future, add that to Ellis’s verbal commitment to the franchise, and Warrior fans have reason to finally smile this season.

    Lupe should worry about winning games first rather than pulling something like this

    BLANK

    Why is there a pic of a GQ cover model?

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    Fresh fails at typing coherently.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    Can we just make stuff up? If TAD says there is a CQ cover model, then I say…. that there is a link to D1ME!!! HERESY!
    unless Monta is actually posing for CQ…in that suit.
    Either way its still blank.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    Ya’ll are confusing me. What is blank?

  • http://www.mynameinorange.blogspot.com Hisham

    Looks like they’re setting up a game of Pong right under the headline. Only thing that’s missing is the ball (which is acturally a square, of course)

  • a_whiteman

    I can’t wait to see crawford and mr moped in the same backcourt

  • http://www.mynameinorange.blogspot.com Hisham

    TAD, everything after the headline is blank.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    Hisham makes a very good point.
    This is almost a comment section about nothing.
    Sorry to irritate the slam web workers (Ryne and Co.) but I quite like the Pong approach going on right now.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    Not on my computer. I guess Slam hates anyone outside the US.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    And yes, i’m assuming ya’ll are outside the States.

  • http://www.mynameinorange.blogspot.com Hisham

    Just barely TAD

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    Is Australia not owned by the USA though? Seems that way for almost a decade.

  • http://www.alloutblitz.com Cordeazy

    i’m in NY and also getting Nothin

  • http://www.mynameinorange.blogspot.com Hisham

    Will the game of Pong begin already?? Okay my workday is over. i’ll check back later if the Pong game is underway yet

    “I’m going to always be a Warrior.” – Not so fast Monta, let’s see first, how this injury affected your quickness and athleticism.
