Monta was the man when he came into the league. When his rookie contract ended and he got dat payday his game got dat gayday. man what a sad boy boy Curry da realniss now in the bay nobody even remember Monta. Some people say what happened to that one guy Monty. Im like I dont know he retired or something but I heard he still playin that was amazin. cant believe some teams still want him
Offensively, Monta needs to bring back his midrange catch-n-shoot game. He was a deadly midrange shooter with Baron because his game was very similar to Rip Hamiltons the way the used to come of screens. Now he just does a lot of pick-n-rolls and every year that passes he adds more and more spot up 3's. That is killing his scoring efficiency.
He also needs players that can punish the defense if they try to clog the paint. He gets bounced around so much inside because the opposing teams clog the paint, and he doesn't get the calls he probably should from the refs. So he needs teammates that can punish the defense from outside so the paint can open up for Monta to drive. The "We Believe" Warriors had positions 1-4 able to shoot the 3, and when they went small all positions 1-5 could shoot the 3. Monta didn't shoot 3's though, he would drive or pull-up for a midrange jumper, or catch-n-shoot midrange jumpers. Thats when he is at his best scoring wise.
