Pistons’ head coach Lawrence Frank believes Monta Ellis is the closest player he has ever seen to Allen Iverson.
Ellis has started all 29 games while averaging 19.7 points (14th in the league), 5.6 assists and 3.6 rebounds. He is shooting below his career average of 46%, at just 40.5%, and is hitting 81.3% of his free throw attempts.
One coach who certainly is impressed with Ellis is Detroit’s Lawrence Frank, who compared him to Allen Iverson before Sunday’s game.
“Those two are lethal,” Frank said, referring to Ellis and Jennings.
“Ellis is a challenge for everyone. Ellis is a nightmare matchup. To me, Ellis is the closest thing to Iverson. He has speed, quickness; he’s a great finisher for his size.”
What do you think about Lawrence Frank’s comparison to the answer?

ST. FRANCIS, Wis. -- Filling the box score in nearly every category, Bucks guard Monta Ellis has been named the NBAs Eastern Conference Player of the Week.

Monta Ellis and Dwyane Wade will forever be equals, at least in Ellis’ mind. The Bucks point guard who, it should be noted, has helped Milwaukee play to the fifth-best record in the Eastern Conference, was asked to compare himself and the two-time champion Heat guard.
Ellis’ response was classic.
The only difference between Wade and himself, Ellis said, “is more wins and two...
Vasquez quietly is having a really nice season.
The Milwaukee Bucks have been one of the most surprising NBA teams this year, as the Bucks currently have a record of 16-13 and are the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference as of today. However, it is well known that they have a very interesting roster, headlined by Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis, both scoring guards, who will both most likely be free agents at the end of the...
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...
The Milwaukee Bucks rallied from a 14 point third quarter deficit to tie the game with about a minute left. However, a clutch bucket and clutch freethrows from Tayshaun (yes, he’s still in Detroit) Prince clinched the victory for the Pistons, 96-94. The Bucks fall to 16-13 with the loss.
Positives: 1) Monta Ellis shot 12/22, had 30 points and 9 assists. But more importantly...
