The details have surfaced to my blog post Days of Monta Ellis and it looks as if Ellis did not injury his ankle playing pickup basketball as he said. Shocking…
The San Fransisco Chronicle is reporting that Monta Ellis injured his ankle in a mo-ped accident. Such an occurrence is a direct breach of Ellis’ new six-year $66 million contract extension that he signed with the Warriors this off-season. If the Warriors so choose, they could rip up Ellis’ contract, however I think that would be extremely unlikely. My guess is that Chris Mullin and the Warriors will choose to fine Ellis instead of blowing things way out of proportion.
My question is this, Monta, you just signed a $66 million contract, why in the hell are you riding a mo-ped? Get yourself an ATV, a Harley, a Waverunner or something better than a mo-ped. If you are going to risk it, go for it all with the best. Heck, you can certainly afford to pay for it now. I know 15 year old kids who have a mo-ped and they get bored. I am slightly worried that the “true” true story will come out and say that you were actually hurt on a Segway.
Tell me its not true, Monta, I like cheering for you when you play.
