Mark Cuban Chides Monta Ellis Critics

Updated

on

But (Monta) Ellis, a man who has admitted that the waves of criticism of his game fueled his fire, wasn’t about to boast after by far his best playoff performance. He didn’t see his career playoff-high 29-point performance in the Dallas Mavericks’ sensational 109-108 Game 3 victory over the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday as the time for told-you-so talk.

His billionaire boss sure did.

“Boy, Monta has really made everybody look smart that said it was a dumb signing,” Mavs owner Mark Cuban said, sarcasm dripping with the beads of sweat after the wild celebration at the American Airlines Center set off by Vince Carter’s game-winning buzzer-beater. “He was just the worst signing of the summer. You know, he’s just not efficient in the playoffs, not efficient in the regular season.”
