Monta Ellis made a very Monta Ellis layup last night

If he gets a step on his defender and has room on the baseline, I almost assume it’s going to happen.

There have been few Milwaukee Bucks players with a really defined move over the past few years. Unless you want to count Ersan Ilyasova’s ability to tap offensive rebounds to himself before putting them in as layups at the hoop or Andrew Bogut’s wimpy flip shots three feet from the hoop. But the Bucks haven’t had a guy with a real solid move in forever.

Monta Ellis has a move. He does it about once a week. Probably more than that lately.

I’d say it works around half the time, if that. But the Monta Ellis Move is almost an attempt that cannot fail. As soon as he begins to leap, the crowd gets excited because of how quickly he contorts his body and spins through the air. If he misses the layup, at least he took the crowd’s breath away with the attempt.

But when he makes the layup? Well, it’s something.

  1. That was a sick layup! Really been happy with his production since the trade deadline. Some close games as of late and glad to see they’ve been able to get the W. Fear The Deer!

    • Yes indeed!!!

      It was also nice to see Jennings pickup the scoring touch he had right before the Redick trade and also continue his increased assist totals.

      Maybe Brandon is finally accepting the trade and his new role with the Bucks. Winning will do that but the Bucks have an extremely tough 7-games ahead of them. I’d serious be happy with a 3-4 record and blown away if we could finish the trip and that 1st home game against the Heat with a 4-3 record. GO BUCKs!!

      BTW, anybody see Monta’s new footwear. Seemed to be a greenish, high-top with a front zipper. Maybe he got it as a present for himself for winning Player of the Week again. Seems like those cool new flops had some turbo boosters in them on the sic 360 layup!

      Keep it up Monta and please sign that contract extension Hammonds offered you!

      • Those shoes are the Air Jordan XX8 (28). You can get them for about $250 if you can find a place where they aren’t sold out.

    Nice to see some razzle dazzle from this team as of late. Love the spin o rama layup, the behind the back ball fake pass from B.J. to Monta- even the fast break pass to Ilyasova DUNK on Sat. nite( when B.J. could have just layed it in). The sharing has been fun to watch-and seems to BOND this team together lately!!

    Of course, I will take a WIN over razzle dazzle plays everytime. Winning is the BEST CURE for any team- and lets face it, US FANS have stuck thru the down-now enjoying the UP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
