I hope he opts in so we can trade his expiring + picks for Gordon.

A quote from the "win now" article on espn:

The Bucks have enough room under the cap to pursue all three, Hammond said.

I appreciate you folks from the Midwest, your blue collar mentality and overall generous and kind attitudes. Great sense of humor as well. It makes me feel like crap to see you guys suffering like this, but I must admit, the comedic element on this board post-trade deadline has been great. Us Warriors and Bucks fans have an unofficial alliance (We hate the Raptors and Nets too, while you can't stand LA) and our connection through the trades we made continues to be a topic of conversation.

The great thing about Ellis in Milwaukee is you fans weren't suckered in to falling in love with the guy like we were (Although we assumed his ceiling would be higher) so getting rid of him won't be an issue. One thing I'm not fond of is his Basketball iq, as he makes ill advised mistakes in crucial moments. Is he a pg or a sg? One thing he's not is someone you can build a team around. When he was here, he used to cringe and roll his eyes at David Lee when he put his hands out for the ball. Not interested.

As far as my take on Big Bogue, I honestly think he's a bit quicker up and down the court than when he was in Milwaukee. I'm not sure if Bucks fans have noticed this. I know he was starting to develop "the art of blocking" in his final years in Milwaukee but I really think he's hitting his stride now. His timing has gotten so good that he barely gets "posterized" anymore. His post game is so polished that it's almost like watching theatre. Nothing excites me more about this team than seeing Bogut working the post, almost always drawing double teams and then throwing out to Curry or Thompson. And his passing is possibly his best quality for an active player of his size. If he was a foot shorter, he'd be a top 5 pg imo. Obviously I'm judging this in limited minutes but for anyone to say that he lost a step is just wrong. In fact, I think he gained a step. When he's out there, he's the boss. Everything runs through the big guy.

You also have a stud in Larry Sanders. When I see him out there, I feel like he's grown about 4 inches since his rookie year. I know you guys aren't fond of Hammond but he found a "special one" with Sanders. It's a project that became a success and he'll be an All-Star in this league in the next few years.
Good luck Bucks fans!

Sanders is the ideal Center for the offense that we are trying to run.
Bogut could not keep up Jennings and or Monta, although if he stayed healthy, he would lead the league in rebounds off all of our misses

I hope not. We could go get Josh Smith then trade for Dwight Howard and have our own super friends team.

Let's put this historic chucking in perspective. Just to shoot a league-average 45 percent from the floor, Ellis would need to make each and every one of his next 85 shots from the floor. That's a perfect 17-for-17 in each of his next five games. Just to be average. Oh, it gets worse. We have witnessed 1,721 instances in which a player has shot as many 3-point attempts as Ellis so far this season (184). Guess where Ellis' 22.8 percent conversion rate ranks. Yep, 1,721st. No one's ever been worse.

These are the kinds of pieces I'd love to forward to Hammond.

It still truly scares me that he may view Ellis as a long-term piece. I've never been more sick of watching a player than I am at this point with Monta.

At least he's dynamic right ?


What a joke he is. No wonder no other team wants him.

That sounds like a knife fight where neither guy has a knife.


onguard (or should I say off guard) :D

Off like last years milk. He's opting out IMO. The guy is delusional, he thinks he's getting paid whether it's true or not.

That doesn't help. Ellis has so much swag that when a coach tells him he sucks at threes and needs to stop shooting them he takes it as a challenge to prove them wrong. $$$$$$$$$$WWWWWAAAAAAAGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!

Fun fact:
A Monta Ella 3 point attempt is a better shot than a Monta Ella 2 point jumper.

3 point shot: 36.2 Efg%
2 point jumper: 33.8 Efg%

The correct answer is TELL HIM TO STOP PLAYING BASKETBALL.

If he opts in it will be awful. If they extend him it will be one of the worst days of my life. (jk...but please dear god don't extend him)

It's actually funnier than that, a Monta Ella 3 point shot is also better than his 3-9 foot shot. That's right that 23% 3 ball is his best non layup shot.

HAVE IT ALL.
