Monta Ellis Compares Himself to Dwyane Wade (Video)

Haha.  This is a short video, but very funny indeed.  Monta Ellis of the Milwaukee Bucks compares himself to Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat.  What I don't get is why he didn't compare himself to Michael Jordan if he's gonna talk crazy?  Might as well go all the way to the top. Check out the funny video below. And yes Monta, 2 championships kind of matters.  Just...
