Mark Cuban Thinks Monta Ellis Wants To Play Second Fiddle To Dirk Nowitzki
Monta Ellis stated last week he’ll continue to play “Monta-ball”, which could be translated to taking bad shots.
“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.’’
