Uh, Oakland we have a problem

You have to wonder what is going on in Golden State. The Warriors selected scoring phenom Stephon Curry with the seventh pick of the most recent draft, despite having an undersized, score-first combo guard in Monta Ellis. Hey, it worked for me. Talent is talent and in today’s NBA game, the traditional point guard role isn’t nearly what it used to be. A Curry-Ellis backcout sounded like a lot of fun. Perhaps someone should have run this by Ellis.

At Monday’s media day in Oakland, when asked by reporters about the possibilities of playing alongside Curry, Ellis said:

“Us together? No,” Ellis said. “Can’t. We just can’t. … Just can’t.”

“They say you can?” Ellis repeated (when told that the Warriors thought it was a GOOD idea). “They say you can … but you can’t. I just want to win and you’re not going to win that way.”

You gotta love the NBA. Drama, and we haven’t even really started training camp.
