You can make a case for all 3, but I went with Ersan since he played with confidence, was a beast on the boards and showed up defensively as well tonight on Young.

Ersan was a monster but everybody knew about the matchup between Jennings and Holiday and Brandon ate his lunch on national TV. Brandon gets the nod from me.

I liked everybody tonight though. They looked good.

Was on the fence while the game was actually winding down, but taking actual game impact and then looking at the boxscore, I think it had to be Ersan. Monta was 7/10 with 10 assists and Jennings was huge during that stretch in the middle of the fourth, and he hounded Jrue all game, pretty much shutting him down. Ersan and Jennings were really co-MPV's.

Ersan.

This is one of those games where you wish you could vote for all three, though

Ersan but Jennings' full court defense is definitely bothering people. Why it took Kobe doing it to him to remember it used to be the best part of his game is a question I don't have the endurance to deal with right now.

Ersan. He is finally playing good again but I would trade him for Gasol. Losing his 3 point shooting would suck but Pau should do everything else better.

My thinking too. Although we do need a player that score in the post.

This may have been my favorite Monta game. This would have been our best team performance of the year if it hadn't been for crappy games from LRM and Sanders. I've come to expect Udoh to play poorly. While Ellis's defense got worse as the minutes piled on, I thought this was a smarter more subdued performance when he didn't feel as though he had to do too much. Imagine if Ellis were this efficient all the time.
The Bulls are the absolute worst.

I agree that he actually had a really solid game, save for when we witnessed a live performance of "The Count of Monta's Missed Throws" by Alexander Dumbass late in the fourth. Aside from his lack of clutchness and the total ineptitude to close out final possessions in quarters, or at least even get a shot attempt off, he had a very nice night overall.

Also, lol at that possession where Ersan grabbed a defensive rebound over Monta in the first half when Monta had something like 4/7/4. He screamed so hard at Ersan for stealing what would've been his fifth board :lol:

Poor Tobes can't any game time though. And Henson is only playing 20 minutes a night. Just look at it this way. With Ersan's current play I'd be more upset than happy if we traded him for Pau.

I'm still looking to sell high and move Ersan, but I think with all the speculation about how Pau would fit in in another venue and whether he'll decide to "be the man" once again or just mail it in is giving me second thoughts about moving Ers for him, even if it means shedding the contract and going full-blown win-now with Pau for 1-2 years.

That trade's never happening anyway, so I really don't pay much attention to the chatter surrounding it.

Trading for Pau Gasol is NEVER going to happen for the Bucks. Thankful for that.
Jennings will be an All-Star. Monta is an All-Star level player.
