Mark Cuban Thinks Monta Ellis Wants To Play Second Fiddle To Dirk Nowitzki

Mark Cuban is hopeful Monta Ellis will adjust his game.

Monta Ellis stated last week he’ll continue to play “Monta-ball”, which could be translated to taking bad shots.

Dallas owner Mark Cuban is hopeful Ellis will alter his game to win.

“I think he wants to be a compliment to Dirk as opposed to being the guy,’’ owner Mark Cuban said after Sunday’s practice at American Airlines Center. “He’s a good passer, a willing passer and he gets where he wants to on the court.

“He’s committed to playing defense, he’s a willing learner and he’s a got a high basketball IQ.’’
