Although he is Golden State’s best player, it may be in the best interest of the Warriors to trade star player Monta Ellis. Ellis is a solidified all-star, but there are two reasons why he should be traded. The first is that he is very injury prone. He has only played a combined 89 games over the past two seasons. The other reason is that he could possibly be stopping the development of Stephen Curry. Curry had a phenomenal rookie year, averaging 17.5 points per contest.
But both Ellis and Curry truly strive from running the offense. While either can play both PG and SG, both excel when handling the ball. It would be an injustice to either one to not have the ball in their hands. So if Ellis was dealt, then it would be Curry’s team to run.
Either way, Golden State is in trouble due to the contracts that Biedrins and Maggette have. But trading Ellis would allow Curry to truly develop into the star that he can, and will be.

NBA Rookie of the Year would be a nice honor for Stephen Curry, if he manages to beat out Sacramento’s splendid Tyreke Evans.
Much more important is the fact that the Warriors took a bit of a flyer on Curry and he wildly exceeded expectations. Whatever the Warriors do for next season – new owner, new coach, new home city, roster overhaul – it all has to revolve around their waif-like point guard.
Curry and Evans figure to fight their who’s-best fight for another decade or so, and Rookie of the Year is only one small step. Magic Johnson and Larry Bird fought a similar duel in 1979-80, two instant legends, and I don’t even remember who won the award, even though I witnessed every minute Johnson played that season.
I don’t care enough to look it up; their deeds that season outshine any trophy.
